Bourgeois D Generation R, Indian Rosewood & Aged Tone Sitka Spruce


Sold Make an enquiry


“Some players plug in regularly, some plug in occasionally, and others not at all. To accommodate the widest variety of player preference we’ve designed an out-of sight, out-of mind pickup installation that facilitates the plugged-in option when you need it and only when you need it. And the best part: Plugged in, it sounds recognizably and refreshingly like its acoustic self.” - Dana Bourgeois

With their Generation series, Bourgeois have crafted a reliable workhorse guitar with the gigging musician in mind. With a gorgeous Aged Tone (torrefied) Sitka spruce top and a set of Indian rosewood for the back and sides, these standardized specs put you right in the mindset of a truly inspiring vintage dreadnought, with warm mids and a wealth of excitable activity in the lows, and crystal clear separation in the upper frequencies. The playability is, as one would expect from a Bourgeois, absolutely stellar, with full-bodied character to each note all the way through the guitars range. A truly inspiring yet straightforward classic, outfitted with an LR Baggs pickup.
