 Mike Auldridge's Beard MA-6, 6 string resonator guitar

Serial Number 02073, Manuf. Date: 2003

This guitar was Mike's main guitar from 2003 till 2012. It was used on all his recordings during that time. Mike played this guitar longer than any other guitar in his career. It was described as the "grand piano" of resonators and is a very special guitar. He played this guitar on his very last recording for the upcoming album, with Jerry Douglas and Rob Ickes, a few months before he passed. 

This is a once in a lifetime chance to own Mike's personal favorite 6 string guitar.

This guitar has a one-of-a-kind peghead logo. What makes this a one-of-a-kind is that the "Beard" logo is underneath the Mike Auldridge name. All models after this one had the "Beard" next to the nut at the end of the fretboard. (see photo)

  This resonator guitar is an MA-6 model with a mahogany neck and birch body. This guitar was hand built by Paul Beard for Mike Auldridge in 2003. This guitar features LEGEND TONE™ tuned construction. The MA-6 produces the distinctive Mike Auldridge signature sound; a huge, warm low end, with a sweet, crystal clear, bell-like high end, being perfectly balanced in between with awesome sustain.

It has an ebony fretboard with “Hearts & Flowers™” mother-of-pearl inlays, a custom Hearts & Flowers™ coverplate, and chrome parts. It also has an original #14 spider™, and a black finish.

Also includes a custom leather hand carved strap by Robert Poff with Mike's "MA" initials, Mike's Korg tuner, a set of his picks and a bar.
