The Bedell Angelica is a masterpiece finger style acoustic guitar designed for the finger style player that is looking to experience clarity, fullness, warmth, and unparalleled beauty. Highly figured east indian rosewood paired with old growth sunken cedar helps create the clarity and warmth all finger stylist’s seek out. To help create the finger style response of the Angelica we added a 12 Fret to the body neck and an extended bridge width. The extended bridge width will increase the strings ability to vibrate the top. The extra vibration of the top paired with the increase in the depth of the body deliver the breadth and nuance to your music that you would expect from such a stunning instrument.

For the timeless folk-rock sound that defined an entire generation, look no further than the Bedell Coffee House Dreadnought.

There is something striking about the sound of rosewood paired with Adirondack spruce… when strummed, the Coffee House guitars take you right back to that moment in time when music was changing forever, when coffee houses were a radical, safe place for youth who wanted to change the world, and who believed in equality, justice, love and authentic self-expression.

Tom Bedell designed the Revere series guitars for one reason and one reason only: to offer the world’s most talented musicians the finest instruments possible, made from ethically sourced heritage tonewoods, to inspire and illuminate the music they were born to create.
The Bedell Revere Orchestra pairs naturally seasoned Brazilian rosewood and hand-selected Adirondack spruce for the ultimate in projection, articulation, and balance. A handcrafted koa inlay accents the three-piece back from Brazilian rosewood trees that were acquired by our Spanish wood partner over 50 years ago and aged in an ideal climate near Madrid.
To enable the legacy sound of the Revere Orchestra, each perfectly cured rosewood back-and-side set is paired with the stiffest Adirondack spruce soundboards in order to allow for the thinnest, lightest top possible for maximum responsiveness. Together they offer the artist incredible opportunities for powerful, nuanced expression.
The Revere Orchestra is equipped with the PowerMix Pure XT system from K&K Sound: an electronics package that has earned the respect of players worldwide, and offers the purest sound possible.
All Bedell Guitars come with a hardshell case.

We did it! We have taken the densest tonewood – it actually sinks in water – and found magic music wood. Cocobolo is twice the density of mahogany so when guitar builders use it to the same dimension, the instruments are heavy and not responsive. We have sanded our backs to a specified weight achieving a frequency response that has proven to be incredible. Maybe even more robust than Brazilian rosewood which is in the same species family. Our Revolution Dreadnought has a huge sound, dynamic bass, surprising sustain…it just sounds and looks beautiful.
The hard rock maple neck is also part of the magic. Hard maple is significantly denser than Honduran mahogany. With the compound taper dovetail neck joint connecting the one-piece maple neck to the cocobolo body - the sound energy is alive.
To top it off, we selected an old-age stiff Adirondack spruce top to drive the sound. Of course the tonewoods are Hand Tuned so the frequencies of the back are several half steps higher than the top and the bracing and tone bars have been carved to make sure the entire surface is tuned to the same frequency throughout.
The Revolution is an incredible sounding dreadnought. Additionally, the top and neck burst accentuate the dynamic coloring of the cocobolo and the turquoise accents are just right.
