The Aged Tone Series by Bourgeois Guitars.

3_AT_the aged tone series_600

Bourgeois Guitars is proud to announce the Aged Tone Series, designed to capture some of the sound, look, feel and vibe of vintage guitars.

A note from Dana Bourgeois :  

“Aged Tone tops may be the most significant technological advance I’ve seen in decades, but these new guitars are about more than just the tops,” reports Dana Bourgeois. “A treated Adirondack top is, after all, just another tonewood; the thing that matters is what you do with it. To get the vibe I was looking for, I ended up modifying my approach to voicing and developed an entirely new finish. The combined result isn’t a substitute for a great vintage guitar, nor will it make people stop playing new guitars with untreated tops. It’s entirely new, yet partially old, totally different and overwhelmingly musical. I can’t wait to hear what different players do with these guitars!”

Guild Factory Tour!

The Guild workshop, located in New Haven Ct., is a wonderful place. We were fortunate to be hosted there by Guild in May of this year. Premier Guitar has done a nice job putting together a detailed walk-through video of the facility.

Guild Guitars are really a boutique handmade brand- many customers do not realize how handmade and small batch they are. The attention to detail and craftsmanship are impressive. Enjoy the tour!

Dick Boak and Craig Thatcher at AVM!

Our Friend Dick Boak from Martin Guitars gave a wonderful presentation to a packed house of about 60  Martin Guitar lovers on June 21, 2012  at Acoustic Vibes Music. Everyone had to brave the trials of a malfunctioning Air Conditioner , but people were all smiles  listening to Craig Thatcher demonstrate how incredible Martin Guitars are:

Dick was kind enough to sign copies of his Book “Martin Guitar Masterpieces”  after the show  and everyone  had lots of time to try out our great inventory of new and used Martins and Jamming with star performer Craig Thatcher

Dick  Also was kind enough to give a history of customer instruments  they brought in for him to evaluate:

Here is our Highly skilled Luthier Bernie Lezotte  discussing a customer’s  new Martin Purchase at the event

Delta White our able Store Manager was on hand to keep everything in order and hand out bottled water to overheated customers!!

We would like to thank Dick Boak, Craig Thatcher and Jim Marince from Martin  for putting on such a nice event at our shop.  If you are not on our mailing list and would like to be informed of upcoming events like this one drop us a line:  jeff@acousticvibesmusic.com
