Beauregard Guitar Wish List
In wanted to have something very special to remember my Dad, who passed in 2016. A beautiful guitar felt like a great tribute to a wonderful man. I look forward to thinking of my Dad every time I pick it up and play.
After looking at various possibilities, I had started to fixate on a Collings i35, but Trump made me reconsider buying anything American. I decide to find some non-American source for a beautiful guitar and bumped into Mario’s extraordinary work. I spoke to Mario Beauregard on the phone about building something special to cherish my Dad’s memory. I am so happy he has decided to build me a guitar. I sent my deposit today – it’s official – I am excited!!
