Paul Beard builds many of the finest squareneck resonator guitars, like the Beard R Model, at his shop in Hagerstown, Maryland.

The Beard R model is designed for the player looking for the classic style and sound of the 1930s resonators. The Beard R Models, both standard and vintage, have a traditional body shape and open soundwell construction and feature all solid wood body, mahogany neck, curly maple binding and Beard's classic burst finish. Beard R Models feature Paul Beards handspun BC-1 Cone and a Beard Original #14™ spider, made from the same pattern and casting process that was used in the 30's.

The Beard R model is perfect for traditional playing; the smaller body produces a clear sustained high range balanced with a punchy growling bass end.

Dating to 2011, this Beard R model is in excellent condition and is supplied with a TKL case.
