Bourgeois Soloist 30th Commemorative Guitar

Brendan Smyth
Get ready folks, this is gonna be another Dana Bourgeois Masterpiece:  The Bourgeois Soloist 30th Commemorative Guitar on at Heartbreaker Guitars!  There will only be 12 built and most will be sold before completion.  Heartbreaker Guitars has commissioned 3 of the Commemorative Soloists so call us to reserve yours now!  Check out all the info: 30 years ago, Dana Bourgeois and Eric Schoenberg introduced the modern cutaway OM with the Schoenberg Soloist. At the time, Schoenberg had been dreaming of what a cutaway would be like one of his favorite vintage OMs. With Dana’s expertise, together they made that dream a reality. A partnership with Martin was arranged and the first-ever production cutaway OMs were built under the “Schoenberg” brand, with Dana executing the critical build details in his shop (wood selection, top construction, hand-voicing etc..) while Martin provided the final assembly and finish. For the complete story of the Soloist, please visit David Gansz’s informative history at Dana’s original “soft-cutaway” designed for the Soloist has now become a familiar sight as an option available on guitars from many different manufacturers. In fact, it is now hard to believe that a cutaway flattop was ever a rare thing! To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Soloist, we’ve partnered with Eric Schoenberg to produce a limited run of 12 instruments. Each instrument will bear a commemorative label signed by both Eric and Dana, just as the originals did. For this special series we’ve paired two very special tonewoods; Premium Cocobolo with beautiful figure and superb tonal response for the back and sides, and Dana’s selected German spruce with striking “diamond” bear-claw figure for the top. Both are the finest examples of their species and rare in this grade! The elegant “Soloist” triangle inlay not only adorns the heel as it has traditionally, but it has also been added to both sides of the pyramid bridge as a finishing touch. • Premium German Diamond Bearclaw Spruce Top • Premium Cocobolo Top • DB Backstrip (developed for the original Soloist) • Ziricote Body Binding and head plate • Soloist Purfling (7 layers, as on the original) • Bone Square and Diamond inlay • Fossil Mammoth Pins • Cutaway • Soloist triangle inlay in heel and bridge • Retail $8,820.
