Description

Here we have a rare 'roundneck' Model R from Paul Beard Guitars. This guitar is not only versatile for the blues/rag player/slide player, but it is now a rare find. Beard no longer makes the "round-neck" version of the Model R - he only makes the square-neck version. We love the twang the all-mahogany body and spider cone configuration provides. This one is setup perfectly for fingerstyle or slide it plays with ease. This one is complete with a Fishman Pickup system so you're ready for the stage.

The spider cone sound is very unique and it offers a great color for players wishing to cut through. You can get a bluegrass twang, a great slide tone or a bright fingerstyle blues tone all in one guitar.
 
I love the sound of this instrument. It's so much more like the Dobro square neck tone and less like the standard National tone. It's a joy to play and really has gorgeous midrange sonorities.
