Mike Auldridge's Beard MA-8, 8 string resonator guitar


Serial Number 11, Manuf. Date: 2003

This guitar was Mike's main 8 string 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.

This resonator guitar is an MA-8 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-8 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 fan coverplate, and chrome parts with gold screws and gold screens. It also has an original #14 spider™, and a black finish.
