Bedell Guitars, a Seed-to-Song Journey

I have questions about your wood.  No more blood wood campaign.

Bedell Guitars takes action.  No more blood wood campaign.

Bedell tonewood is legally acquired, in accordance with all domestic and international regulations, including CITES and Lacey Act, and has verified supporting documentation. Bedell tonewood is ethically sourced from one of the following scenarios:

  1. Individual trees salvaged from the forest as dead/fallen or at the end of their lifecycle.
  2. Trees individually harvested in a manner that leaves the rest of the forest and ecological system as undisturbed as possible.
  3. Tonewood from a collection of “treasured tonewood,” fully compliant with all international regulations, and harvested either before the CITES convention of 1992 or before the wood species was listed under CITES.


Our wood partners share our commitment to preserving the forests and certify that the tonewood supplied conforms to the Bedell Tonewood Certification Project principles.  The Bedell wood management team verifies these claims and makes periodic site visits to confirm compliance. Additionally, the Bedell Wood Library code system tracks chain-of-custody and legal documentation for every piece of wood in our library.

Many of you share this respect and reverence for the connection between the woods of our forest, and our music making.  Each Bedell guitar has a story to share, each set of tonewoods in the Bedell Seed to Song Journals tells a fantastic journey of every guitar made.  Each Bedell guitar is ethically hand crafted in Bend, Oregon.  And with tonewoods consistent with the principles fo the Bedell Tonewood Certification Project.

Cordoba Guitars New GK Studio Negra at Kenwood Willis Music


The GK Studio Negra. 

Based off  its sister model, the GK Studio, the Cordoba GK Studio Negra  features a solid European Spruce top but with Indian rosewood back and sides to bring out a deeper and robust tone.  The contrasting maple binding and black ebony tuners add to this guitars’ overall beauty. A Fishman Presys Blend pickup comes installed, making this guitar a perfect gigging instrument. The all natural mosaic inlaid rosette gives it a traditional flamenco look. To top off the Flamenco look the GK Studio Negra comes with a clear Spanish golpeador.  And the  50mm width nut and slim neck make it an easy guitar to play.

Come to the Willis Music Kenwood location to play the GK Studio Negra  as well as the GK Studio guitar. Ask for Robert Falcon; 513-252-0445.
