(NEW) – We purchased this one of a kind custom Beard guitar at the NAMM Show. This is the ART IV guitar – fourth in a series by Paul Beard and Rick Parks. Rick Parks is a professional artist and composite/sketch consultant for the FBI. Lately Rick has turned his talents toward drawing images on collectible instruments for the likes of National, Huss & Dalton, Bear Creek Hawaiian Guitars, and the Beard Resonators. His art guitars invlove drawing on the raw wood with pastel pencil and then applying a protective top coat of finish. This guitar features a civil war theme with Generals Lee and Grant depicted on the front with special North and South symbols in the coverplate. Aside from being a stunning work of art, this guitar features master grade materials (burled walnut) and gold plating and the very best of everything. Tonally, this guitar is a knockout!! While we assume this guitar will spend some time in a glass display case, we suggest you buy it with the intention of PLAYING it because it sounds amazing!! Got a civil war buff/guitar player on your Holiday list? The perfect gift.
