By adopting design elements from the earliest years of fine guitar construction, Dana Bourgeois has developed the 12-Fret Slothead DS-260, based in part on the Bourgeois Slope D model. Each piece is built in Pantheon Guitar's Lewiston, Maine shop by Dana Bourgeois and his team of seven craftsmen. The DS-260 is based on the Bourgeois model used on stage and on recordings by Dan Tyminski of Union Station.

The DS-260 embodies the simple elegance and grace players have come to expect from vintage versions. The tone is enhanced by a red spruce "adirondack" top and Indian Rosewood sides and back. The 12 Fret design puts the sound hole closer to the waist of the guitar and the bridge farther down on the lower bout. Placement of the bridge at this wider location on the lower bout provides a loose, open quality to the sound, according to the company. The Ebony Belly bridge is able to drive the top from the widest point on the body. The 1 3/4" neck has an Ebony board, Squares & Diamond inlay and Side Mount Waverly tuners. With Herringbone & Ivoroid body binding and a matching herringbone backstrip and rosette. Options are available including Brazilian, Honduran rosewood and Madagascar rosewood.

List price: $3695
