Bourgeois OM-42 Black Top – German Spruce & Madagascar Rosewood

Serial Number: 10031
Weight: 4 lbs 12 oz

Every once in a while a builder comes across a PERFECT piece of wood. This is one of those times!

The Bourgeois OM-42 Black Top boasts one of the cleanest looking sets of Madagascar Rosewood we’ve seen in quite a long time. This is a perfectly quartersawn example with perfectly straight grain… Incredibly rare by today’s standards!

Such a perfect set of wood demands to be paired with the very best – and we didn’t skimp on the rest of the lovely ingredients…

German Spruce provides superb projection and response, as well as lays a solid foundation and wide dynamic range. The beautiful and intricate 42 Style inlay appointments perfectly compliment the Black Top top finish, and the whole package is elegantly framed in grained ivoroid.

All together, this creates another Masterpiece from Dana and his talented crew. If you have the ability, we’d HIGHLY recommend coming in our shop to play this amazing guitar for yourself.
