The Bourgeois 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 Aged Tone torrefied top, braces and Aged Tone finish. The result is a more of a tribute than a replica, and Bourgeois feels that it makes the perfect bluegrass guitar. Many have remarked that these Large Soundhole Ds are louder and slightly more open than their standard dreadnoughts, while still maintaining their signature balance and clarity. These models have a strikingly "vintage" sound that is sure to thrill many a flatpicker dreaming of owning their own pre-war "bone".Learn More
Who has not seen the Andy Griffith show? If you raised your hand, go watch them all right now, then we'll talk. You back? Excellent. Remember Andy playing a Martin D-18 without a pickguard? Well, here's the story on that: Andy was doing the great movie, "A Face In The Crowd", and they needed a fancy guitar for the movie, so the prop man bought a new D-18 (this was the 50's), painted it black, put rhinestones all over it, and had "Lonesome Rhodes" painted on the front. After filming, Andy stole the guitar...well, he borrowed it. He took it home, took all the finish off, and re-finished it in natural. He later took the guitar to New York, where John D'Angelico refinished it professionally for him. Andy liked the way it looked without the pickguard, so he kept it that way. Pretty cool, right? The guitar we have is quite reminiscent of Andy's guitar. We have a 1967 Martin D-18 that was special ordered without a pickguard. It came from the factory like that. A rare special order. Perhaps the original owner was an Andy fan. It's in very good condition, showing some playing wear. There is a small area on the upper bout where it looks like the guitar was bumped. The neckset is marginal; it's playable as-is, but would benefit greatly from a neckset. The frets are playable, but again, it would benefit from a refret. It is really a great sounding guitar. It has the vintage Martin D-18 tone...one of the most universally applicable and infinitely versatile tones. It is one of the coolest 60's Martin D 18 models I've seen in a long time. Comes with non original hard case.Learn More

To introduce the new Advanced Slope D, Bourgeois is offering a special limited edition of 12 guitars. It features Bourgeois's Aged-Tone Adirondack Spruce top, with Brazilian Rosewood back & sides, and a special inlay in the bridge wings. As always, all of the sunbursts are applied by Dana Bourgeois himself.
When Eric, (Our beloved leader) asked me to describe this guitar, I was quite frankly, intimidated. I open the case and I was stunned. How can mere words possibly do justice to this fine instrument? We have a new Bourgeois Slope D-Advanced Limited Edition. The top is Aged Tone Adirondack Spruce, back and sides are Brazilian Rosewood, (that's right, Brazilian), 14 frets clear of the body, Ebony peghead veneer, fingerboard is Guatemalan Rosewood, Waverly tuners, Sunburst finish on top, firestripe pickguard. I wonder if it sounds any good? Well, I'll be darned, it sounds phenomenal. Why am I not surprised? This is one of the best acoustic guitars we have had in a while. This guitar is stunning not only in looks but also tone, it's a work of art that will inspire future guitarists for many years.Learn More
Thanks to breakthrough Taylor design, the GS Mini Bass offers players a remarkably inviting small-scale acoustic bass that’s compact, lightweight and ultra-comfortable on the hands. Adding to the popular heritage of our GS Mini family, this four-string bass sibling is even more impressive for its ability to create natural-sounding bass notes despite a condensed 23-1/2-inch scale length — about 10 inches shorter than the scale length of a standard bass guitar. Part of the magic is the custom nylon-core strings (with phosphor bronze wrap wire) developed with our friends at D’Addario exclusively for the bass (in fact, no other strings will work on it). Together with our patented dual-prong bridge pin design, the bass not only sounds great but also yields a slinky feel. And with the condensed fret spacing, playing bass is now physically easier on anyone’s hands, from kids to bass newbies to seasoned bass players craving a couch-friendly option. It’s an inspiring tool to have on hand for writing, recording demos, and jamming with friends. The bass comes equipped with our ES-B onboard electronics, along with a hard bag featuring adjustable backpack straps for easy portability.Learn More
Taylor’s 12-fret necks feature the slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length of the Grand Concert and a repositioned bridge that sits closer to the center of the lower bout. The result is a slinkier handfeel that makes it easier to form chords and bend strings, and a tonal response that boasts surprising power, warmth, and sustain for the smaller body. The blackwood back and sides produce a strong midrange focus with a splash of top-end shimmer, while the mahogany top helps even out the tonal response. Other distinctive features include a shaded edgeburst top, an all-satin finish, small diamond inlays in Italian acrylic, a Venetian cutaway, and Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup.Learn More
The 714ce sports Taylor’s popular and versatile Grand Auditorium body style and incorporates a compelling alternate take on the classic rosewood/spruce pairing, featuring Lutz spruce rather than Sitka. Together with Taylor’s Performance bracing and tone-enhancing protein glues, players can expect a bold and dynamic voice that balances rosewood’s natural overtone sparkle with a strong fundamental focus, giving this and other 700 Series guitars a rootsy musical personality with expansive musical range. That musical character is matched by an aesthetic that’s grounded in Americana style and refined with Taylor’s precision-crafted details. Rosewood’s mocha complexion is complemented with wood-rich trim, featuring Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette of Douglas fir with maple/black accents, bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, and a “weathered brown” pickguard design with a pattern reminiscent of leather. Modern playing amenities include a Venetian cutaway and Taylor’s stage-ready ES2 pickup and preamp.Learn More

Those guys at Bourgeois know about loud, wow, this guitar is loud! We are offering a new Bourgeois Slope D "The Standard" with an "Aged Tone" Adirondack spruce top and Mahogany back and sides. It's a fine, fine, super fine guitar. It really is the standard all guitars should be judged by. If you are familiar with late 40's early 50's Gibson J-50 and J-45 guitars, you'll know the sound I'm talking about, warm, rich, loud and succinctly brilliant.
Dana Bourgeois' passion for acoustic guitars was fostered by those coveted instruments built in the pre-war era. "The Standard" model was inspired by the classic designs that emerged from the midwestern United States at that time, but incorporates many elements of Dana's own design.
It starts with the striking Ziricote fretboard and bridge, beautiful in figure yet subtle enough to maintain the pre-war look. The single ring Ivoroid rosette and rectangular bridge hearken back to those old designs. Our contoured headstock was introduced with the L-DBO model, and fits the look perfectly!Learn More
