Description

In excellent shape, built very recently in 2016, our latest Bourgeois Dreadnought is a beast of another order. This is Dana’s Fully Torrefied AT model, meaning the Mahogany back, sides, and top have all been baked for that old world vintage tone in a new package. A vintage-style Sunburst really sets off the woods, and even the braces are baked! Of course, Hide Glue construction throughout. Nickel Waverly tuners, a V neck with slim, 1 23/32” nut for deft fretwork and 2 3/16” spacing at the saddle. The voice is crisp and loud, and you don’t have to lay into the string to get a lot of projection. Of course, should you choose to dig in you’ll be rewarded with a dry tone with lots of headroom. This is a fantastic example of what happens when you pair traditional concepts with modern technology and design: the Bourgeois D Fully Torrefied AT.


Here's an additional demo with our local flatpick phenom Will Saylor: https://youtu.be/aIh3EQIVUpM.

Here’s a very beautiful sunburst Mahogany guitar for the picker that wants a woody tone. All Mahogany, including the top, this one is clear as a bell. As easy to look at as it is to play.
