Quilted Maple

New Beard E Model in Quilted Maple

After nine months of waiting, I finally took delivery of my new Beard E model in quilted maple.

This guitar has the hipshot doubleshot tailpiece and fishman nashville pickup installed. To complement the doubleshot, the guitar has a roller nut and locking tuners. The cover plate is a celtic knot design offered by Beard.

It plays as beautifully as it looks, with a warm but sparkling sound that gives plenty of volume and projection. The balance of sound from top to bottom is superb, but the lower notes can be made to growl with little effort. I have it strung with D'Addario EJ42 strings, which in my experience provides the best tone with the Beard Legend cone.
