They should call this one "the Banjo Killer"! It's really loud with great cut and punch. The mids are strong as you'd expect from a Mahogany bodied guitar. Mahogany has a quick velocity of sound, relatively lightness of weight, and noticeable midrange overtone attenuation. As a result, mahogany guitars have their own sound. Warm, dry, woody, not particularly complex, but direct, lively, and famously easy to record.
Mahogany guitars are often looked at as poor cousins of rosewood guitars, but we politely disagree. This guitar is dressed dressing in classic appointments such as ebony fretboard and bridge, wooden rosette, tortoiseshell binding and nickel Waverly tuners. Bourgeois considers it worthy of the same diamond volute that they use on the back of their Vintage Dreadnought peghead. In addition to selecting only the finest quartersawn and matched South American mahogany backs and sides, the Country Boy Dreadnought is appointed with an Adirondack spruce top.
The Country Boy Deluxe is essentially a dressed up Country Boy and was originally designed for Sean Watkins and features, premium figured Mahogany and premium Adirondack Spruce as well as gold plated open back Waverly tuners with "butterbean" buttons, wood bindings and a custom Tor-tis pickguard.
