I really didn't need another guitar but...
I have always admired Richard Bennett's playing and try on occasion to learn some of his licks, etc. So I was in this guitar store (which I knew better to go into in the first place), and they have this Richard Bennett signature Boucher dreadnaught. Now I normally don't buy anything not made in Nazerath, Pa, but Robin Boucher's crew in Quebec builds a nice guitar I have to say. When I told my bass player that I felt like I was cheating on my D-28 when I played it, she smiled and whispered, I don't think the D-28 realizes it. Anyway I just simply wanted to say that I was shocked at how good the playability and tone was. It's kind of like a D-18 on steroids.
Congratulations ! I am only 8 hours away from there and had never heard of them. I checked out the site and I see what you mean about the sound !
But the price! I enrolled in the JP Cormier lessons and he plays Boucher’s. In fact, there is a JP Cormier signature model. Boomers!! They have a nice tone
Boucher Guitars are on my list off guitar builders I want to check out.
I think this is great that you have discovered Boucher guitars. They are a very good company and their instruments are very well built by luthiers I have been told
I’d like to see them down here in the States more.
There are a lot of things that we don't find in Canada either (woodtone strings for one ) lol
Woodtone strings are really a nice sounding string. I’m very happy with them. I just would like to see them in alight gauge for my smaller bodied guitars
