Scott Nygaard & his Country Boy Deluxe.

Scott Nygaard


Grammy winning Scott Nygaard is one of the most inventive and original guitarists in the bluegrass/acoustic music scene. He plays a Bourgeois Custom Country Boy Deluxe. It is the first one that we ever built with Cocobolo back and sides.

From 1992 to 1997, Scott was the guitarist with Tim O’Brien’s band, the O’Boys, and he has performed and/or recorded with such acoustic music stars as Joan Baez, Chris Thile, Darol Anger, Jerry Douglas, Laurie Lewis, Anonymous 4, Matt Flinner, Bill Evans, Sharon Gilchrist, and many others, receiving numerous Grammy nominations for his stellar sidemanship.

Former editior of Acoustic Guitar magazine, Scott has written hundreds of articles on music, musicians, guitars and guitarists. He recently co-founded Peghead Nation an online roots music instruction site.

Scott is one of our favorite players. We are so pleased that he loves his Bourgeois.


Here he is with his band Crow Molly, with Joe Walsh (mandolin) and Lauren Rioux (violin).
