The Bedell Summer of Love Dreadnaught revives the spirit of the most coveted acoustic guitar during the summer of 1967: the Adirondack/Brazilian dreadnought. It tells the story of the tonal magic of Brazilian Rosewood and its prominence in the music that gave us the ‘60s sound we love and appreciate to this day; it’s the sound that inspired a revolution, and went on to inspire countless musicians and transform the face of modern music.
The soundboards are crafted from 200-year-old Adirondack Spruce, which has higher resonance and more complex overtones than Sitka and provides strong volume and pronounced individual note clarity with vintage sound.
The Brazilian Rosewood used in the Summer of Love is regarded as the finest of all tonewoods: hard, stiff, rare, expensive BIG-warm and highly resonant. It is known for exceptional sustain and clarity and producing a loud, warm, rich tone with full, deep bases and brilliant trebles.
The Bedell Summer of Love comes with a gorgeous expensive Hoffee carbon fiber case.
