  • Description

Designed by legendary maker Paul Beard, the Gold Tone Paul Beard Square Neck Deluxe (PBSD) signature model guitar is made by hand and provides unmatched tone in its price range.

The PBSD features an ebony fingerboard, maple back and sides, and a high gloss tobacco sunburst finish. The top, back and fretboard are bound in natural-finished maple. Fingerboard inlays are the traditional 'hearts and flowers' style. This is a really exceptional looking instrument.

The Beard "open" soundwell body design utilizes genuine American-made Beard cones & spiders. All Gold Tone Beard Signature Series feature USA assembly and setup by experienced luthiers. Instruments undergo an additional setup for maximum tone & playability before leaving the factory.

Why We Like It


Gold Tone resonator instruments offer exceptional value, and we always like that. The PBS-D is another fine example: a wonderful-sounding, easy-to-play resonator with beautiful appointments and details (like maple trim on the body and neck). While they aren't vintage or custom made, these guitars are defintely suitable for stage and studio work. We’re glad to be able to offer well-made resonator guitars of this caliber at a price well below comparable custom-level guitars.
