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.
