It's here! The Vintage D by Bourgeois Guitars! Heartbreaker Guitars is an authorized dealer of all Bourgeois instruments! Listen to what Dana Bourgeois says about the Vintage D - "The best thing about our Vintage Dreadnought is that you don't have to imagine what it might sound like if you custom ordered it with an Adirondack spruce top. Ours is the only standard herringbone - style dreadnought that can make this claim." - Dana Bourgeois Adirondack spruce, also known as Eastern Red Spruce, was the legendary top wood used on most pre-war American-made guitars. Properly cut, Adirondack is much stiffer than Sitka and Engelmann spruce, both along and across the grain. This allows us to make thinner, lighter tops, resulting in lightning-quick response and power to spare. Most guitar grade "Adirondack" spruce these days comes from our own backyard--the state of Maine, which still has large stands of original and second growth softwood forests. To maintain a vintage look, we select only the highest grade of East Indian rosewood, perfectly matched and quartered with tight, straight grain and darker-than-average color. (Though Brazilian rosewood isn't a standard feature, it is our most popular custom upgrade). Rounding out the visual package, the Vintage Dreadnought features herringbone top trim, ivoroid body binding, slotted squares and diamonds inlay, premium tortoiseshell pickguard and nickel Waverly tuners. If the best thing about our Vintage Dreadnought is the Adirondack top that comes standard, the next best feature must be the price. Take a moment to compare appointments. We don't think you'll find a better value in an Adirondack topped, traditionally - styled dreadnought!
