Our BG-52 is crafted and engineered to meet the very high requirements of bluegrass guitarists performing live or in the recording studio. Our guitars offer a large presence on stage due to the method of construction and choices of woods. The BG-52 is as “present” as all other bluegrass instruments whether you are strumming or soloing. Robin Boucher personally selects Adirondack red spruce for the bracing and soundboard in order to give the instrument its special bluegrass sonority. Rich low ends, driving mids and beefy highs describe the sound spectrum of our Bluegrass Goose. This guitar is incredibly easy to play due to the elevated soundboard radius and the unique profile of the neck which will perfectly match the hand of the guitarist.
Dreaming of such a guitar? We have it. LEFT-HANDED VERSION AVAILABLE AT NO EXTRA CHARGE
MATURITY AND UNIQUE PERSONALITY
Maturity is a great quality, particularly when it comes to acoustic guitars. In 2010, Boucher Guitars innovated by developing with the collaboration of The University Laval of Quebec, a unique roasting process that accelerates the aging of its Adirondack red spruce soundboards by eliminating lignin, but without altering its essential components of the wood, cellulose and hemicellulose. This industry first resulted in the launch of our famous Gold Touch® top option at NAMM 2011. Optional on our guitars from the Studio Goose and Bluegrass Goose Series, the GOLD PACK® also includes gold plated machine head tuners. For those who want to afford “sound maturity” without the long wait.
