About This Listing

This Bourgeois OM Custom Anniversary might be the finest guitar in our shop! It's Italian Spruce top is incredibly light weight and resonant, and paired with this gorgeous and RARE figured (quilted) Sapele back and side set produces a loud but focused voice with great balance and clarity. And isn't this the prettiest thing you have ever seen! Truly a work of luthier art that is an absolute joy to play!

This is the only guitar that Dana Bourgeois built with this particular set of Sapele. It is a one of a kind build using that stimulated the imagination of the folks at Bourgeois, to quote: "When we acquired this stunning set of quilted Sapele, we knew it was destined for a special guitar." Special is exactly what you're looking at here!

The 'Anniversary' is a recreation of a Limited Edition Bourgeois originally built in 2015, commemorating Dana's 40 year lutherie career, but this is the only Bourgeois OM built using this fine piece of quilted tone wood. 

It's a long scale guitar with a nut width of 1-3/4" and string spacing of 2-5/16" at the saddle. The neck is satin finished for smooth playability. Note the Waverly Gold tuners with Ebony buttons. Comes with a high quality TKL hard shell, arch topped plush lined case.

Many special custom features are to be enjoyed on this guitar, including the 'Arrowhead' backstop, the Arrows inlay on the headstock, and the Abalone Diamonds and Arrows fretboard inlay. Ziricote is used for the body binding, head veneer, end piece inlay and heel cap. The bridge and fretboard are also Ziricote. Notice also the Ziricote binding with Black/Maple purfling on the headstock, as well as the beautiful fingerboard binding using Ziricote with Black/Cream purfling.

Just, Wow! We are proud to be offering this one of a kind Bourgeois masterpiece for sale here at The Fretted Buffalo. Our thanks to our good friend Doug Yeomans for the demonstration video!
