Available for the first time as a standard model in the Deluxe Series, the Deluxe Bedford SH in Desert Gold is a semi-solid spin on our flagship solid-body. Featuring two Seymour Duncan Five-Two's in the neck and middle positions followed by a Seymour Duncan SM-1b mini-humbucker in the bridge, the SH offers a full-bodied yet remarkably articulate tonal profile, while a 5-way blade makes tone selection simple. Featuring a sleek, modern f-hole design on the upper bout, the Bedford SH integrates a warm acoustic element into its unique three-pickup electronics configuration. Now available in Desert Gold, Black, and Matte Walnut with a six-point Wilkinson tremolo.
Contoured F-hole Window
For an added edge of acoustic warmth to its three-pickup configuration, the Deluxe Bedford SH features a contoured F-hole over its oversized body chamber, perfectly blending the tonal worlds of solid-bodies and semi-hollows.
Grover Locking Tuners
Locking tuners from Grover guarantee stable tuning—while also saving you time when changing strings.
Unique Three-Pickup Configuration
Refreshing the standard three-pickup/five-way blade configuration, the Deluxe Bedford SH features a USA Seymour Duncan STR-52-1 in the neck and middle positions, while a SM-1b Mini-humbucker is nestled into the bridge—resulting in five incomparable, rich tones.
With a bright edge for greater articulation and smooth sustain, ebony fingerboards now grace Deluxe Series solid bodies. Featuring a modern radius and medium jumbo fretwire from Jescar for unparalleled control and tone.
An alder body offers full-bodied tone that's articulate, yet slightly warmer than swamp ash.
