This Beard Deco Phonic Model 27 is a round neck single cone spider guitar and represents a new series from Beard, designed to re-create the aesthetics of the 1920’s and the dawn of the resophonic guitar.
This is a high quality instrument and though it represents and entry level for Beard, it a classy guitar. The body is a Finnish Birch laminate, the neck Mahogany, and the fingerboard is Morado, also known as Pau Ferro or sometimes Bolivian Rosewood. The Dark Vintage Sunburst is an open-pore finish, very light and unrestrictive, feeling worn in already. It looks really stunning and has a great feel.
For hardware, the tuners are vintage style strip tuners with creme plastic buttons, a traditional nickel plated tailpiece and fan pattern coverplate, a Beard #14 Spider and triple-spun cone.
Fretwork and assembly are top notch.
This is the guitar has a wonderfully warm character that sounds great played with fingers or a slide..
A word from the manufacturer…
This new series of resonator guitars from Paul Beard reflect the stylings of the Art Deco period in which the resonator guitar was originally developed. Applying innovative modern construction techniques to create a vintage vibe and sound is what gives these new instruments their appeal! Crafted at the Beard Mastershop in Maryland, this is a hot seller.
