Description

Here, we're looking at a guitar which elicits a visceral response from the player. This 2007 Bourgeois OMS was custom-built with Macassar Ebony for the back and sides, Italian Spruce for the top, and a 12-fret neck for clarity and punch. The ideal fingerstyle guitar, this OMS responds beautifully to a range of approaches, offering impressive depth of tone and articulate warmth in the middle registers to breathe new life into your fingerstyle arrangements.

This Bourgeois is so comfortable to play (with freshly polished frets courtesy of our very own repair shop), it's difficult to keep track of time when it's in your hands. There are notes across the upper register which shimmer with overtones once played, and from the low E to the high, the balance is precise and even. Lowered tunings let the bass notes really swell, thanks to the striking Macassar Ebony back and sides, and the setup is glass-smooth and addictively effortless.

They hit the nail on the head with this one. The richness of the low end is well-balanced by the other registers, and the sustain is sweet and lingering.
 
A nicely-balanced guitar with lots of vintage appeal. The bass is nice and full but perfectly controlled.
