  • Great show again. I’m now a huge fan of the Dead Horses band. And thanks a ton for bringing Mario Beauregard guitars to our attention. Another Canadian luthier for me to follow and possibly collect (I currently own a vintage Laskin and a not-yet-vintage Simon and Patrick). There are some songs that just belong on nylon strings, but Classical guitars are not always the most comfortable to us steel-string acoustic folks. So I was pumped to see that Mario makes a Jazz Nylon model “to accommodate jazz and flat top players who want to feel at home on a nylon string guitar.” It seems the neck width and shape are more like steel stringed guitars, and the the fretboard is curved at a familiar radius. All of his guitars are gorgeous, but I definitely want to add his Jazz Nylon to my guitarsenal.

  • You know you are a guitar geek when one of your favorite daytime dates is sitting on the sofa holding hands with your sweetie watching Acoustic Tuesday.
