Designed by legendary maker Paul Beard, the Gold Tone PBR roundneck resonator guitar is hand made and provides authentic tone that is unheard of in this price range. The Beard “open” soundwell body design utilizes genuine USA Beard cones & spiders, long acknowledged to be the best in the industry.

This Paul Beard model includes an improved coverplate system. Previously, in order to adjust string action, break angle, string spacing or to replace the saddle, it was necessary to detach the strings and remove the entire coverplate. The new Gold Tone/Beard resonator coverplate has a removable palm rest design, making fine adjustments easier and more efficient. Why didn't anyone think of this earlier?

The neck on this guitar has a very comfortable and friendly “C” profile. Because it is a 12 fret to the body guitar, bass response is exceptional and overall volume is more than impressive...it's loud. (Remember, resonator guitars were originally designed to be louder than regular acoustic guitars, which were overwhelmed by horns and percussion instruments in dance orchestras.)

Visually, this guitar is a treat. The brightwork sparkles like diamonds and the thinly applied gloss finish shows off the nicely grained mahogany body. The body is bound on both the top and back and the neck is also fully bound. Other classy appointments include a genuine bone nut, maple & ebony bridge, sealed tuners, twin soundholes and a soft volute at the neck/ headstock joint.

The Gold Tone Beard Signature PBR features USA assembly and setup by experienced luthiers using Beard cones & spiders. The result is a perfect setup for maximum tone and optimum playability.

You Can Add A New Gator Case To Your Order!
You can add a new Gator GW-Classic Deluxe hard case to your order for only an additional $99.99, and it would be a very wise decision. This is a well-made, wood arch-top case with a durable Tolex exterior, padded handle and heavy hardware. The plush-lined interior is densely padded and includes an accessory compartment. I'm sorry, but the case is not available separately.
