Bourgeois OMC Custom Adirondack Top Madagascar Rosewood Back and Sides Pre-Owned
Bourgeois OMC Madascar Rosewood, Adirondack Spruce, Koa bindings in absolutely wonderful condition. Just the most beautiful looking, playing and sounding guitar in the world. You would be very hard pressed to find Madagascar rosewood with this kind of figure and color anywhere. 1 3/4″ Nut width on this one. The guitar has been modified to have a pickup installed which we would be happy to install a system if requested.
We call this model the “Signature” for a reason; it highlights many individual design elements that are uniquely Dana’s. The DB Signature purfling, unique to Bourgeois featuring 3 alternating woods from dark to light, creating a naturally alluring pattern that compliments the curly koa binding perfectly. The DB backstrip is a similarly unique and elegant pattern. While it can be ordered in any body wood, this combination of design elements was originally conceived to highlight Madagascar Rosewood back & sides, which Dana was an early proponent of as a worthy Brazilian Rosewood substitute.
Here’s what Dana says about Madagascar:
“Madagascar rosewood will probably get you closest to the sound of Brazilian, and at a much lower price. Madagascar has much of the same rich overtone range as Brazilian, as well as a slightly “reverby” quality. ”
This guitar features Adirondack and Madagascar rosewood. The traditional squares & diamonds inlay are carved from bone. The body binding is finely flamed curly koa, gold Waverly tuners with snakewood buttons, bone pins and a premium pickguard
Orchestra Model Cutaway
14 Fret 25.5”
String-to-string, note-to-note balance, rich sound and power to spare.
OM , 14 Fret 25.5” scale: You can think of the Vintage OM as a smaller version of our Dreadnought–or maybe it’s the other way around. Because of its characteristic superb balance, clarity of voice, and sustaining top register, the OM is often thought of as the quintessential fingerstyle guitar. It’s not surprising, though, that more than a few players appreciate these same characteristics not only for flatpicking but also for a variety of other applications. We scallop both sides of the X brace on our OM. This provides the” looseness” required in a smaller guitar to produce a clear, strong bass response, and power and projection that belies its size.
