What a great start to an already great instrument!
The first ground up Bouillez build is complete! To start the research and development on the design, we decided to go green! Why not use a wood that is currently destined to become a fire hazard in the mountains or firewood in someone's home or cabin. The very first of its kind in so many ways, the first built Bouillez was test manufactured with blue stained beetle killed pine. (the locals call it beetle kill). Everything on this instrument is built with this uniquely colored wood and it is from right here in Northern Colorado. (Except the fret board and some accent trim to add some contrast). There was only one other that we could find on the planet, (google), that came close. It was a classical style acoustic guitar. However the body was the only part of the guitar that was made from this beautiful wood. In our case, the entire instrument was built from the beetle kill pine. The Bouillez, based on our online search, is the very first built, all pine, steel string acoustic guitar in the world. We intend on breaking as many boundaries as possible with this instrument, so why not start with the first build?
