The Money Shot: Bourgeois L-DBO Presentation

Sometimes a guitar makes your jaw drop, and this limited edition Bourgeois L-DBO Presentation model does exactly that.

Dana Bourgeois has been building guitars for over 40 years now, and he’s put every drop of his craftsmanship into this super-luxurious take on Gibson’s L-00.

BourgeoisBack and sides are made of beautifully figured ziricote, with a striking streak of sapwood up the middle, while the top is aged Adriondack spruce, finished in smoky sunburst.

The eye-catcher is the fingerboard, however -– the ebony is barely visible thanks to the stunning chunks of corian with abalone snowflakes.


With a price five quid shy of £14,000, you’d expect this guitar to be stunning in both tone and playability as well as looks, and you can hear just how good it sounds for yourself – head to to watch our video with The North American Guitar.
