Summary: Bourgeois Guitars is pleased to offer a series of instruments showcasing Dana’s love of fine tonewoods and his personal sense of visual style. The Luthier’s Choice Custom series (LCC) is a collection of guitars individually designed by Dana, featuring extraordinary tonewoods in one-of-a-kind custom packages. By definition and design, these guitars cannot be custom ordered, nor can they be reserved in advance of building. Dana is proud to have built thousands of guitars in his life to the specifications of others, but this is his chance to build exactly what he wants! For 2012, Dana designed and built five for the series. Now is your chance to own one of these beautiful and truly unique instruments.

Playability: Plays as good as it looks! Gentle V shape neck is very comfortable with a matte finish that slides easily under the hand.
