A solid top guitar produced in the same workshop as Bedell performance instruments.
The Bedell Discovery BDMCE-18-M Orchestra Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar is perfect for those on a budget seeking a performance quality orchestra guitar. It's ready to go wherever your music takes you, including the stage with its built-in Fishman Isys-T pickup/preamp.
The BDDCE-18-M has a solid sitka spruce top. This is the most popular wood for guitar tops today. 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.
Bedell uses laminated mahogany for the back and sides. This works well for an orchestra model guitar with a sitka top to generate a strong bass with thick mid and treble tones.
For stage performance the BDDCE-18 benefits from a Fishman Isys-T pickup/preamp system. The system features a single contour knob to dial in your tone. There's also a phase switch to help fight feedback and an onboard tuner.
Includes gig bag.
Enjoy the beauty and sound of this value-packed guitar. Order today.

Comments about Bedell Discovery BDMCE-18-M Orchestra Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
In seeking a full bodied acoustic guitar which was actually made of wood, at a tolerable price point, I began to lose faith. Enter this model. Solid spruce top and mahogany laminate sides absolutely sing. Unplugged, its tone is warm, loud and clear. Plugged tones through pre amp & effects revealed equally soaring sounds - the Fishman pre-amp is a monumental bonus for a guitar at this price. I looked into most of the major brands which have a reputation for affordability and features. None came close to the Bedell. Do a side by side comparison - it's shocking how much guitar this is compared the ones you may typically turn to - you know the brands I speak of. Musicians tend to place a lot of stock in name brands - I'm one of them, no doubt, but in taking a chance on this instrument I'm thinking a bit differently, as I've found the Bedell company to be very sincere about building quality instruments - even at this virtual 'student' level. Buy with confidence, folks.
