I am picking up playing the reso after many years, have an old dobro I've been using. Got a lead on a Paul Beard Signature that was in the family, never used. Anyway, hope to see it soon, I do have this pic, not much else info till I see it. Can anyone offer insight just by this pic, maybe some ideas on what to look for to determine exact model and value? Thanks for any input and advice.
1. More desirable? To some. Beard sticker will be under one of the screens. If a Beard setup it might well be old enough where a new setup is desirable, depending on condition. Beard has not set them up for a few years now.
2. Guitar upgrade credit if purchased from a beard dealer? Sorry, no! Only if the original purchaser bought from Beard direct.
3. Doubleshot and pickup? If that's your style, sure. Add the cost of a new case as well. The Doubleshot equipped guitars are too deep for the standard case.
Thanks for all the input Howard and Mark, it is a vey nice guitar in great shape never played, and has a Beard sticker under the high side sound hole. I passed on it because I really need a pickup, but it seems a good price at 950. If anyone is interested, I can forward contact info.
