Anyone own a Bedell Acoustic?

It's been 11 years since I have bought an acoustic. Mine bit the dust about 6 months ago and I still have not replaced it. I have been doing way too much homework on a new guitar and I keep coming to Bedell my mind. Although I have never played one, closest dealer 2 hours away and I have not called to see if they have any.

Wondering if there are any owners of Bedell here that can give me their opinion? I would not buy online, I'll drive to the dealer but 2 hour drive there then 2 hours back equals (drum roll please) 4 hours in my damn car!

No experience with that brand.

When you say, "bit the dust", what happened?

Re: Anyone own a Bedell Acoustic?

Old Ovation. Too much time in a house with a wood stove, top cracked, continued with this for some time. Then neck started to have the strangest high spot around 15th fret and a twist. On "more than normal" dry days guitar wood have maybe 10-15 dead frets. I would guess the lack of movement on the composite back gives added movement to the top. Give it a week of rain guitar played perfect. After many attempts with humidity control for years I gave up. I did much research on this matter (proper humidity) and did not want to replace. I play electric 90% more than acoustic so it was not the biggest deal but now guitar is gone.

Anyway, I now need a new acoustic.
