This Bourgeois Orchestra Model guitar plays well and loud… It has a good response, even with the wildest playing. It litteraly sings with a lot of natural chorus and sustain especially on low frequencies. Yet, the mid frequencies are good. The tone is well balanced which is important if you want to use it to record. It is perfect to play energetic fingerstyle or ballads (though a lot of guitarists prefer cedar wood that gives a warmer tone).
This guitar features are:
- Sitka spruce top.
- Indian rosewood body.
- Ebony fingerboard.
- Nickel Waverly tuners.
- Ivoroid binding on the body and the neck.
- The shape/volume ratio
- The woods used are good though they are not the most beautiful.

- The tone is either soft or hard as a rock, just as you want if to be.
- The comfort of the guitar, and especially the neck.
- The tuners are a bit hard and have a short course of action.
- Very sensitive to humidity
- No cutaway (but there is an OMC model)
