Are you looking for a classic dreadnought-style guitar? If so, start your search with the Bedell Heritage Series HGD-28-G. This guitar took home a "Best in Show" award at the 2011 Summer NAMM, and there's no question as to why. Every wood is top-shelf, from the Indian rosewood back and sides to the Sitka spruce top. The craftsmanship is top-notch, and so is the well-balanced, brilliant tone.
Another fantastic option is the Bedell Heritage HGM-17-G. This is an orchestral acoustic guitar with a handsome finish and a Canadian cedar top. The sides and back are African sapele, and the combination works really well, putting out impressive volume and nicely-defined tone across the instrument's whole register. For playing in formal and orchestra settings, this guitar can't be beat.
Great sound is always the top goal for every luthier, but Bedell takes things a step further with sustainably-sourced tonewoods and forthright, down-to-earth philosophies behind everything they do. With these guitars, you'll know you're getting an instrument made to high standards by luthiers who constantly strive for quality.
