In 2007 we introduced a Short 25"
scale version of our popular 25.5" scale Slope D. With all the warm, sweet, full tone and relaxed
playability you'd expect from a vintage short scale instrument but
with the balance and note to note clarity found on all Bourgeois
Standard materials include an adirondack spruce
top, mahogany back and sides, and ebony fretboard, headstock and
bridge, trimmed everywhere (body, fretboard, headstock and rosette) with ivoroid binding. To complement the theme, our
original Bourgeois snakehead-style peghead is graced with ivoroid-buttoned
Beginning in 2012, the Slope D comes standard with a natural top and
our sunburst, famously sprayed by Dana Bourgeois himself, is
available as a custom option. We treat our sunbursts
like just another piece of wood--no two are exactly the same, and that's the way we like it. Sometimes we are influenced by the colors
and textures of the top or back; sometimes we want to de-emphasize a
distracting feature in an otherwise outrageous top; sometimes we're after a vintage vibe. Sometimes we're just going for a cool burst!
We seem to make more variations on the Slope D than any other model. Frequently
requested options include natural finish, square headstock, Sitka
and rosewood, koa or walnut back and sides. With a guitar as versatile as
the Slope D you can have it almost any way you like.
Except as noted, all
Bourgeois models include the following features:
25.5" Scale Length, One piece Mahogany Neck, Bone Nut
& Saddle, Ebony Fretboard & Bridge, High Gloss Body and
Satin Neck Finish, Mother of Pearl Bourgeois headstock inlay,
Bourgeois Premium Tortoiseshell style pickguard, Ivoroid Bridge and
End Pins, Deluxe Hardshell Case and a Limited Lifetime
Warranty. A variety of optional tonewoods, appointments,
hardware and finishes are also available.
