Description

Dana Bourgeois's team has consistently churned out some gorgeous guitars for the NAMM shows over the years, and this OMS, made for Winter NAMM 2005, is number nine of ten! Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, Adirondack Spruce for the top, 12-fret design for maximum warmth, arm rest for added comfort--what more could one ask for of a fingerstyle instrument?

The slightly wider nut (at 1 25/32") gives the left hand just a smidge more room, making those complex fingerings easier, and the 12-fret neck gives the strings an easy tension that oozes rich warmth right out of the gate. Players looking for an intimately-sized guitar with a focused, articulate voice, look no further: this 2005 Bourgeois provides excellent string-to-string balance, and has just had its frets freshly polished by our repair staff so it plays like a newborne babe.

The neck has a comfortable profile that keeps my hands from quickly tiring, and the voice has a well-focused low end that stays crisp even when I tune down to D or C tunings.
 
This guitar has a strong midrange presence that lends itself well to recording or ensemble playing. The neck feels wonderful with a very slight V and not a lot of thickness.
