The best thing about Bourgeois' Vintage Dreadnought is that you don't have to imagine what it might sound like if you custom ordered it with an Adirondack spruce top. Theirs is the only standard herringbone - style dreadnought that can make this claim. Adirondack spruce, also known as Eastern Red Spruce, was the legendary topwood used on most pre-war American-made guitars. Properly sawn, Adirondack is much stiffer than Sitka and Engelmann spruce, both along and across the grain. This allows Bourgeois to make thinner, lighter tops, resulting in lightning-quick response and power to spare. Most guitar grade "Adirondack" spruce these days comes from their own backyard--the state of Maine, which still has large stands of original and second growth softwood forests.Learn More
Upgraded with Floral fingerboard inlay, Cutaway, and Bound fingerboard and headstock.
The OM is already a small guitar. Its unique sound results from the ratio between its 25.5" scale length, the surface area of its soundboard, and the volume of its air cavity. The addition of a cutaway, therefore, is no small consideration. Harmonizing beautifully with the classic curves of the original OM outline, Dana's original cutaway offers three additional frets of accessibility while minimally altering the OM's critical proportions and characteristic sound.
Featuring an Adirondack Spruce top, this is a perfect guitar for the fingerstyle player. This OMC is appointed with East Indian Rosewood back and sides, abalone rosette, floral fretboard inlay, ebony belly bridge, ivoroid binding, and Waverly nickel tunersLearn More
