Bourgeois D Large Soundhole - Adirondack Top - Brazilian Back and Sides - Vintage Style Herringbone

$ 9,863.00


Our Large Soundhole D incorporates many of the features that bluegrass flatpickers search for in those "Holy Grail" pre-war dreadnoughts. The enlarged soundhole, special rosette, custom pickguard and blank, bound 21-fret fingerboard capture the proper authentic aura for this specialty model. Dana has also incorporated the hallmarks of his own current designs, including our Aged Tone™ torrefied top, braces and Aged Tone™ finish. The result is a more of a tribute than a replica, and we feel it makes the perfect bluegrass guitar. Many have remarked that these Large Soundhole Ds are louder and slightly more open than our standard dreadnoughts, while still maintaining our signature balance and clarity. With the inclusion of our Aged Tone™ package as a feature for this model, these instruments have a strikingly "vintage" sound that is sure to thrill many a flatpicker dreaming of owning their own pre-war "bone".
