Inspired by the classic guitars that emerged from the mid-west early in the last century, the Bourgeois L-DBO brings that distinctive sound that old-time and county-blues enthusiasts love into a new era. Utilizing Bourgeois’ Aged Tone torrefaction technology, this guitar combines vintage small-body character and bark with Dana’s signature articulation and response. This incredibly light and vibrant custom build features a striking set of colorful reddish/orange African Padauk back and sides with a torrefied Aged Tone Sitka Spruce top with tobacco sunburst, Guatemalan Rosewood fretboard and bridge with custom Pearl AJ inlays, torrefied Aged Tone Mahogany one-piece neck and Adirondack bracing, Animal Protein (AP) construction and much more.

The result is a one of a kind build. A versatile instrument with tons of personality, perfect for finger-style blues, old-time accompaniment, and comfortable couch-playing.

Padauk

Found only in Africa, Padauk is slightly harder and heavier than Indian Rosewood with a stable, strong tone. Dana Bourgeois says that, “Padauk is the most promising replacement for Rosewood”. Dana and many other builders claim is as a good substitute for Brazilian rosewood. Called a wonderful “musical wood”, it produces a robust and deeper sound, a strong bass, rich with overtones.

Includes deluxe hardshell case and Lifetime Warranty.
