Das sagt Dana: Bourgeois Guitars is proud introduce the 2018 Vintage Deluxe Limited Edition

 

An exclusive five piece collection featuring Madagascar Rosewood, Aged Tone Adirondack Spruce and added emphasis on pre-war details.

 

These guitars represent a pinnacle of innovation within the vintage inspired cannon and include a Deluxe Limited Edition hard shell case.

“Throughout my career I’ve focused on the sound of pre-war guitars, and after years of development the gap continues to close. We thought it would be fun to combine these efforts with a show of reverence for the appearance of our 1930’s inspirations. The Vintage Deluxe Limited Edition is designed to elicit the sound, look and feel of ‘oldies but goodies’, with understated contemporary approachability and a pinch of attitude.” -Dana Bourgeois

 

Die Nummer 1 dieser 5 steht jetzt im Gitarren Studio Neustadt. Nach dem ersten Anspielen kann ich bestätigen, dass Dana seine selbst gestellte Vorgabe erfüllt hat  -  ein wunderbares Instrument! 

 

Noch eine Anmerkung: Alle Tops sind "Master grade Adirondack Spruce" und selektiert von Dana persönlich.

Das sagt Dana: All Mahogany guitars have a long history in the flattop world. First introduced as inexpensive student guitars in the same shapes as their spruce-topped brethren, it wasn't long before folks began to enjoy the signature tone that a hardwood topped guitar can bring. Our mahogany topped guitars have the advantage of being individually voiced with Dana's tap-tuning process. This really brings to the fold a response not often found in these dark-topped beauties. By tuning the tops, we are able to get more overtones and response than you'd usually find, while simultaneously retaining the very direct, sugar-sweet tone that the very best vintage 'hog tops are known for. This is no lesser cousin to a spruce-topped guitar; All Mahogany guitars stand proudly on their own!

Bei der Abstimmung mit BOURGEOIS habe ich ein paar Kleinigkeiten am Basismodell ändern lassen - kein Pickguard (liegt im Koffer), dafür aber ein besoners schönes Top, "klassische" Abstimmung des Tops für den typischen Mahagoni-Ton - medium Setup für eine leichte Bespielbarkeit. Das Ergebnis: WYSIWYG

The Jumbo OM, or JOM, is an original body style developed by Dana in the late 80's, in response to players' requests for a mid-sized guitar with the balance and clarity of an OM but with a bigger presence. The idea was simple: Start with the OM outline, enlarge it a bit, play around with the curves and deepen the sides. The result is a wonderfully versatile guitar; larger than an OM, smaller than a Dreadnought, capable of handling almost any playing style you can imagine, and equally capable of operating in solo or ensemble situations. 

Bei der Diskussion über die Specs der JOM bat ich um eine Gitarre mit möglichst wenig "Lametta" aber bestmöglichen Tonhölzern  - Dana hat mir daraufhin empfohlen,  für die Decke und für das Bracing  "Aged Tone Adirondack"  zu wählen.   Mit dem  "Aged Tone" Upgradebekommt man den Ton einer lang eingespielten Gitarre. Bei diesem Verfahren wird die Masse der Decke und des Bracinngs reduziert - dies führt dann zu einer feineren und schnelleren Ansprache der gesamten Deckenkonstruktion.

Balance, power and full, piano-like sound; our richest-sounding guitar.

We think of the OMS as the 12 fret version of the OM, as opposed to the other way around. It boasts all the tonal properties of our OM, with the added power and fullness of a 12 Fret. The 12 Fret design places the soundhole closer to the waist of the guitar and locates the bridge at the widest part of the lower bout, where it can most efficiently drive the top. This throwback design allows maximum power with minimum playing effort, while affording a loose, open quality to the sound

A no-nonsense, no frills, worldclass guitar just as ready for the stage as it is the couch. As usual with Dana, the little touches go a long way and reflect some serious thought on his part as far as what the average player is going to appreciate. That satin finish keeps both weight and cost down, the decision to torrefy the Sitka lends a great look and even better sound to the instrument, and the overall appointments and pre-installed L.R. Baggs Lyric just make this one a no-brainer. 

Die "Generation OM" ist das jüngste Modell von DANA BOURGEOIS. Sehr gelungen - Top Sound, top Bespielbarkeit, klassische Optik - die Gene von Dana´s Gitarren ist unverkennbar. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist schwer zu toppen.

Diese FULL MAHAGONI OO hat den etwas größeren Korpus als die Single O - der Ton ist daher etwas voller als bei der "Keinen", dafür ist die Single O etwas schneller in der Ansprache.

Preis:   7.190 Euro

 

Das sagt Dana: My passion for acoustic guitars was fostered by those coveted instruments built in the pre-war era. Bourgeois Guitars' mission as a company has always been to merge our love for vintage guitar tone and design with modern innovation and playability. This foundation can be heard and seen clearly in our newest guitar, the Bourgeois L-DBO. 

Inspired by the classic guitars that emerged from the mid-west early in the last century, the Bourgeois L-DBO brings that distinctive sound that old-time and county-blues enthusiasts love into a new era. Utilizing Bourgeois' Aged Tone torrefaction technology, this guitar combines vintage small-body character and bark with Dana's signature articulation and response. The result is a versatile instrument with tons of personality, perfect for finger-style blues, old-time accompaniment, and comfortable couch-playing. 

Auf der Grundlage dieser Philosophie bat ich Dana, die Hölzer für die erste L-DBO, die er für das Gitarren Studio Neustadt baut, auszuwählen. Das Ergebnis:  perfect for finger-style blues, old-time accompaniment, and comfortable couch-playing.
