Before I go any further, I want to offer a huge shoutout to James and Dana at @Bourgeois Guitars and Matt Chulka at @eddiesguitarsstl. They helped me create this guitar and make it among the most stunning instruments I have actually played. BIG thank you!
From the drawing board to the completed item, this guitar has actually exceeded my expectations at every turn. Now, let’s go into the specifications so you understand what I’m speaking about.
The Bourgeois OMSC has a torrefied Italian Spruce top, which is extremely responsive and gives it a classic look. There’s an ebony bridge with bone bridge pins and saddle. There’s also the DB Herringbone signature inlay that looks classic and natural on this guitar.
On the back, there’s master grade cocobolo … and it is a visual phenomenon to take a look at. For those of you who do not know, cocobolo is comparable to rosewood in its tonal quality, however a little heavier on the overtones than rosewood.
The Bourgeois OMSC has sustain for days, which I can practically completely associate to the cocobolo back and binding.
As far as ergonomics go, this guitar has a 12-fret neck however also includes a cutaway. This offer you access to the upper register without having to do any hand gymnastics. Interestingly enough, the bridge is positioned lower on the lower bout. This results in opening up the entire top for severe resonance.
I absolutely like this guitar and had lots of enjoyable creating it with Matt, James, and Dana. If you have any questions or have an interest in creating your own guitar, make certain to take a look at Bourgeois Guitars.
