The Beard Decophonic Model 27 resonator guitars harken back to the earliest production dobros in look and feel. The stripped down aesthetic and woody tone bring to mind the sounds of the Depression era; and the nice, slim round neck construction makes this a very playable guitar whether you're equipped with a slide or not. An excellent value in a modern resonator! We've upgraded this one with a Jerry Douglas pick up system. Priced with hard case.
