1964 Special Edition Dreadnought


Pairing Adirondack spruce with Honduran mahogany results in a mid-range powerhouse. It has the power to fit in with any collection of acoustic instruments and more than hold its own. The wider fretboard facilitates finger picking, rapid fire play.

The workshop-installed K&K Pure Mini pickups in the Bedell 1964 Dreadnought 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.
