Bourgeois Guitars is pleased to offer a series of instruments showcasing Dana's love of fine tonewoods and his personal
sense of visual style. The Luthier's Choice Custom series (LCC) is a
collection of guitars individually
designed by Dana, featuring extraordinary tonewoods in one-of-a-kind
Some LCC guitars will display highly figured tonewoods, while other
woods are selected for classic appearance. All will sound
extraordinary. A few LCC's may be elaborately adorned. Others may
emphasize simplicity and elegance. However packaged, Luthier's
Choice Custom guitars represent Dana's finest creative efforts,
tonal and visual, refined over a thirty-year career.

"Though I've been building for quite some time now, I'd like to
think my best guitars are still in front of me. The Luthier's Choice
Custom series offers an opportunity to expand my creative horizons,
unencumbered by everyday constraints. I'm looking forward to making
a few really spectacular guitars, not to mention having a lot of
Purpleheart wood used on Luthier's Choice no. 4.
At the Bourgeois shop, Dana ensures quality of execution
by maintaining close hands-on involvement in the creation of every
guitar. From selection of all materials to personally voicing
each instrument. With the LLC he will add his gift for the
perfect balance between art and playability.
Luthier's Choice Custom series guitars are offered from time to time
as material availability, demand, and inspiration allow. A
description of each new LCC guitar is posted on the Bourgeois website as it is built.
