NAMM ’15: Acoustic Guitar and Blackbird Vegan Guitar

Posted by Marc Greilsamer


One of the most interesting product introductions at this year’s Winter NAMM show was the Bedell Blackbird Vegan series. Available in dreadnought, orchestra, and parlor sizes, the Blackbird series is handcrafted in the United States and uses only American-harvested woods: Sitka spruce tops salvaged from a forest in southeast Alaska, Western big-leaf maple for the backs and sides, Eastern hard-rock maple for the necks, and walnut fingerboards, bridges, and headstock overlays. In addition, there is no abalone, no bone nut and saddle, no hide glue, and only organic parts. Bedell’s Sami Mulhern gives us a look at the new line.
