This is a one of a kind guitar build by Dana Bourgeois to commemorate the 5000th instrument built at his company. Brazilian Rosewood back, sides, and headstock overlay. Adirondack Spruce Top. Honduran mahogany neck with ebony fretboard. Certified and legally obtained mammoth ivory bridge, saddle, nut, end piece and heel cap. 25" scale length. All Hide Glue construction. Includes specs sheet signed by Dana Bourgeois, an "Acoustic Guitar" magazine in which the guitar is featured on the front page and has a write up on it. There is also a DVD with pictures showing the process of making of the guitar. Includes original figured mahogany coffin case with brass hardware.
Body: Premium Adironcack spruce top with premium Brazilian rosewood back and sides, mammoth ivory pyramid bridge, end piece inlay and heel cap. 25" scale length. All Hide Glue construction.
Neck: Quartersawn Honduran mahogany neck with a soft-V profile, 1 3/4” wide nut, ebony fretboard, mother-of-pearl inlays, and Brazilian rosewood headstock overlay. Mammoth Ivory nut and saddle.
Pickups/Hardware: Gold Waverly with genuine mother of pearl buttons. Ebony pins inlaid with Mammoth Ivory and Silver. No electronics.
Cosmetic Condition: This guitar is incredibly clean all around and appears to have been played very rarely. The finish is nice and glossy with no signs of play wear or damage. The neck and headstock are also very smooth and glossy with no dings or chips to be found. There is an interesting wood grain inconsistency on the bass side of the headstock that kind of looks like a crack, but is not a crack. This extremely rare Bourgeois is a work of art!
Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.
Modifications/Repairs: Repro strap buttons
Weight: 3lbs 6oz
