Inspired by the classic guitars that emerged from the Midwest early in the last century, the Bourgeois L-DBO brings that distinctive sound that old-time and county-blues enthusiasts love into a new era. This guitar combines vintage small-body character and bark with Dana's signature articulation and response, in a warm, woody all-mahogany package. The result is a versatile instrument with tons of personality, perfect for fingerstyle blues, old-time accompaniment, and comfortable couch-playing. The unusual ziricote fretboard and bridge really pop against the dark stain of the body, which is further offset by the ivoroid binding and pickguard. Another knock-out guitar from Dana and his team, with undeniable vintage appeal!
