The Bedell 1964 Parlor is constructed from a time-honored tonewood combination of Adirondack Top and Honduran mahogany, crafted similarly to the way guitars were built fifty years ago. The Bedell 1964 Parlor brings back the spirit of the music we all love. The wood used in the Adirondack Top soundboards is salvaged from downed trees in Alaska. Adirondack Top has been the primary top wood for U.S.A.-made instruments for many decades — it is strong, light, and gives an extended harmonic content that nearly equals the power of Adirondack spruce. The 1964 Parlor’s Honduran mahogany back and sides deliver a balanced, resonant tone with a thick bottom end, rich midrange, and a controlled, warm top end. As always, no forests were clear-cut to build Bedell 1964 guitars.
