2003 Bourgeois OM Vintage | Madagascar RW & Adirondack
It is not often that we receive a beautiful pre-loved Bourgeois OM, let alone one made out of insanely gorgeous, straight grained, Madagascar Rosewood and tremendously tight grained Adirondack. Being from 2003 this guitar has had plenty of time to open up and it has! Some words that come to mind regarding tone: crisp, clear, articulate, mature, balanced, rich, meaty and warm. Dripping in all of the tonal goodness one expects from a Dana Bourgeois guitar.
Elegantly appointed in the pre-war style, this instrument features Ivoroid binding, heel cap and bottom wedge. A herring bone purfling and vintage zig-zag back strip, along with Waverly butterbean tuners. Slotted square and diamond fretboard inlay with Bourgeois logo in Abalone shell. Classic faux tortoise pickguard. A bone nut, saddle and bridge pins make this guitar sing! And to top it all off the Ebony fingerboard and bridge are black as night.
Our clients often comment on how comfortable the neck of Bourgeois guitars are. Being a modern slim neck, it features the slightest V to fit into the crook of the hand. The nut width on this guitar is a standard 1 3/4" The action is set medium low so it is super easy to play.
Despite being nearly twenty years old, this instrument is in pristine condition. We would describe it as excellent to nearly mint condition. Upon inspection I saw no visible dings or dents, no fret wear and only the lightest pinky drag wear on the pickguard. Not even dents on the top of the headstock! This thing is in wonderful condition. Whoever ends up with this one is going to be SUPER lucky.
This guitar comes with the original Bourgeois TKL case (flat top) with Dana's favorite, mint green interior.
