Description

Fingerstyle guitars are definitely one of our specialties, and we've spent a lot of time with different scale lengths, wood combinations, body sizes, and nut widths. From those years of study, we've formed a mental image of what an ideal fingerstyle instrument needs in order to blow us away. This 2006 Beauregard OM--a living example of that ideal. Mario paired a dark-grained set of African Blackwood with Red Cedar, a newer pairing that luthiers are just now experimenting with, and the result is oceanic in its depth, and atmospheric in its clarity.

The bass strings have a fundamentally rich tonality, perfectly balanced with the other registers, which lends the entire voice an enveloping array of colors. The setup is glass-smooth with a 1 25/32" nut and low action for effortless playing--and with an aggressive attack or gentle touch, this Beauregard's voice is teeming with energy and sustain. To describe this guitar as lush in lowered tuning would be an understatement: played in DADGAD, this Beauregard has a profound resonance and harmonic palette.

One of my favorite tonewood combinations is African Blackwood and Cedar, and this Beauregard is why: the instrument is instantly responsive, and combines a rich tonality with a smooth, clean projection. This is one of the finest fingerstyle guitars you'll find on the market today.
 
Nice even mids characterize the tone on this guitar making it perfect for strumming or fingerstyle.
