Milagro Series: In 2014, Tom Bedell selected a very special Brazilian rosewood tonewood set from the Milagro Tree that had grown in NE Brazil over 350 years ago. He paired it with a 400 year old Sitka spruce top with an ideal density. Angela Christensen added an old European inlay design. The first Bedell Milagro Parlor was born. Tom’s pride and joy, this instrument was safely tucked away in Tom’s home where he would frequently share it with visitors. Everyone marveled at the beauty in appearance and sound of what Tom affectionately called, “My Angel.” Wanting others to be able to have a similar instrument, Tom decided to add the Milagro Series to the 2017 line-up of Bedell Guitars.

Summer of Love Series: This series revives the spirit of the most coveted acoustic guitar during the summer of 1967: the Adirondack/Brazilian dreadnought. It’s the sound that inspired a revolution and transformed the face of modern music. The Bedell Summer of Love series is the first series presented in the Freedom Collection. This Collection captures the stories of the significant moments, events, and movements that changed our world for the better during the '60s and early '70s.
