Beautifully made in Bend Oregon, USA - our gorgeous Natural finished with aged toner top Bedell 1964 Orchestra model is constructed from a time-honored tonewood combination of Sitka Spruce and Honduran Mahogany. Crafted similarly to the way guitars were built fifty years ago, but with more precision. The Bedell 1964 OM brings back the spirit of the music we all love. The wood used in the Sitka Spruce soundboards is salvaged from reclaimed, downed trees in Alaska. Sitka Spruce has been the primary top wood for U.S.A.-made instruments for many decades — it is strong, light, and gives an extended harmonic content. The 1964 OM’s Honduran Mahogany back and sides deliver a balanced, resonant tone with a thick bottom end, rich midrange, and a controlled, warm top end. As always, no forests were clear-cut to build Bedell 1964 guitars.
The workshop-installed USA made K&K Pure Mini pickup in the Bedell 1964 captures 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.
