Bourgeois / Ricky Skaggs Dreadnought Rosewood Spruce / 1997 / Guitar For Sale

Dana Bourgeois is well known worldwide for his superb craftsmanship and also as one of the foremost authorities on the voicing, selection and utilization of fine tonewoods. It's no wonder that these great instruments have become a favorite of many professional country and bluegrass players amongst whom is Ricky Skaggs. This Ricky Skaggs is a signature model, and a very special one we might add, with serial number #001003. It was one of the instruments Bourgeois presented at the 1997 NAMM show, and one of the few featuring spectacular CSAR rosewood back and sides coupled to the Sitka spruce top. Other features include ivoroid bindings, abalone trim and rosette, and a rosewood headstock overlay wit pearl logo and engraved golden Waverly tuners. Besides the wonderful design does this guitar have a great and rich tone. The instrument plays like a dream and is well broken in which makes it very responsive across the entire fretboard. The guitar is still very clean and in excellent condition. Some traces of use on the body and one small ding on the headstock. A K&K Pure Mini pickup has been installed. The guitar travels in a newer Superior hardshell case with TFOA passport.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
