Canada-based luthier Loïc Bortot, aka Bouchereau Guitars. A graduate of the National Lutherie School of Quebec City in 2014, where he won the Excellence Award for his Moonchild model, Loïc has since established Bouchereau Guitars to offer four main models - Moonchild, Mistral, Marly & Maelstrom.

Named after his mother's maiden name, Bouchereau guitars feature a fantastic mix of traditional and modern appointments.

“Bouchereau guitars are at the crossroads between tradition and modernity”

Working with The North American Guitar gave me access to a wide community of guitar lovers, spread all across the world. Their great online listing system and proactive promotional work, is a real blessing for me as a builder.
