It was 40 years (and 7,000 guitars) ago that Dana Bourgeois built his first guitar in his college dorm room. To celebrate this milestone, Bourgeois Guitars has introduced the 40th Anniversary Limited Edition.

At the recent Fretboard Summit gathering, Della Mae guitarist and songwriter Courtney Hartman and flatpicking ace Bryan Sutton had a chance to play the OM and dreadnought versions of the Bourgeois 40th Anniversary guitar, as seen in this video.

A small, exclusive run of 15 Guitars will be produced, with the following special features, hand-selected by Dana himself:

  • Master Grade Aged Tone Adirondack Top & Braces
  • Exclusive Special Reserve Quilted Mahogany Back & Sides
  • Snakewood Bridge, Fingerboard, Tail Wedge and Headstock Overlay
  • Special Inlay: Bone “Diamonds & Arrows” with headstock, heel & bridge wing inlays
  • Aged Tone Finish and Animal Protein Glue Construction
  • Ziricote bindings with black and white purfling
  • Abalone Rosette
  • Bone Bridge Pins
  • Waverly Tuners with Snakewood Buttons
  • “40th Anniversary” decal on the back of the headstock
  • Available as either a Dreadnought (1 23/32″ nut) or an OM (1 3/4″ nut)
  • List Price $9,165
