One of the most respected builders in the acoustic guitar world, master luthier Dana Bourgeois has built an international reputation in a career spanning nearly three decades. Creator of the celebrated Schoenberg OM series, Dana has designed innovative prototypes for clients as diverse as Gibson Montana and Paul Reed Smith. Now at his workshop in his native Maine, Bourgeois has returned to crafting exquisite hand built creations for top artists like Ricky Skaggs, Martin Simpson, Ry Cooder, Norman Blake, Vince Gill, David Lindley, Marshall Crenshaw, Jerry Douglas, Elliott Easton, James Taylor and many more.
Dana introduced the A-350 in 1996, an all-carved acoustic cutaway jazz guitar constructed with the ultimate tonewoods available. This example sports breathtaking AAA tiger flame maple in back, sides and neck, and a tap-tuned, X-braced, solid Sitka spruce top. with fit and finish executed with a watchmaker's precision.
This guitar is in immaculate showroom condition, with all original hardware, finish and case. With an elegant gentle D profile neck, the guitar has smooth low action over a fresh high precision setup. At barely 5lb 2oz the guitar is phenomenally lightweight and well balanced, with a voice that is truly thriling: clear and evenly balanced throughout the register, with a brilliance rarely heard in contemporary acoustic archtops.
Rarely seen on the vintage market, this instrument is a modern classic from a builder deeply immersed in the finest of traditional design. It has been some years now since Dana has had the time to devote to archtop production, making these peerless creations highly sought after by discriminating players. Exquisitely crafted, and a matchless blend of visual design and sonic performance. One only, call now.
