All Mahogany guitars have a long history in the flattop world. First introduced as inexpensive student guitars in the same shapes as their spruce-topped brethren, it wasn't long before folks began to enjoy the signature tone that a hardwood topped guitar can bring. Bourgeois' mahogany topped guitars have the advantage of being individually voiced with Dana's tap-tuning process. This really brings to the fold a response not often found in these dark-topped beauties. Tuning the tops produces more overtones and response than you'd usually find, while simultaneously retaining the very direct, sugar-sweet tone that the very best vintage 'hog tops are known for. This is no lesser cousin to a spruce-topped guitar; All Mahogany guitars stand proudly on their own.
