Manufacturer's Description

A Speedy Offset Offering Bold, Crispy Tone

The Bedford SH—previously only offered as a Deluxe Limited Edition model—is now available in the Premier Series. Featuring a sleek, modern f-hole design on the upper bout, the Bedford SH integrates a warm acoustic element into a three-pickup electronics configuration that offers a bold variety of tones. The combination of two Duncan Designed single-coils in the neck and middle positions followed by a Duncan Designed mini-humbucker in the bridge creates a uniquely bold, but familiarly spanky tonal palette while a 5-way blade makes tone selection simple. Available in Oxblood, Black Flake and Sky Blue with a six-point tremolo.

One-of-a-Kind Design

For an added edge of acoustic warmth to its three-pickup configuration, the Premier Bedford SH features a contoured F-hole over its oversized body chamber, perfectly blending the tonal worlds of solid-bodies and semi-hollows.

Unique Three-Pickup Configuration

Refreshing the standard three-pickup/five-way blade configuration, the Premier Bedford SH features two tele-style pickups in the neck and middle positions, while a mini-humbucker is nestled into the bridge, resulting in five incomparable, rich tones.

Slim, Satin-finished Set Neck

No matter the player, no matter the hands, a C-shape neck and 14-inch fingerboard radius makes for supreme playability free of wrist-ache. No sticky fretting hand, no wrist-ache—all comfort.

Something New

Since its debut, the Bedford SH has carved out its own unique territory in the world of three-pickup solid-bodies.
