Bourgeois Slope D Guitar . A Personal Favorite ;o)

Slope DProfessional Series

Slope D

The Bourgeois  Slope D with Dana Bourgeois Snakehead style headstock . Adirondack, Mahogany and Sunburst sprayed by Dana Bourgeois!

Here’s a beautiful burst with optional Herringbone top border. Our slope shouldered dreadnought is only about 1/4″ wider than a standard dreadnought, but what a difference! Voiced for a more open, though less driving, sound than the Country Boy, the Slope D happily accommodates a wide variety of playing styles including country, blues, old timey, pop,
contemporary, and–you name it. And 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!

The Slope D’s interior construction is reasonably similar to the rest of our guitars, but we sure have fun with the exterior. Standard materials include an adirondack spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and ebony fretboard, headstock and bridge, trimmed everywhere (body, fretboard, headstock, and soundhole) with ivoroid binding. To complement the theme, our original Bourgeois snakehead-style peghead is graced with ivoroid-buttoned Waverly tuners.

And did we mention the standard sunburst finish? We treat our sunbursts like just another piece of wood–no two are exactly the same, and that’s the way we like it. Sometimes we are influenced by the colors and textures of the top or back; sometimes we want to de-emphasize a distracting feature in an otherwise outrageous top; sometimes we’re after a vintage vibe. Sometimes we’re just going for a cool burst! Recently Dana has started spraying a wild, vintage style “Cherry Burst”.

But if sunburst isn’t your thing, no problem: Leave it off. We seem to make more variations on the Slope D than any other model. Frequently requested options include natural finish, square headstock, Sitka spruce top, and rosewood, koa or walnut back and sides. With a guitar as versatile as the Slope D you can have it almost any way you like.

Except as noted, all Bourgeois models include the following features:
25.5″ Scale Length, One piece Mahogany Neck, Bone Nut & Saddle, Ebony Fretboard & Bridge, High Gloss Body and Satin Neck Finish, Mother of Pearl Bourgeois headstock inlay, Bourgeois Premium Tortoiseshell style pickguard, Ivoroid Bridge and End Pins, Deluxe Hardshell Case and a Limited Lifetime Warranty. A variety of optional tonewoods, appointments, hardware and finishes are also available.

These guitars are available at one of our fine retailers.
