“There are very few body sizes that appeal to such a broad cross section of our customers as this JOM from Dana Bourgeois! When you’re holding this instrument, it doesn’t feel substantially larger than an Orchestra Model, yet it packs a punch not unlike a modern dreadnought…but with better trebles! The tight waist allows the box to sit lower on your lap, giving the impression of a smaller guitar…but that 15 5/8″ lower bout and the 4 3/4” deep box really generates a powerful presence in the low end!
Of course if body size was the only determining factor, everyone would be building guitars that sound this amazing! The real secret to the fact that Bourgeois guitars are consistently more responsive than most other brands is the fact that Dana has “the touch”. He has that intuitive grasp of his craft that really does give him an edge … from the selection of raw billets to fine tuning the tap tones of a superb Sitka top, Dana somehow elicits an immediacy of response and that gratifying overall tonality that has made him popular with so many of the elite pro musicians world wide!!!”
