Bedell Overture Dreadnought

European Spruce/Milagro Brazilian Rosewood

$9,990

Released January 1, 2019

The Milagro tree, a “miraculous” Brazilian rosewood tree that grew on an undulating hillside in Espirito Santo, developed a spider-webbing pattern as its nascent roots went in search of a limited water supply. The result: it resonates like glass with unmatched sustain and projection. European spruce is unique in its clarity and power. The Bedell Overture sounds like it is performing in a century old European stone cathedral with its rich overtones and enduring sustain.

Bedell Forte Dreadnought

Adirondack Spruce/Puerta d’ Iglesia Brazilian Rosewood

$7,990

Released April 1, 2019

Striking with its prominent sapwood, European cathedrals often selected Brazilian rosewood for their magnificent entryway doors, hence, Puerta d’Iglesia. Paired with the power of stout Adirondack spruce, each hand selected tonewood set has been chosen for its stunning beauty and tonal brilliance. The appropriate designation for the Bedell Forte is “elegance”.

Bedell Serenade Orchestra

Sitka Spruce/Unique Brazilian Rosewood

$8,990

Released July 1, 2019

Searching through our collection, we have selected eight of the most highly figured and exquisite looking sets of Brazilian for this very special offering of orchestra instruments. Designed for individual note richness and clarity, Sitka spruce is the ideal choice to achieve fingerstyle brilliance. The Bedell Serenade articulates the music of each string in melodic wonder.

Bedell Cadenza Parlor

Ocean Sinker Redwood/Esperanza Brazilian Rosewood

$6,990

Released October 1, 2019

Discarded into a bog on a NE Brazilian ranch, the Esperanza tree absorbed mineral deposits, making it more dense and brilliant as a tonewood. 7,000 miles away, an ancient redwood tree was washed into the Pacific Ocean and over the years drifted its way to Manzanita Beach in Tillamook County, Oregon. The result: the Bedell Cadenza is a warm and sweet sounding parlor that sings like an angel.

Though not the first, the Charlie Christian pickup was at the vanguard of the shift to electric guitars.

It’s easy to gripe about change, but us guitarists have always had to embrace new technology.

California has always been the place of dreams for young Americans: Hollywood, surf music, pop music, psychedelia, hot rods, biker culture, and glam metal. The Golden State’s only real pop-culture competition has traditionally been New York City, and we know that the beaches and forests are better on the Pacific side. Recently, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order requiring that, starting in 2035, all new passenger cars and light trucks sold in the state must be zero-emissions vehicles. Once again, Cali leads by example, and what once was unthinkable becomes reality. Strangely, this EV revolution reminds me of the emergence of the electric guitar.
