Description

Here’s a bombshell from Mario Beauregard that’s aged in and opened up handsomely. This beautiful SJ was built in 1999 with brick-red Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and an amber-hued German Spruce top, Ebony bindings, and Maple appointments. 16 1/2” across the lower bout adds growl and projection to an already powerful voice, and the overall tone strikes a fine balance between richness and precision. Overtones enrich the voice but don’t overpower the clarity of individual notes. It’s easy to see why modern fingerstyle players like the inimitable Antoine Dufour play Beauregards—these instruments make every note count. This beau has opened up so sweetly over the past few decades, and we’re proud to offer it to you today.

This is absolutely one of the best guitars I’ve ever heard from Mario. Maybe it’s the age, maybe the stars just aligned, but the sound is magical.
