Medium size body, solid sitka spruce top, ebony fingerboard, and superb construction.
The Bedell Performance MB-18-VS Orchestra Acoustic Guitar is handcrafted to exacting specifications. It features all solid woods and deluxe details that will appeal to any guitar lover. These include the hand-inlaid all-wood rosette, headstock logo, and wood binding. Truly a beautiful guitar.
Alaskan Sitka Spruce
The most popular wood for guitar tops today, Alaskan Sitka spruce produces an even, clear response from low to high tones. Known to improve with age, a Sitka-top guitar should make a great companion for your musical journey.
Take a look at the heel of most guitars and you won't spot the precision with which Bedell Guitars meticulously hand crafts and applies each heel cap. The hand-selected maple binding blends almost seamlessly, denoting the superior craftsmanship at the heart of every Bedell Guitar.
Esteemed for its strength and beauty, a traditional, handcrafted dovetail joint bonds the ebony fingerboard with the solid mahogany neck of each Bedell Guitar. In keeping with the rest of their handcrafted guitars, the frets are hand-installed.
Sure it's pure decoration, but it's indicative of the high quality of every aspect of your Bedell Guitar. The soundhole rosette is carefully inlaid by hand.
No detail is too minor for our attention. Take, for instance, the Bedell peace sign logo inlaid in the headstock ebony veneer. Each of these intricate pieces is cut and then inlaid by hand.
Stunning in their strength and beauty, handcrafted solid maple bindings exquisitely hug every curve of your Bedell Guitar. Each instrument is hand-routed to perfectly match the sleek yet rugged binding that is then carefully glued in place.
Bedell partners with the best to make sure your Bedell Guitar is the best. They turned to Grover for the gold-plated tuning machines on all of our Bedell Guitars. Why Grover? For more than 50 years Grover has been the industry benchmark for keeping top quality instruments in tune.
High Gloss Finish
The pristine finish on a Bedell Guitar is the result of no fewer than six precision steps. First sealer is hand-applied, then electric sanded until it's smooth. With artistic care the finish is hand-sprayed. Next the guitar is wet-sanded by hand, a two-step process, before it is finally buffed on a wheel to achieve the optimum gloss finish.
Bedell Guitars take your music-and the instrument that helps create it-very seriously. It starts with the solid woods that they individually hand select and cure until they're perfect for their luthiers to craft into the finest of instruments. The ebony fingerboards and solid mahogany necks are carefully shaped and hand sanded; the bracing is adjusted according to the woods and body style. Finally, your Bedell Guitar is hand polished and individually adjusted to deliver incredible music.
