It was 40 years (and 7,000 guitars) ago that Dana Bourgeois built his first guitar in his college dorm room. To celebrate this milestone, Bourgeois Guitars has introduced the 40th Anniversary Limited Edition.

At the recent Fretboard Summit gathering, Della Mae guitarist and songwriter Courtney Hartman and flatpicking ace Bryan Sutton had a chance to play the OM and dreadnought versions of the Bourgeois 40th Anniversary guitar, as seen in this video.

A small, exclusive run of 15 Guitars will be produced, with the following special features, hand-selected by Dana himself:

  • Bourgeois_40th_LE-65.JPGMaster Grade Aged Tone Adirondack Top & Braces
