Beard and Benoit resophonics at the Texas Steel Guitar Jamboree

I've posted some pictures from the Texas Steel Guitar Jamboree held last weekend on the Steel Guitar Forum.

Carroll Benoit makes a really fine resophonic guitar. I played several different models that he had on display and was impressed with all of them.

I also played the Jerry Douglas model Beard guitar. The pattern in the wood on the body was unreal - almost psychedelic. My photo doesn't really bring out its beauty.

Howard, by the way, is a very fine player. We had some fun jamming! I don't know if I should post my photo of him playing somebody's Scheerhorn - I was saving it for potential blackmail purposes. :)

Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of Mike Auldridge, who was also attending the event.

I found another reso at a decent price, and thought I'd share.  It'd be a nice, quality, starter!

I don't know if this link will get you directly to it, but it will get you going in the right direction.

Looking for a Used Beard E Model

I'm hoping to find a used Beard E model - ideally maple but I would consider a mahogany one as well. If you have one you'd like to sell, I'd be interested in hearing the details. Thanks!
