Hello all,

I've been shopping around for different guitars and I think I've settled on the E-model made by Beard.  Currently, they only have the mahogany model in stock although I know of a few shops around that are carrying the maple model.

From what I understand, the mahogany is going to carry a warmer tone while the maple will have a sharper tone that resembles many of the Sheerhorn models.  I spoke with Chet, a representative of Beard this morning.  He actually prefers the mahogany model but I wanted to get other opinions as well.

I haven't had the chance to play the mahogany model and was hoping I could get some insight from the fine people of reso-nation.

Thank y'all and happy playing!
