List price for the guitar is $2,999. Our package price includes a custom FJ-branded Calton Case. The guitar will be ready to ship late fall 2021.
As we embark upon our next 15 years of publishing, the Fretboard Journal is proud to announce the launch of FJ Exclusives. We’ll be partnering with some of our favorite brands and builders to offer you exclusive access to FJ-only collaborations and one-off instruments. As with everything in our magazine’s pages, everything we feature will be remarkable and have a story worth telling behind them.
Though we have no desire to be a guitar dealer, we do love connecting lucky readers with products we know you’ll love. Proceeds from FJ Exclusives will also help our independent media company expand in new and exciting ways.
For our first Exclusive, we’re proud to offer a rare prototype OM-style from the new Bourgeois-Eastman partnership. This Bourgeois Touchstone OM is a Sitka spruce and Indian rosewood instrument, designed and voiced by Dana Bourgeois’ Maine team. For the lucky buyer of this instrument, we’re also including a custom Calton Case. Safety first.
This instrument will be available for purchase on our site at noon (PT), August 16th, 2021. If you miss out on this instrument, look for more FJ Exclusives over the course of 2021.
