Bluegrass Goose Series Dreadnought Rosewood - (Factory-installed) K&K Pure Mini™ Pickup - Gold Pack® - Master Grade Pack®

BG-252-GM K&K

Using the most sought-after tonewood on Earth, this guitar is made with Brazilian rosewood back and sides, and reinforces the belief that rosewood, especially from the Brazilian rain forest has a sound that more than justifies the premium price paid for this ultra rare species of wood!

The BG-252 is crafted and engineered to meet the very high requirements of all 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-252 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.

Please Note: This guitar is available for viewing by appointment, and is only available for local pickup. Please call 519-344-7740 for any inquiries.

LEFT-HANDED VERSION AVAILABLE AT NO EXTRA CHARGE


This guitar is equipped with the Boucher Gold Pack®

Here are the details on the Gold Pack®

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.

This guitar is also equipped with the Boucher Master Grade Pack®

Here are the details on the Master Grade Pack®
The world of guitar making proclaims that at least 70% of the sound properties of a high-end acoustic guitar have a connection with its soundboard and bracing. Boucher Guitars supports this view. The quality of the materials used in the making of a soundboard is, therefore, crucial. The Adirondack red spruce is, to everyone, the Holy Grail of wood species to consider when designing soundboards. However, its great rarity limits its use among manufacturers. Imagine the impact of a “Master Grade” Adirondack red spruce soundboard on the sonority of your guitar! And that is not all! All Boucher guitars with the MASTER GRADE PACK® include a rosette ornamented with abalone inlay and Koa body bindings. This is to support the quality assurance and extreme rarity of a Master Grade Adirondack soundboard.

We thought of you and of everything!
