Probably the nicest and most impressive Bourgeois we've had, at least in the Dreadnought shape, and the label is signed by Bryan Sutton. It's not just the Adirondack top that's torrefied (what Dana Bourgeois calls "aged tone") it's all the wood parts that make up the body, even including the finish! The Brazilian is impressive in color and grain, with a terrific book-matched back, in fact all the wood used in this guitar is clearly from Dana's top shelf (easy to understand why that would be true when you remember that Bryan Sutton is probably the endorsement artist that helped Bourgeois gain such high status in the bluegrass guitar field). There's a little bit of fret wear, but this guitar didn't suffer any jam session collisions and there are only a few light shirt button marks to the finish on the back. No cracks, obviously, and no changes or repairs. If you want to both inspire and reward your flatpicking, this Dreadnought will do it!
