Our first interview at the 2018 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA was with Tom Bedell of Bedell Guitars. You may also know Tom as Founder of Two Old Hippies, LLC, a music and clothing (“lifestyle”) store in Nashville, TN, as well as owner of Breedlove Stringed Instruments and Weber Fine Acoustic Instruments.
Beyond the impressive craftsmanship and great sound, Bedell Guitars have found a unique niche in the community of acoustic guitar manufactures. They ensure that no clear-cut trees will ever be used for their guitars. To go a step further, they offer a history of the tone woods used in each guitar from where the tree was harvested and what its lifespan was, as represented in the “Seed-to-Song” Journals that accompany every guitar. They also include the registrations and certifications that “assure full compliance with all international regulations and treaties, including CITES and the Legacy Act.” So if you’re an environmentally conscious guitar buyer, you should have plenty of peace of mind when buying Bedell.

The Classic Folk
Tom Bedell was kind enough to speak with us at the Bedell booth about his new line of acoustic guitars, the Classic Folk.
Top Wood: Honduran Mahogany
Side & Back Wood: Honduran Mahogany
Neck Wood: Honduran Mahogany
The Revolution Series is offered in three size options: Orchestra, Dreadnought, and Parlor. As an owner of one of these instruments, I can attest to its beautiful tone. The sound is warm, deep, rich, and well balanced throughout the range of the instrument.
Top Wood: Adirondack Spruce
Side and Back Wood: Cocobolo
Neck Wood: Maple
