New Beard E Model in Quilted Maple

After nine months of waiting, I finally took delivery of my new Beard E model in quilted maple.

This guitar has the hipshot doubleshot tailpiece and fishman nashville pickup installed. To complement the doubleshot, the guitar has a roller nut and locking tuners. The cover plate is a celtic knot design offered by Beard.
