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.

Bedell 1964 Orchestra Acoustic/Electric - Natural Shadow

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.
