Earlier this year Bourgeois introduced The Standard Series, inspired by stylings from the pre-war era. Dana then began to wonder what the Advanced Slope D, a classier, rosewood, long scale version of the Slope D, might look like with Standard Series appointments. After realizing that none of our existing inlays quite worked, a new inlay pattern became the design element around which a re-imagined model emerged. “Rosewood jumbos had a punchier, more focused response than their short-scale, mahogany counterparts.” Dana remarked. “They might not have received as much attention, but they were well-suited for certain styles of high octane hillbilly music. You’ll sometimes see them in pictures of early bluegrass and country bands.” To introduce the new Advanced Slope D Bourgeois are offering a special limited edition of 12 guitars. The Limited Edition features Brazilian Rosewood, Guatemalan Rosewood bridges and fingerboards, and a special inlay in the bridge wings. As always, all of the sunbursts will be applied by Dana himself. Retail $9,470.00 #7 of 12
