Just Arrived: New Bourgeois at TNAG Nashville

It’s always a great day when we receive a multitude of brand new instruments from Dana Bourgeois and his team out in Lewiston, Maine, USA, but this time there’s a few crucial additions to our already sizeable list of reasons to be excited. 

These gorgeous new guitars are the first from Dana to land in our Nashville showroom, and in the mix there’s a couple of brand new models for us, namely a pair of absolutely jaw dropping 00 ‘Coupe’ models alongside some of our favourite guitars we’ve seen from the Bourgeois team. 

The other reason for the mounting excitement pending the arrival of these fine instruments was in knowing that once they arrived they would be launched into the hands of our good friend and truly inspiring player Carl Miner, to be put through their paces and showcased in full splendour. 

A few have already been snapped up, but here’s a rundown of the instruments that are still available;
