Default **SOLD** 2020 Bourgeois AT D-Vintage, Adi/EIR, 1935 Burst, Semi-gloss finish

**SOLD** 2020 Bourgeois Aged Tone D-Vintage (Ser# 8773) - Adi/EIR, 1935 Burst, Semi-gloss -- **SOLD**

A friend of mine has a guitar for sale that I'm interested in purchasing. In order to keep the number of instruments I own under control, I am offering for sale this killer 2020 Bourgeois Aged Tone D-Vintage in special semi-gloss finish. Be advised that if his guitar sells before I can move this, the Ad comes down immediately and we all go home, no regrets either way.

This guitar was originally custom spec'd and sold by the Music Emporium in the Spring of 2020, but later traded into TNAG Nashville by the original owner where I grabbed it. The guitar is in like-new 9.8 out of 10 condition, with no marks to speak of outside of light pickguard scratches (I'm a pinky planter) and the tiniest of fretwear under the B string, first 3 frets. There is also what appears to be a finish "run" in the upper left corner of the upper bout (see last photo) that you can only see under light at an angle, which may have occurred during the curing process while the guitar dried after it was sprayed. It is perfectly smooth and otherwise unnoticeable straight on. The TKL OHSC is in excellent condition except for a torn strip of leather that covers the top part of the handle loop (see photos 1, 9, and 10). Handle is completely secure.

The Bourgeois semi-gloss finish is smooth and resembles a Lowden finish in appearance and feel. While it does not mark easily, this finish also cannot be polished. For those who are OCD about swirls and faint micro-scratches under certain light and certain angles, this may not be the guitar for you!

Key Specs:
  • Torrefied (Aged Tone) Adi over EIR
  • Medium soft-v neck with 1 3/4 nut and 2 5/16" string spacing
  • Ebony fingerboard + slotted ebony bridge with all-solid pins
  • 1935 Burst + Special semi-gloss finish
  • Fully adjustable truss rod (with included wrench)
  • Nickel Waverly Relic tuners
  • Spot on 6/64", 4/64" setup with 0.005" relief; strung with Pearse 710NM

**SOLD**

My sound sample + Carl Miner's demo below, along with photos. Happy to chat by phone to any and all interested parties. Thanks for looking!

Where were you last year! Picked up my 2019 Bourgeois Aged Tone Vintage D (no sunburst) in March 2020. Has that same rich tone, so responsive and alive. Someone will score, paid over $5,000 new.

I may have missed it. What type of bracing does this model get? Is it the single side scallop or double?

Thank you friends, for all the kind words! This is a killer guitar.

@Jesse — this has the single side scalloping.
