Boutique New York guitar makers, D’Angelico have teamed up with a Grateful Dead icon, creating the Deluxe Bob Weir Bedford. Striking in sound and look, it combines retro elegance with innovative tonal options.
D’Angelico has released the Deluxe Bob Weir Bedford. It mixes a striking retro aesthetic with the tonal signature of the Grateful Dead legend.
The guitar is fitted with two stacked Seymour Duncan P-90 pickups, with a Lollar Blonde single coil in the middle. This configuration is at the heart of “Weir’s concept of a bright and clear tonal powerhouse.”
Interestingly, alongside the standard 5-way blade for pickup selection, there’s an added blender pot to mix in whichever pickup isn’t selected.
Buildwise, it features a solid basswood body, with a maple and walnut set through neck, topped off with a pau ferro fingerboard.
