Preowned, near-mint

The MB design is very unique, and offers the guitarist a wonderfully versatile instrument that has all the woody resonance and build quality of a fine electric archtop in an extremely comfortable and original body style. Depending on how you string this guitar up, you can run the gamut from serious jazz guitar to blues, or even fusion while never losing the essential acoustic quality of the guitar. This is one of those instruments that can transcend styles and draw the music out of you.

CRAIG'S POV

I have known Mario Beauregard for many years and have always been deeply impressed with both the man and his guitars. Mario and I have long discussed getting his guitars into the shop but for one reason or another - be it timing, schedules, or logistics - it just never happened.

So I feel quite fortunate to have the opportunity to offer one of his fine instruments for sale - a stunningly beautiful semi-hollow MB model. The MB design is very unique, and offers the guitarist a wonderfully versatile instrument that has all the woody resonance and build quality of a fine electric archtop in an extremely comfortable and original body style.

Depending on how you string the guitar up, you can run the gamut from serious jazz guitar to blues, or even fusion while never losing the essential acoustic quality of the guitar. This is one of those instruments that can transcend styles and draw the music out of you. Think of it as one pickup, super ergonomic L5 CES on steroids.

The build quality is of the absolute highest order with all the craft and artistry found in Mario's archtops and flattops. Beauregard knows from years of experience and deep understanding how to bring out the full mojo in a bespoke guitar. Lutherie is his passion and it flows from his hands and heart. The neck is a medium full C shape and beautifully carved. The single humbucker is a perfect pickup choice for this MB - allowing its inherent voice to speak without muddiness. It simply sparkles.

Bottom line: this is one striking and amazing guitar. With its artfully carved rounded body and superlative tone and build quality it is a guitar of the highest order - one that you can get lost in.

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.
