Arrow SOLD! Bourgeois Vintage D Brazilian/Adirondack (1st and only price reduction)

For sale is a late 2013 Bourgeois Vintage D in Brazilian and Adirondack spruce that I bought new from Acoustic Vibes in May of 2014. This guitar actually has a 4 piece Brazilian back but, like most Bourgeois guitars with 4 piece back (i.e. almost all of their Madagascar guitars), you can't tell. The guitar is in near mint/excellent plus condition. It has one tiny chip in the finish in the treble side lower bout binding that is nearly impossible to see and you honestly wouldn't know it was there if I didn't tell you (see last photo. I had to run my finger along the binding to even find it). Besides that there is nothing beyond normal aging/playing...a few finish swirls but no dings, etc. Frets are in great shape with little wear. It has been kept in a humidified and smoke free environment. This is truly a guitar that I never thought that I would part with but I've been having shoulder pain when playing dread style guitars for a while now so I'm reluctantly letting go of a few. Asking price is SOLD. Comes with the original TKL case. I've sold a number of guitars on this forum and reverb and I'm happy to provide references if requested.

Listed on reverb here: https://reverb.com/item/34807366-bou...ntent=34807366

Trades: I am open to trade offers for this guitar but only for smaller bodied guitars (OM, GC, SJ, CJ, etc.) from boutique builders (Goodall, Bourgeois, Froggy Bottom, etc.). I am not interested in Taylor, Martin, Collings, etc. I will also be looking for equivalent tone woods and have no interest in mahogany or East Indian rosewood. Picky I know but don't want to waste anyone's time.

Spec sheet is provided but briefly:

Model: Vintage D (14 frets to body)
Serial #: 6533 (completed 11/18/2013)
Back/Sides: Brazilian Rosewood
Top: Adirondack Spruce
Nut: 1 23/32"
Saddle: 2.2"
Nut/Saddle: Bone
Pins: Fossilized walrus ivory

Please feel free to shoot questions my way and thanks for looking!

Gorgeous guitar. Where are the other two seams in the back? You're right, very unnoticeable.

They are in the darker segments. It took me and my local repair guy about 10 minutes to find them. You would never know it was a 4 piece back in the label didn't say it.

A friendly bump. This has to be the most beautiful dread by any maker that I've ever seen on this forum. A lifetime guitar for someone.....me, I wish!
