This lovely Bougeois is definitely one of the finest flattops we've yet to have at Golden Age. I'd put it up against any of the big boys: Traugott, Olson, any of 'em. The tone is simply magnificent with a smooth warmth matched and a low end without any mushiness (technical term). You can hear all the complexity present in the low end (this is a criteria I've long used in judging a great flattop sound) and no hint of edginess on the treble end. And, as expected, it plays like you would expect a Bourgeois to play. Which is to say effortlessly. The appointment are also top notch: diamond and square markers in bone, multicolor h-bone back strip and rosette with an unusually white Adirondack Spruce top. To die for!
