RG5149, new Beard DecoPhonic Model 47 Roundneck
"I’m just beginning to dip my toe into the resonator pool, so I’m trying out a bunch of different guitars. Recently, I’ve played several Gretsch, Dobro and higher end Beard models. For the money, the Beard Deco Phonic 47 is a standout! It’s got all the grit you’d want for some down and dirty blues, with vintage vibe and tone for inspiring finger style instrumentals in the vein of Duane Allman’s, “Little Martha.” The Beard would be a really nice addition to your working arsenal, or a solid instrument for someone just starting out on resonators. Come see if the Beard Deco Phonic 47 resonates with you." - Gary (sales)
