Default To me, this is what a dread should sound like...

Simply gorgeous.

Fantastic sounding Bourgeois! A Vintage D is one I’d love to add to my collection, but I can’t justify another guitar with the two amazing ones I already am fortunate to own.

Yeah Man!!!! That sure does sound good......No, that's better than good.


This is a perfect example why I love Dreads. Thanks for posting

OP, this video should have a caution warning.

( Warning watching this video may result in extreme GAS)

Bourgeois has to be my favorite shop in the Martin camp, hands down... However in this particular case you have to give some serious credit to that player, every single demo he has done for TNAG has been excellent!!! He's a super tasteful flatpicker and does a great job letting each guitar "sing" when necessary.

Agreed. He is one fantastic and classy player. Never overdoes anything, but as you intimated, just lets the guitar show its best.

You beat me to it The clips he did for Collings sound excellent as well.

Yeah, that is a great sound, but then Carl Miner is such a terrific player. It gets hard to separate the guitar from the outstanding player sometimes.

Wow, that is just gorgeous!

It appears that Carl Miner has done a few videos for North American Guitar, not just the Bourgeois dread that is listed in the OP.

He sounds really good in all of them...















and on and on... These all sound terrific!

This is the first video I ever heard Carl Miner in, playing a Gibson AJ. It really has stuck with me!

Thank you so much Hairpuller, for posting this video...AMAZING TONE. The kind of recorded tone I have been dreaming of all my life.
And thank you GlennWilliow for posting all those videos of Carl Miner. I had not heard of him before, even though I have seen a ton of videos by the North American Guitar. He is magnificent. I watched each and every one of those videos you posted. I was totally mesmerized.
Many Top notch engineers say this in regards to getting great sound:
First Choose a great Player. Then Choose the right instrument. Then choose a microphone.
This is the perfect example of a Great player, on so many great guitars. Each time he sounds perfect. The Player is definitely the most import part of a great recording. Next of course a great guitar, of which all the ones Carl Played were outstanding.
And for the microphone? What Carl Was using in these videos? SCHOEPS! I have listened to a ton of microphones, and Schoeps is one of the best, if not the best microphones for capturing the true tonal structure of a good guitar. Other great mics are Gefells, Neumanns, Senheisers & AKG. All are great, but for myself, Schoeps records the body of a Dreadnought the way I hear it.

I was thinking the exact same thing before even reading your post. This guy could probably make a lot of instruments sound stellar. Not to take away from this guitar in the vid...u know what I mean...

Pretty amazing on both fronts...the guy and the guitar...

That is fantastic. You put a great guitar in the hands of an equally skilled player and magic happens.

All of the clips I will listen to more than once.
