A made-in-the-USA dreadnought with retro style.

The Deco Phonic Highball acoustic guitar by Beard is a uniquely resonant and punchy instrument. Revered for its amazing bluegrass and Americana voicing, this slope-shouldered dreadnought with a more comfortable depth is perfect for any player looking for a knock-out instrument with a more ergonomic profile.

The body is constructed of Finnish birch veneer back and sides with a solid Engelmann spruce top, unique Aero X Bracing, a one-piece mahogany neck, and a morado fingerboard and bridge. The vintage-inspired thin satin finish harkens back to the look and feel of the Art Deco period of guitars that provided the sonic backdrop to the resurgence of American prosperity.The hand-shaped bone nut and compensated saddle work in harmony with the vintage-inspired tuners to reveal a “best-in-class” Depression-era vibe with a stable modern musical performance. Handcrafted in Maryland, The Deco Phonic line of acoustic instruments represents the latest level in the evolution of the historically styled acoustic instruments available

Vintage Reimagined Aesthetically, Deco Phonic acoustic guitars by Beard are a shameless love letter to a time gone by. Inspired by the art deco period of the 1920s and 1930s, their classic colors and familiar details strike a natural chord. The soft C, almost V-shaped necks, aged tuners and simplistic finish pay homage to the well-loved depression era instruments. Yet the refined body shapes add a subtle and fresh stylistic perspective.

Aero X Bracing At the heart of every Deco Phonic acoustic guitar is Beard's innovative Aero X Bracing. Their goal was to create a lightweight super responsive guitar top. To achieve this, Beard combined aircraft-style weight relief—a method of carving the inside of the brace—with mahogany to reduce the weight while maintaining support, something that is difficult with traditional spruce top braces. This noticeably improves the volume and projection of the guitar, as well as the responsiveness and touch sensitivity of the strings.
