Pantheon Guitars announced the addition of the Bourgeois Petite Jumbo. With its "small", 16" jumbo outline, the Petite Jumbo represents a significant development in the Bourgeois line. Variations of this body style have traditionally graced a variety of guitars including smaller archtops, rhythm workhorses for accompaniment of singers like the Everly Brothers, and more recently, fingerstyle guitars for virtuoso solo performers. Specifically configured to suit the latter, the Bourgeois PJ combines European Spruce and Madagascar Rosewood to produce a full, rich tonal palette with a medium-wide 1/34" nut and a powerful 25.5" scale.
The Petite Jumbo features an X-braced back to enhance lower register articulation. In the tradition of fine, handmade fingerstyle guitars, the Petite Jumbo is bound in darker woods. Rosewood on the body. The ebony headstock and un-inlaid ebony fretboard are bound in dark rosewood and subtly highlighted by a single line of white purfling for an clean, understated look. Further appointments include bone pins, Bourgeois style backstrip and Gold Waverly tuners. Options are available including Brazilian rosewood, Figured Mahogany and Adirondack spruce.
List price: $4595.
