Bedell 1964 Orchestra Special Edition

The 1964 Orchestra Special Edition from Bedell: A Return to Vintage Craftsmanship

The Bedell 1964 Orchestra Special Edition revives the cherished tones and craftsmanship of the past with its traditional build and superior sound quality. Constructed from the renowned tonewood combination of Adirondack spruce and Honduran mahogany, this guitar is a homage to the golden era of instrument making. It delivers a sound that is as nostalgic as it is captivating, perfect for both collectors and performers alike.

Premium Materials for Exceptional Sound

The choice of Adirondack spruce for the top and Honduran mahogany for the back and sides ensures a balanced tone with a robust bottom end, rich midrange, and a warm, controlled top end. The gloss finish on both the top and back enhances the natural beauty of these woods, while the ebony fretboard and tortoise binding add a touch of elegance and smooth playability.

Advanced Electronics and Ethical Craftsmanship

Equipped with a K&K Pure Mini pickup, the Bedell 1964 Orchestra captures the fullness of analog sound with remarkable authenticity. This setup ensures that the guitar’s vibrant, full-bodied sound is accurately amplified without any feedback on stage. Moreover, Bedell's commitment to ethical sourcing means that no forests were clear-cut to create this beautiful instrument, making it a choice you can feel good about.
