Bourgeois Guitars are defining the future of vintage tone, combining old-world hand-voicing techniques with modern innovations in design and materials. Built in a ca. 1850s mill in the industrial town of Lewiston, Maine, master luthier Dana Bourgeois and his small team of highly skilled craftsman produce some of the finest steel-string instruments available today. Known for tonal excellence, meticulous craftsmanship and top-notch materials, they are played by six-string luminaries such as Bryan Sutton, Ricky Skaggs, Sean Watkins, Della Mae, the late Doc Watson and countless professional and nonprofessional enthusiasts. Bourgeois guitars have had a prominent role in the American steel-string guitar renaissance for more than two decades, helping shape acoustic music’s most recent rise in popularity.
With a range of guitars that starts with the diminutive Piccolo Parlor, includes 0, 00, and 000-sizes, moves through mid-size Jumbo Orchestra and Mini Jumbo models before arriving at round-shoulder and square-shoulder dreadnoughts, and finally a full sized jumbo model, Bourgeois offers a steel-string flattop for every player. And combined with the nearly limitless possibilities offered by Bourgeois’ stash of first-grade tonewoods, as well as numerous options for appointments and custom features, Bourgeois guitars please the eye as well as delighting the ear.
