The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Discontinued Beard Deco Phonic Sidecar Acoustic Sunburst


Instrument Categories: , ,

Here’s a treat – a new Paul Beard Deco Phonic Sidecar acoustic, hearkening back to the classic models of the 1930s heard on many blues ragtime and country recordings.

The Beard Deco Phonic Sidecar is built on the standard Beard R body, with an Engelmann Spruce top, Finnish Birch Laminate back and sides, Mahogany neck and Morado bridge and fingerboard. Morado is a non-CITES listed substitute for Brazilian Rosewood, sometimes known as Pau Ferro. The finish is a very thin Tobacco Sunburst, with very little grain filler allowing the finish to sink into the wood pores.

The Beard Deco Phonic Sidecar is very well built, with a full, rich sound, ideal for many fingerstyle genres.

This guitar is supplied with its original Beard hard shell case.

More From The Builder On The Beard Deco Phonic Sidecar:

“The Beard Deco Phonic Sidecar is the flagship model of the Deco line. The classic and compact Beard “R” body shape is comfortable and appealing. The solid spruce top with mahogany Aero bracing provides a rich, balanced sound with slightly pronounced midrange response. The Sidecar is great for fingerstyle and blues. An incredibly subtle soft V-shape mahogany neck and 14 fret range provide plenty of comfort and access. As always, all Deco guitars are handmade in small batches in Hagerstown Maryland.”
