Bouchereau Mistral Acoustic Guitar, Indian Rosewood & German Spruce


Why not spread the cost?


This Bouchereau Mistral model is one of two new guitars to arrive from luthier Loic Bortot.

The Mistral is Loic's OM model and this guitar is made with a gorgeous set of Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, with the sides lined with laminated Spanish Cedar, and a German Spruce top. The Honduran Mahogany neck features a  Carbon reinforced, double acting truss rod, and the Indian Ebony fingerboard is raised over the guitar's top.

Bouchereau's Loïc Bortot gives his thoughts on this Mistral model:

"The Mistral model is basically my version of the OM model, the typical fingerstyle and soloist guitar. It produces a reactive response with complex overtones and harmonics, which allows a very nuanced playing. This guitar is a valuable tool that can feature many ergonomic and aesthetic options. A very versatile instrument that represents the essential pillar of my product lineup. I decided to go with Indian Rosewood for the binding as well, underlined with a subtle maple veneer purfling (as you can see on the back strip)."
