Bourgeois D Country Boy/TS Touchstone Series

HAND-VOICED TONE, ALWAYS WITHIN ARMS REACH

Introducing the Bourgeois Touchstone series, a collection of hand-voiced guitars designed by Dana Bourgeois. These guitars are crafted with Bourgeois’ signature attention-to-detail, bringing his legendary tone and craftsmanship to more players than ever before.

Drawing on his half-century of experience as a luthier, Dana and his team carefully select each old-growth Alaskan Sitka Spruce soundboard by hand before bracing it with Adirondack Spruce harvested from deep in northern forests of Maine.

THE ART OF HAND-VOICING

The magic of the Touchstone Series comes from Dana’s renown system of hand-voicing. Over the last 50 years he has refined this old-world technique and is now recognized worldwide as a foremost authority on guitar-top voicing.

Dana’s method of tap-tuning optimizes the latent musicality hidden within the fibers of the world’s finest tonewoods.  On any given day you will find Dana and his team carefully sculpting and listening to every top, back, and brace—working to maximize the sonic potential of each of his instruments.

The Touchstone series is a collaboration between Bourgeois Guitars and Eastman Music Company. After Touchstone tops are approved by Dana, they are vacuum sealed and shipped to Eastman’s workshop where a select group of Eastman’s finest luthiers, carefully trained in Bourgeois’ tonal philosophy and construction methodology integrates the tops into Dana’s designs, bringing each guitar to life.

From the rich Indian Rosewood and herringbone stylings of the Vintage, to the classic woody Mahogany and simplicity of the Country Boy, the Touchstone Series makes these two iconic models more approachable than ever before.

The newest addition to the Bourgeois Touchstone family is based on one of the most successful models ever to come out of the Lewiston workshop—the Country Boy.  This vintage-inspired workhorse is meticulously handcrafted with the specific aim of providing musicians best-in-class attention to detail, tone, and playability.  Resonating with warmth and clarity, the all-new Touchstone Country Boy offers an impressive dynamic range, perfect for aspiring and professional players alike.

Crafted from some of the finest tonewoods in its class, the Touchstone Country Boy features a one-piece Honduran Mahogany neck, Honduran Mahogany back and sides, and a hand-voiced, old-growth Sitka Spruce top.

Whether you’re a seasoned professional musician or just setting out on your road to the main stage, the Touchstone Country Boy is finally making the immersive, boutique playing experiences once reserved for the few, available to the many.
