This blacked-out beauty is an L-DBO Custom AT from Bourgeois Guitars in Lewiston, Maine USA.
Made up out of Mahogany for the back and sides with a Torrefied Adirondack Spruce top, it absolutely nails the '30s small body acoustic tonality that became such a staple of the roots and blues movements that followed.
That said, this 12-Fret Custom version has a heightened sense of versatility, with the neck joint pushing the bridge and soundhole further into the body and imparting sweetness and depth to the tone of the guitar.
The Madagascar Rosewood topped Mahogany neck is an absolute treat to play and makes for an effortless experience in coaxing out the range of tones on offer from this lively little instrument.
The guitar comes in a Custom Fitted Hardcase.
