Pick of the Week: Episode 5. Beauregard Archtop 15"

In our fifth Pick of the Week, Nick puts the spotlight on the understated beauty of this 15" archtop guitar (already sold!) from Quebec-based luthier Mario Beauregard. Sporting back and sides of Big Leaf maple and a top of European spruce, its mellow, melodic tone is beautifully suited to jazz and fingerstyle playing.

Beauregard Archtop 15", Big Leaf Maple & European Spruce - $17,000

 Beauregard 15" Archtop Big Leaf Maple

Quebec-based luthier, Mario Beauregard, has been honing his craft of boutique guitar building for nearly 30 years and his invaluable experiences are represented in this incredible Archtop model. After studying under the revered Ervin Somogyi and Taku Sakashta years ago, Beauregard’s approach to lutherie was forever changed. This guitar’s unparalleled craftsmanship, aesthetic design, and tonality channel his mentors, while taking their influences a step further in his own direction. The Epicea Europeenne top and gorgeous 5A Big Leaf Maple back and sides pair seamlessly to create a rich, warm tone, that has a natural resonance and acoustic like quality. These tonal properties are enhanced by the custom Bendetti neck pickup, which sports a sleek ebony pickup cover. The Beauregard 15” Archtop, with its tonal complexity, hand-selected tonewoods, ebony appointments, and custom electronics, is a pristine modern instrument that is sure to turn heads.
