Generation

Discover the Next Generation of Bourgeois Sound.

Uncompromised acoustic sound, with added plug-in capability.

We designed the Generation around what really matters: premium acoustic sound. Built to the same structural and acoustic specifications as every other Bourgeois guitar, the Generation features a Torrefied Sitka Spruce soundboard, premium Mahogany back and sides and an L.R. Baggs Lyric acoustic pickup. This combination delivers a tone comparable to guitars twice its price, with the added versatility of onboard electronics.

“Some players plug in regularly, some plug in occasionally, and others not at all. To accommodate the widest variety of player preference we’ve designed an out-of sight, out-of mind pickup installation that facilitates the plugged-in option when you need it and only when you need it. And the best part: Plugged in, it sounds recognizably and refreshingly like its acoustic self.”
