It's been a while since we've stocked one of Paul Beard's Signature models, especially a square neck. But as soon as we unboxed this way cool Josh Swift Model, we realized that there's been a whole sea change in Dobro design since we last had an E Model a few years back. This guitar screams coolness with an understated elegance. From its silver burst finish and rounded Softedge contoured body to Beard's new Shockwave bridge inserts and Legend Cone, this is a squareneck guitar that finally escapes the stodgy boundaries of traditional country and bluegrass. For anyone who needs a jolt of excitement to their guitar playing, there's no time like the present day to undertake the truly satisfying pursuit of slide reso-guitar.
