The Mike Auldrige Beard Square Neck

OMG! Stay clear of this one whatever you do--it bites like an asp! I walked into Dusty Strings, looking to play a Weissy yesterday--they didn't have any--so I checked out the square necks hanging on the wall. They only had 3 of them--all Beards. Well, I had no time to mess around and no bar--I usually just borrow one from a lady who works there, but the store was full and she was busy--but I was curious--so I just went over and ran the back of my index nail across the strings of them, one at a time, just to get a little idea of the sound. The other Beards were great--but then I came to this Mike Auldridge one--it bit me deep in my GASSY little heart--it's 3700 dollars and I want it bad! It was the best reso sound I have heard in my life. That chord is still ringing in my soul! One little innocent strum and I'm damaged goods!

But you'd probably be better off not knowing about this one. . .
