voici une réponse de Paul Beard :
We've had those cover plates for about 2 years.
The top three are available to anyone. We reserve the bottom 4 for Beard guitars. We'll be happy to sell them to any Beard owner. All we need is the s/n of your guitar.
We also reserve 2 additional cover plates for the Mike Auldridge and Jerry Douglas guitars.
Cover plate design is an art..and science. They have to look good of course. There also has to be an appropriate balance between open and closed spaces. Position of the design on the cover plate is also important.
