Madagascar rosewood is quickly gaining popularity among players and luthiers alike for its rich, complex tone. Possessing an orchestral complexity on par with Brazilian, but with a stronger fundamental presence and sweetness to the sustain, this rosewood is excellent on any body size. But on a dreadnought crafted by the capable Bourgeois team, it might just meet its peak potential. The current set-up of this 42-style dreadnought makes it a versatile workhorse, as capable of tackling drop-tuned fingerstyle as it is at classic flatpicking. The "Aged Tone" treatment of the Adirondack spruce top adds even more warmth and nuance, and animal protein glue construction further maximizes the organic tone. The 42-style appointments are, of course, stunning, from the MOP headstock, fretboard and bridge inlays to the abalone purfling. This pre-owned model is in excellent condition, and includes original hardshell case.
