Beard Guitars


For the player looking for the classic style and sound of the 1930s resonators. The Beard R Model has a traditional body shape and open soundwell construction. It features an 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 Model also features Paul Beard's triple spun Legend Cone and an Original #14 spider. Includes hardshell case.
