Designed by legendary maker Paul Beard, the Gold Tone Paul Beard Round Neck Deluxe (PBR-D) is the roundneck version of Paul's signature squareneck resonator guitar. It's all made by hand and provides amazingly warm tone, especially for its price range.
The PBR-D features an ebony fingerboard, maple back and sides, and a high gloss tobacco sunburst finish. The top, back and fretboard are bound in natural-finished maple. Fingerboard inlays are the traditional 'hearts and flowers' style. This is a really exceptional-looking instrument.
The Beard "open" soundwell body design utilizes genuine American-made Beard cones & spiders. All Gold Tone Beard Signature Series feature USA assembly and setup by experienced luthiers. Instruments undergo an additional setup for maximum tone & playability before leaving the factory.
