PREMIER BEDFORD ® SH NEW
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.
Contoured F-hole Window
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.
Satin Neck with Set Heel Joint
A slim, satin-finished maple set-neck guarantees exceptional playability and stability. No sticky fretting hand, no wrist-ache—all comfort.
Unique Three-Pickup Configuration
Refreshing the standard three-pickup/five-way blade configuration, the Premier Bedford SH features a Seymour Duncan Designed TE-104 in the neck and middle positions, while a MH-102 Mini-humbucker is nestled into the bridge—resulting in five incomparable, rich tones.
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.
