Bouchereau Guitars are built by luthier Loic Bortot in Quebec City. The Mistral model is his version of the modern OM measuring 15.5" across the lower bout.
We love luthiers with unique features and this guitar has plenty of them! It is fully decked out in gorgeous appointments such as his signature interlace rosette with segments of Ziricote, bordered by radial Zebrawood purfling. The entire top is also bound with a radial Zebrawood purfling that is just stunning. He also has a distinct 2 tone headstock design and a unique carved bridge.
The tone is very unique, not something we have heard in other guitars. It is extremely overtone rich, giving it a very full and rich sound which suits fingerstyle well.
