Bourgeois 00/12 “The Coupe” AT Italian Spruce/ FiguredSapele

$8,550.00

About This Listing

This custom Bourgeois is built with a torrified Italian Spruce top and Sapele back and sides. This set of Sapele is almost magical in appearance! With tonal properties similar to Mahogany, Sapele is a unique alternative tonewood with gorgeous quilted figure. Wrapped in Ivoroid body binding and DB Signature herringbone purfling, this custom blends the aesthetics of Bourgeois’ Vintage/HS and DB Signature models. To top it all off, this 00-12 “The Coupe” Custom features the complete Aged Tone package. This includes AT Adirondack Spruce bracing, AT Finish, and Animal Protein Glue.

Why wait for vintage tone when you can have it now?

Basic Specs: short scale at 25″; 12 frets to the body; nut width 1-3/4″; 2-5/16″ string spacing at the bridge.

What happens when you put a 12 fret neck on a 14 fret body? The nut becomes easier to reach and the bridge finds itself located in widest section of the lower bout. The practical result? When the body is small to begin with, playability approaches effortlessness. And no matter how small the body, bottom end, quickness of response and “openness” all receive a boost whenever a top is driven from its most mechanically efficient location. Add an optional cutaway and you’ll never sacrifice access to the upper register.
