Boucher Guitars Officially Launches the JP Cormier Signature Model (SM-JP-56)
After 18 months brainstorming about what should be the ‘’JP Cormier’’ signature model, Boucher finally concluded that it should be based on a 000-12FTB size guitar.
JP loves playing his 000-12FTB but also mentioned that it was difficult to reach upper frets.
It was the perfect opportunity to create a unique 000-12FTB featuring an extremely convenient cutaway. A guitar with deep low-mid range tone, typical of our 000s, with significantly improved access to upper frets.
In resume; OOO-12FTB CUTAWAY with East Indian rosewood back and sides, torrefied AAAA Adirondack top, custom slotted headstock design, abalone rosette, koa body bindings, ‘’B’’ inlayed at the 12th fret and a flamboyant new pickguard!
Boucher is extremely proud to introduce this magnificent instrument in collaboration with JP. It’s really one of the most impressive guitars produced by Boucher Guitars to this day.
Boucher did not only create a Signature model; Boucher created a halo guitar at a very competitive price.
