Bourgeois JOMC Koa Deluxe

Adirondak Spruce/Master Grade Koa





The JOM was the first original body style Dana introduced upon the inception of the Bourgeois production shop, and it remains one of Bourgeois' most compelling. Standing for “Jumbo Orchestra Model”, the JOM takes the contours of an OM body and expands it, creating a larger, more expansive sound while maintaining much of the feel and comfort of an OM. An extremely versatile acoustic guitar, the JOM is ready for anything.

This JOMC is a Wood Deluxe, Master Grade Koa Back & Sides.

Bourgeois OM Large Soundhole

Aged Tone Adirondack Spruce





Always curious and ready to experiment, Dana was intrigued by the compelling, open-sound of our Large Soundhole Dreadnoughts. He couldn't help but wonder what the effect would be on our other body styles, first and foremost the OM. The OM Large Soundhole brings an ease of response and openess to the OM build just makes it sound bigger and richer, especially to the player's ear.

Bourgeois OM Vintage

Adirondack Spruce





The Bourgeois OM Vintage, 14 Fret 25.5” scale: 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. Bourgeois scallops 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.

Bourgeois Advanced Slope D

Adirondack Spruce





The Bourgeois Advanced Slope D is the dressed up version of the Slope D. It comes standard with a red "Adirondack" spruce top and the back and sides are from their best Indian rosewood. Features include: The original DB Snakehead headstock with an ebony headstock veneer; the Square headstock is a no charge option. Triple bound ivoroid body, head and neck binding, fancy side purfling and the original Dana Bourgeois backstrip. It has an Ivoroid rosette as well as Dana's version of a Floral fretboard inlay made from mother of pearl shell. The tuners are Waverly Nickel with ivoroid buttons. The Slope D style premium firestripe pickguard is standard. With bone bridge & end pins and the sunburst finish.

The Slope D happily accommodates a wide variety of playing styles including country, blues, old timey, pop, contemporary, and--you name it. If you're a fingerstyle player looking for a dreadnought-sized guitar that can handle fingerpicks or bare fingers as well as flatpicks, the Slope D is definitely your guitar!

Famously hand-sprayed by Dana Bourgeois himself, no two Bourgeois sunbursts are exactly the same, and that's the way we like it.

Bourgeois OM Country Boy

Adirondack Spruce/Mahogany




The Bourgeois OM Country Boy, Spruce and Mahogany, perfect. 

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.

The Country Boy has Bourgeois' classic appointments such as ebony fretboard and bridge, wooden rosette, tortoiseshell binding and nickel Waverly tuners.

In addition to selecting only the finest quartersawn and matched South American mahogany backs and sides.

To maintain a vintage look, Bourgeois selects only the highest grade rosewood. Rounding out the visual package, the Vintage Dreadnought features herringbone top trim, ivoroid body binding, slotted squares and diamonds inlay, premium tortoiseshell pickguard and nickel Waverly tuners.

Bourgeois DB Signature OM

Italian Spruce/Madagascar Rosewood





This OM is called the "Signature" for a reason; it highlights many individual design elements that are uniquely Dana's. The DB Signature herringbone is a beautiful 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.

Bourgeois Guitars 'The Soloist' 30th Commemorative LE

German Bear Claw Spruce

#8 of 12






30 years ago, Dana Bourgeois and Eric Schoenberg collaborated to develop and introduce the first cutaway OM. At the time, Schoenberg was dreaming of the perfect fingerstyle guitar, incorporating all of the best elements of vintage OMs and a variety modern appointments including the addition of a Selmer-style cutaway. After Bourgeois' initial attempts at building such a hybrid resulted in the loss of several Brazilian rosewood sides, a rounder, softer cutaway was adopted, and a classic was born. Since the early 1990s, Bourgeois and Schoenberg have continued to produce different interpretations of The Soloist under their separate logos. In that time, the “soft-cutaway” originally introduced on The Soloist has now become a familiar sight on a variety of guitar models from many different manufacturers. In fact, it is now hard to believe that a cutaway flattop was once a rare thing!


 To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Soloist, we’ve partnered once again with Eric Schoenberg to produce a limited run of 12 instruments. Each instrument will bear a commemorative label signed by both Eric and Dana, just as the originals did. For this series we’ve paired two very special tonewoods; Premium Cocobolo and Bearclaw German Spruce. Both are the finest examples of their species and rare in this grade! The elegant “Soloist” triangle inlay not only adorns the heel as it has traditionally, but it has also been added to both sides of the pyramid bridge as a finishing touch.

Bourgeois L-DBO/S

Aged Tone Adirondack Spruce/Sunburst





Dana Bourgeois' 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 their love for vintage guitar tone and design with modern innovation and playability. This foundation can be heard and seen clearly in their 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. This version features a hand-applied dark sunburst finish
