Bedell Guitars is a relatively new acoustic guitar manufacturer from Oregon, USA started by Tom Bedell, Founder of Two Old Hippies, LLC. in 2009. Despite being so new to the guitar creating world Bedell Guitars are fine crafted guitars that can stand up to their more seasoned competitors. All wood construction from the finest woods, really nice finishes and excellent feel and tone prove that Bedell Guitars know how to make a guitar, and that they are here to stay. Bedell Guitars show a lot of appreciation for the wood that goes into their guitars by having what they call a “Seed To Song Journey”. They never use any clear cut trees and try to take as many steps to be friendly to the environment as possible with a whole set of rules that dictate how their wood can be gathered. Theses guitars are truly GREEN. In many cases they can tell you the exact spot in the woods your Bedell guitar comes from., how old the tree was, even what happened to the tree and how it was handled. Tell me another guitar company that can do that. This level of appreciation and intimate knowledge of a guitar really helps you become connected to your instrument on a whole new level.
Bedell Guitars come in several amazing acoustic models.
The Antiquity Series of Bedell Guitars actually leave me speechless. You simply will not find any other guitars like these. There are 2 models in the Antiquity series and both are made from extremely rare wood. The “Luck Strike” model sides and back are made from Honduran Mahogany, from a tree called “The Tree” that was found on the forest floor in 1965, it was estimated to have been 500 years old. The top of the guitar is made from The majestic Lucky Strike redwood tree which was salvaged from an old-growth forest of Northern California. The Lucky Strike also features a Ebony fingerboard and bridge.
The second guitar in the Antiquity Series is the Bedell Antiquity Milagro. This beautiful guitar sides and back are made from The Milagro tree, a “miraculous” Brazilian rosewood tree that is estimated to have germinated in the early 1600’s. The top of the guitar is made from a salvaged Sitka spruce hand picked by Tom Bedell, this Sitka Spruce tree is also 400 years old. the Bedell Antiquity Milagro also features a Ebony fingerboard and bridge.
