(NEW) A very exciting new model from the good folks at Beard Guitars. This is # 79. Called simply the “JD-BB”, It is the Jerry Douglas Signature Model “Black Beard” square neck resophonic guitar. The black finish is translucent and is a subtle but exceptionally beautiful finish.
Master luthier Paul Beard and resonator guitar virtuoso Jerry Douglas have collaborated on the design of this great new guitar. It is both visually stunning and yet very simple at the same time. And of course the sound is typically powerful. The body is a modified Beard E-style of solid mahogany with open body chamber and baffle, all powered by a sand cast spider bridge & Beard spun cone, for that now classic open-body resonator guitar sound. Other features include square profile mahogany neck, translucent black finish, Douglas series custom coverplate, dual open soundhole rings, fabulous red Bubinga fretboard with dot inlay & “Jerry Douglas” signature inlay, 25″ scale, chrome plated hardware and hardshell case.
Check out this video of Jerry Douglas jamming with Derek Trucks. It’s worth a listen even if you are not a square-neck player!
This JD-BB guitar is performance ready with an installed Fishman “Nashville” bridge pickup for the Fishman Douglas Aura.
