(NEW) When nothing less but the best will do. The Beard Model E in gorgeous flamed maple.
This one with Paul’s BLACK ICE translucent finish! Master luthier Paul Beard just shipped us this visually stunning and roaring Resophonic square neck guitar. The sound is typically “Beard” powerful.
This premier squareneck resonator guitar features solid maple back, sides, neck & top, “E” body style (wider & deeper, with slightly arched back), dual screenholes, gloss finish, flame maple binding on top, back, fretboard, ebony fretboard w/ modified slotted diamond inlay, 25″ scale, solid peghead, Waverly tuners, Beard coverplate, traditional tailpiece, chrome hardware, all powered by a top mounted spun Beard cone & spider bridge w/ hard maple inserts on a fully open body cavity, no soundwell, for a big, big, big sound. Includes TKL hard shell case.
We had him go the extra mile on this one and install the “JD” pickup as most pros usually end up retro-fitting this model with the pickup eventually. “JD” for those who don’t recognize the reference (although we find it hard to believe that anyone reading a square-neck resophonic listing would not recognize the “JD” moniker immediately) indicates that the pickup is the one developed by Paul in conjunction with the current King of the dobro: Jerry Douglas.
