Master Luthier Dana Bourgeois has created the new Generation D model that has everything in build and sound quality or playability that any of his world renown instruments would have except one thing– a top price—because the one is now is the most affordably priced model in his extensive model line-up.

Golden Age Guitars is one of a select number of dealers to have this exclusive and limited run guitar.

This is a dreadnaught satin finish guitar with an aged tone sitka spruce torrefied top. That means the wood has been heated to remove the moisture content to give that vintage sound. We, at Golden Age,  love the torrified top option. It gives the guitar warmer sound with more depth and detail. And the Gen D allows players to get this option without breaking the piggy bank as it’s a somewhat pricey option. It also features mahogany back and sides, an ebony fretboard and bridge, with Schaller 18:1 vintage style “butterbean” tuners.

By the way, it’s installed with an unobtrusive L.R. Baggs “Lyric” pickup. You just can’t buy this kind of guitar, with the sound quality and comfort in the Bourgeois line at this price point. It’s such a great buy and investment that we want you to come on in and play it first before we tell you the price. Oh, and it does come with a very nice deluxe 5-ply hard shell case to keep what should become a classic guitar well protected.

A Guitar Stand For Father's Day

Our furniture grade solid wood guitar stands, made for us in the USA, represent the finest quality guitar stands made today. Each one is handcrafted and hand rubbed with only a natural oil finish that perfectly complements and showcases your finest acoustic or electric guitar. Even instruments finished in nitro lacquer. They come with a USA made String Swing cradle—the finest available that displays your guitar while protecting any finish. Simply a work of art. We haven’t seen or tried a better stand.

Available woods included mahogany (most popular), maple, cherry, red oak, black satin, padauk or purple heart. There are three price levels: $99.9, $149.99, or $199.99 depending on wood selection. We have samples on display in the shop. Plus, each stand comes with a free bottle of lemon oil to keep your stand oiled, shiny and looking new. Our manufacturer, by the way, provides a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so a full refund is available. We don’t know of anyone who has returned a stand. In fact, the opposite is true—they just keep ordering more. Call us and you can stop by and pick one up at our store or we will have one shipped to your door.

Waterloo Guitars Land At Golden Age

Golden Age Guitars is now an authorized dealer of Waterloo Guitars, made in Austin, Texas, by Collings Guitars, one of the top acoustic guitar makers in the industry.

“If you want to replicate the vintage flat picker or finger style sound of the 1940s, this is the perfect instrument,” says GAG owner John Reynolds. “We are extremely proud to be the first New Jersey dealer to carry these extraordinary instruments.”

The first one has arrived this week at the store and what a stunner. Its the WL-JK (Jumbo King ), the largest model in the Waterloo line, with a sunburst,  large neck, and slope shoulder body. “This guitar has a big sound and in the day was powerful enough for professional radio work,” according to John.

The Waterloo line is available in both 14 fret (6 models) and 12 fret (5 models) versions. Craftsmen are hard at work in the Austin factory making other models for the store. You can also choose the model of you choice and we will be glad to order one for you. Stop by any day, Tuesday thru Saturday and give this vintage sound classic a try. Take a read of what Acoustic Guitar magazine says about this guitar. BTW, the WL-JK sold within two days. We now have a WL-K 12 Fret and a WL-14 Mahogany in stock. Come over and play ’em!

Golden Age now offers in-house repairs by the magnificent Pete Becker!

We repair all stringed instruments. Pete’s hours at GA are Wed. through Saturday, but please call first to check his availability before driving over.
