Anyway you can type what it says? I can't see the words very well.

As for the wording on the plaque, this is what Caryn Wariner sent me:

Whereas, long a fixture as Chet’s band leader and confidant, Paul Yandell was truly invaluable.

Whereas, he is no stranger to accolades for his many contributions to country music, the Nashville recording community, and the guitar world in his own rights.

Whereas, observing that Paul Yandell was involved in the distribution of all the c.g.p. honors as Chet’s assistant, and being extremely humble and modest, recused himself of that very honor.

Be it resolved by the Atkins family that throughout the land Paul Yandell, thumbpicker supreme, be known as the last and final a c.g.p., certified guitar player. Paul, you are truly the c.g.p.’s c.g.p
