Hello, just wanted you to know that I just picked up a Bedell OH-12-G. This guitar is just awesome. I have had several Parlor guitars but never had been happy with the way any of them sounded. Yours just blew me away. Nice deep rich, warm, mellow sound that I have been looking for in a Parlor. Great job. I am a very satisfied customer.
I just purchased an awesome pre-owned Bedell TB-28-G acoustic. I love this Bedell guitar!! Awesome tone, outstanding workmanship and superb playabiliy. Thanks for making a great guitar without having to take out a second mortgage on the house to buy it! Kevin; TB-28-G
I love it. This guitar is simply phenomenal, both in looks and in sound. It’s the only guitar I’ve ever had or seen personally that resonates so fully – like a strumming a well-made 12-string. I had not heard of Bedell guitars until last week. I just happened to be searching online for a parlor-sized guitar, looking for recommendations. I came across some acoustic guitar blog where someone had mentioned Bedell and asked if anyone had played it. I, then, did a few searches for Bedell specifically and saw the great reviews and a YouTube of the owner of Schmitt Music playing the same model I was looking for and praising the virtues of it. I was sold right there. And since receiving my guitar, I couldn’t have been happier.
Not a Better Guitar!
There's not a better guitar out there for the money then a Bedell.

Recently purchased a Bedell parlor guitar OH-12-G. I would like to know what brand of strings were put on these guitars at the factory. I usually play classical guitar, but tried the Bedell parlor guitar OH-12-G at Elderly Instruments and fell in love with it. Being a woman, it fits my hands better and is so easy to play. I will never sell this one!
I just bought a TBA-28-G from Tom while he visited friends in Alaska. We jammed for a week. I've been a Gibson, Martin, and Fender guitar player since I was 5 years old (1960 Gibson Melody Maker, 1970 Gibson Hummingbird, 1984 Martin Shenandoah D-35, 1996 Martin D-28, and 1997 Fender Stratocaster). I can't say enough about the quality construction, sound, and feel of my Bedell guitar. It compares most closely with my '96 D-28 in sound and performance, but far exceeds in sheer beauty. Thanks so much, Tom!
I’m writing to compliment Bedell Guitars on their instruments and their overall brand.
I currently own a ——– and a ——–. This past weekend at one of your dealers (Chicago Music Exchange) I had my first hands-on experience with Bedell Guitars. I had the privilege of playing a Bedell OH-12-G. It is a beautiful and comfortable instrument with a wonderfully balanced tone. When I can afford to buy my next guitar, it will most definitely be the Bedell OH-12-G.
Hi – I just bought a TB 28 GS from Schmitt Music in Burnsville about two weeks ago – it is a beauty and I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. I played my Schmitt Crafter from South Korea next to it for about an hour before I purchased it – went back and forth between the two instruments. I still think the bass is clearer and more distinct on the Crafter – but I love the sweet and bright sound from the Bedell – I’m wondering if the age of the guitars have anything to do with that difference? Will the Bedell woods age and “mellow” as they get older – will they produce a “richer” sound as they get older? I love the Bedell – it is the finest guitar I have ever played – thank you so much for making it and is it true you only made 25 of these models?? Thanks again.
After talking to a few of your deallers and getting your fast reply I desided to just go ahead and order a JB-52-G online at American Musical Supply.
Wow possibly the best purchase of my life, I love this Guitar at any price but $1500.00 is a steel.
My girlfriend is in florida for a few weeks so she has no clue I bought a guitar but more importantly is that she wasn’t around to see me giggling like a little school girl when I opened the case and first saw and held this guitar. By the way, great service from A.M.S. as well, from order to my door in less than 30hr’s.
I received the OH-12-G I ordered today and wanted to let you know how extremely pleased I am not only with the quality of the guitar but also with the case it came in.
I've wanted a solid wood parlor guitar for some time and this one fits the bill at a price point that is fair for the quality of the build and materials used. The setup straight out of the box is fantastic! I look forward to many years of playing it.
Thank you Bedell Guitars!
