Decades ago Dana noticed that during the first few years of a large guitar’s life, guitar tops “relax” until stretched to their limit. Later in the guitars life, the top will “harden” as a result of permanent distortion. During relaxation, bass is boosted and high frequency response dies off. This often is beyond desirable limits and balance is not restored for years. In the 1990’s, Dana modified the traditional Dreadnought bracing system. Bourgeois began scalloping only the bass side of the X brace and lightening it’s tone bars. The result successfully counteracted a Dreadnought’s tendency to “unbalance”, and over the years has attracted scores of Dreadnought players. Among the ranks are Bryan Sutton, Josh Williams, Andy Falco, Courtney Hartman and many others.
