❌SOLD❌ Beard R Model Squareneck Resophonic Sunburst, 2009


Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Beard R Model Squareneck resophonic guitar is built in the USA to evoke the classic single cone resonator guitars of the 1930s.

Paul Beard builds many of the best resophonic guitars available, and works closely with top artists like Jerry Douglas and Mike Auldridge.

This Beard R Model Squareneck was built during 2009 at the Beard shop in scenic Hagerstown, Maryland, is in very good condition and is strictly acoustic – no pickups have been installed.

This model features solid Mahogany for the neck and open-soundwell body, and the binding is Curly Maple. The fingerboard is Ebony, with Mother of Pearl for the position markers; the bridge is Maple with an Ebony cap and that covers the woods used.

Tuning gears are by Gotoh and are very smooth. The cone and spider are the real beating heart of this type of instrument, and here, Beard uses a Legend cone with a #14 spider. A gloss sunburst finish completes the package.

The Beard R Model is also available in round neck, but is most often shipped as a Squareneck version for use by country and bluegrass players.

The original Beard hard shell case is included.

Here’s the builder on the Beard R Model:

” For the player looking for the classic style and sound of the 1930s resonators. The Beard R Models (vintage and standard) have a traditional body shape and open soundwell construction. The Beard R Model features all solid wood body, mahogany neck, curly maple binding and Beards classic burst finish. Perfect for traditional playing the R Model’s smaller body produces a clear sustained high range balanced with a punchy growling bass end. The R Models feature Paul Beard’s triple spun Legend™ Cone and an Original #14™ spider. “
