Up for sale is a Gold Tone PBSD.  I bought this reso used in 2012 and immediately took it up to Paul Beard and let his people set it up, install screenless sound rings, and a Fishman pickup (passive).  It has the setup sticker on the inside, visible if you look in the treble sound hole.  It is a great reso!!!  I've played it beside some solid wood/handmade models and it held it's own, and in one case blew one out of the water. 

I am selling this reso because I have one ordered.  I'm moving to a L Body otherwise I'd be staying with the PBSD.  I honestly have been debating keeping it, but my wife says, "Why do you need two dobros??".  I could come up with a few reasons.  I actually had her convinced for a second, but I want this guitar to go to a home that will give it the attention it deserves.  I barely have time to practice as it is, so I know that I wouldn't be able to keep up with a love triangle between the PBSD and the L Body..

Don't forget about Beard at Resosummit!

I know everybody was really excited to see the new National Scheerhorn collaboration, but I think just as much attention was paid to Paul Beard's offerings at Resosummit. He seemed to be doing a very brisk business selling the Beard Legend cone and new cover plates. His new Model 27 based on Tut Taylor's old guitar is one fine instrument. I borrowed it while Paul upgraded my Tennessean and was very impressed.
Mike Witcher had a new Jerry Douglas Blackbird that was a sweet as could be, and the Beard Odyssey that Andy Hall tried out sounded fantastic (less so when I tried it, but I think there may be a talent difference at work there).
This is truly a golden age for resonator guitar. We are incredibly lucky to have people like Paul, Tim and others making their finest instruments right now.
