BEDELL CATHEDRAL DREADNOUGHT

Price: $7,990

While Tom Bedell was securing the world’s largest collection of legally documented Brazilian rosewood, he visited a magnificent cathedral in Segovia. Marveling at the acoustics, he vowed to design a huge sounding dreadnought. The backs are hand selected Brazilian, named Puerta de Iglesia (Church Door) as the stunning sap wood was popularly used in cathedral doorways centuries ago. The tops are individually harvested European spruce. Due to the rarity of these woods we must restrict this offering to a limited edition of six guitars.
