Bedell Discovery BDMCE-18-M Orchestra Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar - Matte/Natural The Bedell Discovery BDMCE-18-M Orchestra Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar is perfect for those on a budget seeking a performance quality orchestra guitar. It's ready to go wherever your music takes you, including the stage with its built-in Fishman Isys-T pickup/preamp. The BDDCE-18-M has a solid sitka spruce top. This is the most popular wood for guitar tops today. Sitka spruce produces an even, clear response from low to high tones. Known to improve with age, a sitka-top guitar should make a great companion for your musical journey. Bedell uses laminated mahogany for the back and sides. This works well for an orchestra model guitar with a sitka top to generate a strong bass with thick mid and treble tones. For stage performance the BDDCE-18 benefits from a Fishman Isys-T pickup/preamp system. The system features a single contour knob to dial in your tone. There's also a phase switch to help fight feedback and an onboard tuner.
