We are still in awe of the magnificent American Vintage guitars that inspired generations of players and helped produce diverse traditions of iconic American music. The Heirloom Series is our tip of the hat to the guitars that inspired our careers in lutherie and ignited our never-ending pursuit of the essence of yesteryear’s sound and vibe.
Dana’s influence in the world of American Lutherie rests on a lifetime of innovation. The Legacy Series is a collection of models showcasing his stylistic sensibilities, often fused with traditional design. Take pride in owning not just a Bourgeois, but a guitar reimagined by Dana himself.
Why wait for vintage tone? Each model in the Aged Tone series includes our Aged Tone Adirondack Spruce top, Aged Tone Adirondack Spruce bracing, animal protein glue construction, and proprietary Aged Tone finish to deliver a "broken-in" vintage tone out of the box.
Every so often Dana finds inspiration in a unique piece of wood, a novel design feature, or even an old one. Whenever we build a one-off guitar exactly the way he wants it, we call it a Luthier’s Choice Custom. Inquire for details.
