4 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "My first Bedell and I am very impressed..."
Overall: I bought this acoustic-electric guitar as a back-up to my high end Alvarez AAA... What I found was a guitar that surprised my ears and hands as soon as I got it out of the box... The guitar has great tonal projection and a clean/crisp - tight/bright sound to it with the bass tones not as obvious but there is still a good blend of tonal quality.. I have owned several guitars in this quality/price range and this model blows them away in sound and playability. The action and intonation were right on out of the box and no adjustments were required to enjoy the guitar. Fret dressing is good and smooth which enhances the feel of the neck.. One reason I really enjoy the guitar is the matte finsh that it has over the body and neck... It makes the neck easier to navigate and the sound projection greater I think.. Just a personal preference I know - but it adds to this guitar... The fishman electronics get the job done - but lack an EQ to really dial in... Overall it sounds great and I would recommend the guitar to anyone who wants a nice low to mid-range quality guitar that sounds and plays great... In my opinion this model is better than most of its competition.. On a final note - the gig bag that comes with the guitar is not a good protector - it is pretty thin and not well padded... Make sure you get something a bit more sturdy to shell this instrument...

"Bedell BDDCE-18m Acoustic Electric"
Overall: I found this guitar had very good sound, plugged in or not I'm glad I picked it up it was the only Bedell in the store. I didn't take the Gig Bag as it was to thin to protect the guitar. Only adjustment that I will need to make is lower the saddle as I find the strings a little to high off the fret board other wise a great find.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
