Is it possible for modern square neck resonators to sound so different, even if they’re made by the same builder?
After our previous journey into the world of vintage acoustic square neck guitars, I thought it would be fun to switch gears and introduce you to the modern side of my collection. Today, we’re focusing on the square neck resonator guitars – specifically, the phenomenal creations of Beard Guitars.
I’ll be presenting six beautiful models from my personal collection, each one unique, and each one a testament to Beard Guitars’ stellar craftsmanship. First, we’ve got the Model E, a true beauty that sings with an authentic resonator sound. Then, I’ll be showing you not just one, but two different Josh Swift Models, each with its own special features and tonal quality. And to top it all off, I’ve got a charming Vintage R model that’s sure to pique your interest.
But this video is not just about these fantastic guitars in my collection—it’s also an exploration and appreciation of the exceptional craftsmanship of Beard Guitars. These folks are doing some really amazing things when it comes to creating modern resonator guitars that are perfect for both traditional and contemporary playing styles.
We’ll delve into the specifics of their specs, what sets them apart, and why I consider them a go-to source for high-quality square neck resonators.
