Build quality that you would expect from Bourgeois.  Immaculately constructed! 

Enjoy the tonal character of a smaller bodied guitar with more volume and push with this fine instrument.

Adirondack spruce top and fiddle back maple balance out nicely with the lighter bracing that is part of this guitar's secret formula.  Built the old way with hide glue.

The guitar plays perfectly.  No issues whatsoever.  Custom ordered with these appointments.  Original case included.

Outfitted with an Anthem Lyric pickup system.

From the builder's website:

The L-DBO is larger than a 00, slightly smaller than the 000/OM, and designed with a 25” scale neck. It’s relatively narrow upper bout imparts a distinctive wedge-shaped appearance, setting it apart from the 0/00/000 “gene pool”. As significantly, the L-DBO conceals two secret weapons: An unusually large soundhole for its size, and narrow, 1/4” top bracing which combine to produce unusual power and presence in such a small package.
