Default New Beauregard MB Facet Archtop

If this set of Maple and Spruce was a canvas, Mario Beauregard may have just painted his masterpiece. With fingerplanes and scrapers for brush and palette, Beauregard has rendered this guitar in graceful, sloping curves, all Facets and swirls and voluptuous waves. You won't be able to find another guitar like this anywhere in the world--take it from us; we're on the lookout--because this is the first time Mario has started with his "Facets" Archtop design and taken it once step further.
Incredibly, Beauregard has managed to carve F-holes out of the reliefs of his Facets on the Spruce top, making them the ultimate in subtlety and elegance. With Maple sides that contour smoothly into the back and top, this guitar is absurdly comfortable to play as it rests easily in your lap--and the slim neck profile is effortless to fret. The archtop design gives this instrument great headroom for its expressive voice, with a bottom end which is crisp and trebles that crackle--and when you're ready to plug in and get playing, shine a special UV flashlight (included) across the side dots and they'll glow and demarcate the frets for the duration of your session.
As if Mario's masterful carving skills weren't enough to make this guitar a headturner, he managed to get his hands on the first Benedetti PAF that the French company built for their 50th anniversary--making this a one-of-a-kind guitar both acoustically and amplified. The Benedetti PAF lends the guitar a warmth and attack to make it superb for fingerstyle Jazz or lead work. Shining in its chrome casing modelled after an old-school microphone, the Benedetti offsets the darkly glittering paint job across the body of the guitar, brooding with metal flake like a 1965 Mustang Cobra. And this guitar is just as fast, sexy, and rare--but infinitely more portable.

The MB Facets is the hotrod Archtop of your dreams.
