Deadheads Rejoice! The Premier Grateful Dead Bedford Has Arrived for Your Jamming Pleasure!
The D'Angelico Premier Grateful Dead Bedford is both a sought-after Grateful Dead themed collectible guitar, and a performance driven instrument that you will never want to stop playing. Exceptionally balanced and lightweight, the Premier Bedford features a distinctive modern offset basswood body with glossy finish and iconic "dancing bears" pattern traveling up the body and across the fingerboard as mother-of-pearl inlays.
The thin, soft ‘c’ profile, maple neck sports a 22-fret, 14" radius ovankol fretboard with iconic dancing bear inlays and is extremely comfortable and easy to play. The action could not be lower nor the neck faster, and the neck joint is perfectly contoured to allow easy access to the higher register of the neck, making the Premier Bedford perfect for just about any style of playing.
The hardware and electronics include Seymour Duncan designed passive pickups, including a stacked single coil in the neck position and a humbucker in the bridge, with a coil tap feature and 3-way switching. Thanks to a Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, and Grover Rotomatic "Stairstep" tuners, you will enjoy stable tuning no matter how long the jam session stretches on
