Dana Bourgeois says: “Many years ago, inspired by Eric Schoenberg, I built what I believe was the first OM having a style of cutaway that has since become something of a modern classic. Eric and I later founded a company to produce the new model, which we named "The Soloist", after an elegant fingerstyle guitar from the Victorian era. The Bourgeois Soloist is a true fingerstyle OM, featuring a European spruce top, Brazilian rosewood back and sides, a 2 5/16" ebony pyramid bridge, and the original Soloist style cutaway. Maintaining the spirit of the original Soloist, I combined the finest woods with the simplest of appointments, including Ziricote body bindings, simple wooden rosette, short pattern slotted squares and diamonds inlay, and a distinctive slotted triangle on the heel cap. While on the subject of decoration, I should note that the marquetry backstrip that I first designed for the Soloist (and now use on many of my guitars) has been as widely emulated, and is presently available through a number of lutherie suppliers. Far from being offended, I am delighted by the notion that other luthiers have mistaken this for vintage design!"
