Artisan Profile | Bourgeois/Pantheon Guitars
In an 1840s mill in Maine, Dana Bourgeois and eight fellow craftsmen work in a shop cutting, sanding, and gluing spruce and rosewood. It’s loving work from which eight acoustic guitars are made each week. Their handcrafted instruments are treasured by serious guitarists around the world, including professional musicians Ricky Skaggs, Steve Earle, Marshall Crenshaw, Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek, and the Dixie Chicks. Pictured here is the Bourgeois DB jumbo cutaway guitar ($3,995). Made in Lewiston, Maine, by Bourgeois/Pantheon Guitars. Call or visit Web site for dealers. 207-786-0385; pantheonguitars.com
