In the sixties, Rock ‘n Roll
changed the world,
revealing a passion for
expression through music.
Spirits were free and it seemed as if every town had a dance hall where local
bands would fill the air with their own special sounds. Spirit Lake, Iowa was no
different. Except among those crowding the local dance hall was Tom Bedell.
When Tom was just a kid, he got his first guitar, fueling his personal passion for
music. In 1964, at the age of 14, Tom wanted to share that passion by introducing his own line of Bedell acoustic guitars.
Though decades have passed since Tom strummed a chord on the very first Bedell Guitar, his passion still thrives in his custom
collection of premium Bedell Guitars. There are no shortcuts to handcrafting one of his instruments. Each section of wood is individually selected and matched. There are no laminates, just solid wood in stunning combinations. Ebony fingerboards and one-piece
mahogany necks are carefully shaped and sanded by hand. Meticulously crafted maple bindings hug every curve with perfection
and strength. Each Bedell Guitar is an incredible creation. Which is why every Bedell Guitar delivers such incredible sound.
