About This Listing

Our first delivery from Guitares Boucher in Quebec arrived this week, and ... wow! Power and clarity are the first words that come to mind! This guitar easily qualifies as a 'banjo killer' - it will stand out in a bluegrass combo or any other band setting! 

Boucher is a master guitar builder, and has mastered the craft of torrifaction, the 'baking' of soundboards to replicate the effect of decades of playing and natural aging that dries out the wood and produces the vintage sound that attracts so many players to guitars like the highly collectible (and costly) pre war Martins. Now you can get that sound without the price and the high maintenance of a decades-old guitar!

This model BG-52-G - a Bluegrass Goose series Boucher - features that torrified Adirondack top and a sweet set of straight grained Indian Rosewood for the back and side set. The binding and end wedge are Maple, making for a nice contrast with the rosewood. The purfling, rosette and end wedge trim are classic Herringbone. Ebony is used where it should be on a classic dreadnaught!

Other specs: long scale at 25-1/2"; 1-3/4" nut width. 2.2" string spacing at the bridge. The sound hole is on the large side at 4-1/8", helping to produce that volume and power that Bluegrass players look for. Body depth at the end pin is 5". The nut and saddle are bone. Bridge pins are 4mm Black Tusq. Gotoh Gold open machine head tuners. Two way truss rod. The one piece neck is solid South American Mahogany with a smooth satin finish.

We are just blown away by our first shipment of Boucher guitars - both are wonderful Dreadnaughts!  It also needs to be said that this guitar is a terrific value, given it's performance and the expanding prices and shrinking availability of new build 'boutique' guitars on todays market. 

Be sure to check out the demonstration video by our good friend Doug Yeomans and you'll see what we mean!
