SOLD!!! Beard Deco Phonic Model 27 Round Neck Single Cone Sunburst


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Beard Deco Phonic Model 27 round neck single cone spider guitar, is a new series from Beard, aiming to re-create the aesthetics of the 1920’s when resophonic guitars were invented.

The Beard Deco Phonic Model 27 is the entry point for the Deco Phonic line, and like the other models is available in both round and square neck versions. Construction reflects Beard’s consistently high quality, and the materials are selected to be fully CITES compliant. The body is a Finnish Birch laminate, the neck is Mahogany, and the fingerboard is Morado, also known as Pau Ferro or sometimes Bolivian Rosewood. For hardware, the tuners are vintage style strip tuners with creme plastic buttons, a traditional nickel plated tailpiece and fan pattern coverplate, a Beard #14 Spider and triple-spun cone.

Fretwork and assembly are top notch. The Dark Vintage Sunburst is an open-pore finish, very light and unrestrictive. It looks really good and has a great feel.

The original Beard hard shell, arched top case by TKL is included.

Here are some quotes from the Beard site about the Deco Phonic Model 27 and others:

From Jerry Douglas:
“The word “Deco” conjures images of a time when design was at its peak. A period in architectural history unmatched by any other that put forth such remarkable images as the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, or the Hollywood Bowl.  Astonishing icons that still bring marvel and integrity.

The resonator guitar was born during this time and echoed Art Deco elements.

Paul Beard’s newest line of resonator guitars honors that tradition in appearance and tonal quality. Beneath the historic exterior lie Paul’s own structural advances.  By representing the original sound with the advantage of stability, it’s only right that these guitars should bear the name “Deco”.”. . . Jerry Douglas”

“This new series of resonator guitars from Paul Beard reflect the stylings of the Art Deco period in which the resonator guitar was originally developed. Applying innovative modern construction techniques to create a vintage vibe and sound is what gives these new instruments their appeal!”
