About This Listing

Here is the Dreadnaught version of Bourgeois Guitars' collaboration with Eastman Guitars - an impeccably built, great sounding guitar! It sports a beautifully silked Sitka top and a nice set of straight grained Indian Rosewood for the back and sides.

This Dreadnaught is the first offering of Bourgeois Guitars' 'Touchstone Series', combining the world's finest hand crafted soundboard voicing, performed by the Bourgeois crew in Lewiston Maine, with the quality and experience (and cost savings) of the Eastman Guitars luthiers in Beijing China.

In our view, this guitar is a winner! It is perfectly balanced in tone, with a well defined but clean low end, with crisp highs. It is remarkably easy to play with easy fretting and bar chording up and down the fretboard. Just a really nice guitar at a great price - now many more players will be able to afford a Bourgeois quality guitar!  
Comes with a high quality, hard shell, arch topped, plush lined case as pictured.

From the Bourgeois Guitars web site:
"Drawing on Dana’s near half-century of lutherie experience, the Touchstone Series is designed to deliver legendary Bourgeois tone and build quality to a wider range of players than ever before.

Our all-new Touchstone Series guitars feature Old-Growth Alaskan Sitka Spruce tops and Adirondack Spruce braces harvested from deep in our own backyard, selected and hand-voiced in Lewiston, Maine by Dana Bourgeois and his team.

Using our renown system of hand voicing, all Touchstone Series soundboards are optimized for tonal excellence by a team of skilled luthiers right here in Maine.

The back and sides of the Touchstone Vintage/TS are made with carefully selected Indian Rosewood and assembled by the talented craftsmen at Eastman Music. Each specialized step is performed by hand to bring out the beauty and tonal complexity of your D or OM."
