Beard Mahogany R Though not the most 'famous' of Paul Beard's squareneck creations, the Beard Model R is the benchmark model that the others evolved from. Unlike the large body E-body models -- the Mike Aldridge and Blackbeard models -- the Beard Model R is based on the historical Dobro pre-war body size. The smaller internal displacement of the R model lends itself to players with a light to medium attack. The tone is ultra rich, balanced and sensitive to subtleties not easily attained on the big body E series Beard guitars which require a more aggressive right hand attack to really come to life.

Paul Beard further developed the Model R by using a massively thick and dense, mahogany top fitted to his highly developed internal "open soundwell" design. Topping it all off is the unique Beard spun cone and custom arched spider.

This 2011 Beard Model R Mahogany is in excellent condition and has been fitted with a Schatten pickup system.

" The Beard R Model has taken the most desirable features of the Beard Vintage model guitar, including the open soundwell construction, and combined them with exclusive improvements in materials, construction, finishes, appointments and technical innovations. This creates a traditional instrument that has a perfectly balanced, full-bodied sound. These vibrant instruments are made of select solid tone woods that yield a clean, sweet tone. They produce a clear, crisp treble and a full, rich, warm bass, equally well suited for contemporary and traditional playing styles! "
