The Bourgeois archtops were handcrafted by Dana Bourgeois, and as with all Bourgeois guitars, were built to his high, exacting standards.  This guitar was made with the finest woods, the spruce top showing an abundance of medullary rays and the maple neck and back being highly flamed.  The fretboard, bridge, pickguard, and tailpiece are all made of ebony.  The binding is tortoise patterned giving a very elegant appearance, especially with the white purfling strip outlining the guitar, including the fretboard, headstock, and tailpiece.  I'm not sure what the official name for the bursts color, but it is very similar to what other makers have often called almond burst.  

 

The parallel braced spruce top yields a stunningly warm, even tone with a beautiful top end.  There is full bass response, warm mids, and almost harp like high notes.  The tone is more typical of an x-braced guitar, but easily with more power than most.  The playability is excellent and the frets show only very minimal wear.  The action is set to optimize both acoustic tone and playability, but could be adjusted up or down as the player prefers.
