This guitar is the finest Dana Bourgeois instrument we have ever had at Wildwood! One of the original Bourgeois dealers, we began with Dana when he first started building on his own! Dana created this awesome 12-fret-joined guitar with a 25.5" scale length, to harness dreadnought power in a perfect fingerstyle body! "Balance, power, and full, piano-like sound: our richest-sounding guitar" is how Dana describes this instrument! Crafted from old-growth now-extinct Brazilian Rosewood (Dalbergia Nigra), this wood that Dana chose for the back and sides has a provenance that dates back almost 100 years! Dana was going to use Premium Adirondack for the top, but opted for rarer, aged Master Grade Engelmann (high-elevation) Alpine Spruce. Traditional Ivoroid binding adorns the body, neck and headstock. The vintage-style belly bridge is placed at the widest part of the lower bout--to very effectively drive the expertly-braced top. Extravagant Waverly tuners, recognized worldwide as the finest machines, elegantly hold the accurate pitches of each string. Beautiful fleur-de-lis inlays were selected for the fingerboard of this Custom guitar. Historically, the fleur-de-lis is said to signify perfection, light, and life! It is the perfect inlay for this guitar! Dana cut a custom 1 3/4" bone nut, and by hand formed his expertly-compensated bone saddle. He was so precise in making this instrument, that each bridge pin was hand-fashioned to fit perfectly in each string placement. He scored in each pin the appropriate amount of notches, so each pin could be returned to its rightful string! This guitar has an exquisite voice with tonal properties of an angel. Dana's Custom OMS design brings about maximum power with minimum playing effort, and affords the player a beautiful open quality to the sound!
