2013 Bourgeois Slope D ‘Banjo Killer’

Designed after Bryan Sutton’s original Bourgeois Slope D, which was nicknamed “The Banjo Killer,” this slope-shouldered Dreadnought has a loud and focused voice, strong bass, and incredible presence. Voiced for volume and response, the guitar is designed to offer a player plenty of sound without the need to overplay. It rewards an accurate right hand with some of the best Bourgeois flatpicking tone one might hope to find.

Bear-claw figured Sitka spruce top, highly figured Honduran mahogany back and sides, Ziricote headplate, fingerboard and bridge, ivoroid bindings, bone nut and saddle, and nickel Waverly tuners. Round neck carve with 1-23/32” nut width and 25.5” scale.

This example is in exceptional condition, perfectly set-up, and simply gorgeous.

There’s no rosewood used in its build, and can ship internationally without CITES documentation.

With original hardshell case
