Bedell 1964 Orchestra Acoustic/Electric - Natural Shadow

$2740.00

image

1964 Orchestra - ON ORDER


Overview:
The Bedell 1964 Orchestra is constructed from a time-honored tonewood combination of Sitka spruce and Honduran mahogany, crafted similarly to the way guitars were built fifty years ago. The Bedell 1964 Orchestra brings back the spirit of the music we all love. The wood used in the Sitka spruce soundboards is salvaged from downed trees in Alaska. Sitka spruce has been the primary top wood for U.S.A.-made instruments for many decades — it is strong, light, and gives an extended harmonic content that nearly equals the power of Adirondack spruce. The 1964 Orchestra’s Honduran mahogany back and sides deliver a balanced, resonant tone with a thick bottom end, rich midrange, and a controlled, warm top end. As always, no forests were clear-cut to build Bedell 1964 guitars.

The workshop-installed K&K Pure Mini pickups in the Bedell 1964 Orchestra capture the authentic fullness of analog sound and the vibe of the era, without stage feedback. The ethically sourced tonewoods, the all-wood binding and subtle appointments result in a classic instrument, made with the same care, attention and craftsmanship as guitars from the golden era of instrument building… all at an accessible price point.

All Bedell Guitars come with a hardshell case.
Note: this series has been updated for 2018. The top finish has been changed and is called Natural Shadow. The appointments have also been updated to brass for the logo and inlay dots. The images on this page are not updated, but the series image reflects the new changes.

Coffee House Dreadnought - ON ORDER


Overview:
For the timeless folk-rock sound that defined an entire generation, look no further than the Bedell Coffee House Dreadnought. These instruments are exquisitely crafted to revive the spirit that inspired the incredible music of the counterculture era: Adirondack spruce tops from individually harvested trees, sustainably grown Indian rosewood backs and sides, traditional body shapes, an espresso sunburst finish, and a handcrafted koa binding.

There is something striking about the sound of rosewood paired with Adirondack spruce… when strummed, the Coffee House guitars take you right back to that moment in time when music was changing forever, when coffee houses were a radical, safe place for youth who wanted to change the world, and who believed in equality, justice, love and authentic self-expression.

The workshop-installed K&K Pure Mini pickups in the Bedell Coffee House Dreadnaught capture the fullness of sound and the vibe of the era authentically, without stage feedback. All Bedell Guitars come with a hardshell case.

Discovery Concert CE Sunburst


Overview
Breedlove’s Distinctively Crafted Sound in the ultra-popular concert body shape and in a great new color, the Discovery Concert Sunburst is ready for amplification and is outfitted for ease of playability with a soft cutaway.


BODY SHAPE
The Breedlove Concert is the original Breedlove shape. It first appeared in 1992, and has been the best-selling Breedlove body shape ever since. Designed specifically for the fingerstylist to be well balanced, compact, and comfortable to play, it generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The unique construction also allows the Concert to sing even at a full strum. If you’re a fingerstylist, or are seeking an instrument to use as vocal accompaniment, this is the shape for you. The Concert is engineered to provide exceptional sustain with a pronounced bass response, both of which can be achieved with a light touch. The graduated top works in harmony with the Breedlove Bridge Truss to provide an even response throughout the lows, mids, and highs, with sustain, and clear, concise, note-for-note projection.

BREEDLOVE NECK
Breedlove guitars feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish also contributes to ideal playability. The labor-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.

TOP WOODS
Sitka spruce, picea sitchensis, originates in the northwest United States. Sitka spruce has been the primary top wood for American-made instruments for decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and it nearly equals the power of Adirondack. It offers a strong, focused tone with a solid fundamental -- perfect for flatpicking styles. When compared with European spruce, Sitka delivers warmer, more fundamental sound, largely free of overtones. Sitka takes a slightly longer period of playing time to open up. It has a straight uniform grain and coloration ranges from white to pink to light brown.

BREEDLOVE PINLESS BRIDGE
The Breedlove Pinless Bridge helps maintain the integrity of the top by eliminating the need for six drilled string holes. The fewer holes in your soundboard, the more evenly the sound wave can move across the interior, without any loss of energy. The Breedlove Pinless Bridge also provides a gentler string-break angle from the bridge to the top of the saddle, reducing saddle strain. This innovative bridge also makes string changes a breeze, especially on 12 strings. Plus, you’ll never again have to worry about lost, worn-out, or broken bridge pins.

LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY
Breedlove players around the world can attest: With consistent, proper care, your Breedlove will give you a lifetime of service – and inspiration. New Breedlove instruments, purchased through an authorized Breedlove dealer, are warrantied to be free of defects in materials and workmanship throughout the lifetime of the original owner. In addition to materials and workmanship, Breedlove offers a two-year warranty on tuning machines and electronics packages. Cases and bags are subject to a one-year warranty covering defects in structure and hardware.

The graduated top works in harmony with the Breedlove Bridge Truss to provide an even response throughout the lows, mids, and highs, with sustain, and clear, concise, note-for-note projection.


BREEDLOVE NECK
Breedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. Unlike traditional dovetail neck joints that require major surgery for a neck re-set, it is easy to adjust the play action and neck angle with the Breedlove bolt-on neck and single-action truss rod. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish contributes to ideal playability – the finish process alone takes three days, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.


ASYMMETRICAL HEADSTOCK
The asymmetrical headstock is featured on CM, Concert, Auditorium, and 12-String body shapes. This headstock isn’t just a pretty shape – it’s specifically designed to keep the strings in a straight, even line from the nut to the tuning pegs. The result is even tension, stable tuning, and ease of alternate tuning.


BACK AND SIDE WOODS
Myrtlewood, umbellularia californica, formerly oreodaphne californica, originates in the western United States in Northern California and Oregon. Myrtlewood offers a strong fundamental with a powerful voice. Similar to maple, it has a clear and bright voice with superb projection and sustain, and offers a full and balanced sound. A versatile non-traditional tonewood, it is a favorite for many styles of playing. Myrtle has very unique and widely varied figure – no two sets are alike. Coloration ranges from blonde to taupe.


TOP WOOD
Sitka spruce, picea sitchensis, originates in the northwest United States. Sitka spruce has been the primary top wood for American-made instruments for decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and it nearly equals the power of Adirondack. It offers a strong, focused tone with a solid fundamental -- perfect for flatpicking styles. When compared with European spruce, Sitka delivers warmer, more fundamental sound, largely free of overtones. Sitka takes a slightly longer period of playing time to open up.

It has a straight uniform grain and coloration ranges from white to pink to light brown.

 

BREEDLOVE BRIDGE TRUSS
The Breedlove Bridge Truss (BBT) reduces tension on the soundboard of the guitar, so the top wood is able to vibrate more freely, producing remarkable sustain, balance, and clarity. The BBT also allows for a thinner graduated top, thereby allowing Breedlove craftsmen to bring out the optimal sound from the top wood without sacrificing structural stability. Relieving much of the string tension from the bridge prevents “bridge belly,” ensuring top stability for decades. Guitar strings can exert up to 230 pounds of pull from the nut to the bridge. Traditional methods for preventing top bowing at the bridge usually involve heavy internal bracing and thicker tops. The BBT compensates for this pressure in an innovative way: The BBT is mounted to the bridge from the inside and is connected into the tail block of the guitar, pulling downward on the underside of the bridge to distribute some of the tension, relieving pressure on the top. The resulting tonal effect on BBT-equipped guitars is more resonance and livelier sound with enhanced overtones.

 

BREEDLOVE PINLESS BRIDGE
The Breedlove Pinless Bridge helps maintain the integrity of the top by eliminating the need for six drilled string holes. The fewer holes in your soundboard, the more evenly the sound wave can move across the interior, without any loss of energy. The Breedlove Pinless Bridge also provides a gentler string-break angle from the bridge to the top of the saddle, reducing saddle strain. This innovative bridge also makes string changes a breeze, especially on 12 strings. Plus, you’ll never again have to worry about lost, worn-out, or broken bridge pins.
