3G-MS Custom Cutaway (multiscale) guitar “All the experimental things worked; together, they did something amazing! Side ports, asymmetrical neck, unusual top hole, radial bracing on the back, laminated wood, strange peghead, armrest — they were all in service to the sound and the playability, all about my interaction with the instrument."-- Henry Kaiser, Fretboard Journal That quote sums up any Beardsell guitar I have ever owned or played.  I still have 2 others, and this one is unfortunately just not getting fair playtime.  This one is in mint, new looking condition, and that's just the way I want to sell this one.  It's been used in home studio work only, primarily on my 2019 "Kona" CD. This guitar is extremely versatile, but certainly excels with alternate and lower tunings, as the demo describes.  Allan Beardsell is one of Canada's finest and most innovative luthiers of our day. 

Model 3—"I’ve always wanted to make a more classic fingerstyle guitar. The 3GM is more traditional in shape and in voice, with it’s 16″ body and its soundhole topside. A slightly deeper body retains the fuller sound of the 4 size and the percussiveness of the 2GS. A single smaller port on the upper shoulder keeps the player in the loop. The arm rest is a little different as well – it is cut directly into the corner of the lower bout without purfling casements. The typical armrest is normally supported under the top by a block that follows the armrest shape ostensibly narrowing the tops width by almost an inch. The Platform rim is wide enough to allow the thinner “bevelini” armrest to be cut in through the binding , but without the support block.” (Allan Beardsell)
