Bourgeois OM Short Scale DB Signature
We call this model 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.
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 Italian Spruce 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.
