Deluxe Bedford SH
Introducing the Deluxe Bedford SH, a semi-hollow spin on our flagship solid-body and tonal dream machine. Featuring a sleek, modern f-hole design on the upper bout, the Bedford SH integrates a warm acoustic element into its three-pickup electronics configuration. The combination of two Seymour Duncan Five-Two’s in the neck and middle positions followed by a Seymour Duncan SM-1b mini-humbucker in the bridge creates a full-bodied tonal profile, while a 5-way blade makes tone selection simple. Now available in Matte Black, Matte Wine and Matte Rose Gold—only 50 pieces each, worldwide.
A reimagination of a classic shape, the Deluxe Atlantic is a powerful single-cutaway solid-body. Now strapped with the all-new Seymour Duncan Seth Lover A4 humbuckers and an ebony fingerboard, the Atlantic boasts deep, rich tones that can snap into crystalline single-coil sounds with push/pull coil-splitting tone knobs. A deep belly cut and thinner body depth keep the Atlantic lightweight, while a natural satin finish slim-C neck shape guarantees comfort. Now available in Matte Black, Matte Wine and Matte Rose Gold—only 50 pieces each, worldwide.
Emerging as a fan favorite in the solid-body collection, the Deluxe Brighton is a curvy double-cutaway built for performance. Featuring deep cutaways that provide easy access to the highest frets and a lightweight body design, the Brighton prioritizes the player in every sense. Stunning Seymour Duncan Seth Lover A4’s paired with a swamp ash body offer sweet vintage tone and endless sustain, while an ebony fingerboard with medium-jumbo frets on a natural satin neck make for premium feel. Now available in Matte Black, Matte Wine and Matte Rose Gold—only 50 pieces each, worldwide.
Revamped for 2020, the Deluxe SS reasserts itself as a stunning modern semi-hollow. All new Seymour Duncan Seth Lover A4 humbuckers offer a new level of depth and dimension in their rich, full-bodied tone while a standard three-way toggle switch and coil-splitting push/pull tone knobs allow for seamless tonal variation. Featuring satin finishes and an ebony fingerboard on a slim C-shape neck profile, the Deluxe SS is sonically, visually, and ergonomically entrancing. Now available in Matte Wine and Matte Rose Gold—only 50 pieces each, worldwide.
Re-designed for 2020, the Deluxe DC is a performance-driven double cutaway semi-hollow boasting sweet, crystalline tone. All new Seymour Duncan Seth Lover A4 humbuckers offer visceral depth and robust dimension while a standard three-way toggle switch and coil-splitting push/pull tone knobs allow for easy tonal variation. An ebony fingerboard paired with the DC’s 16-inch-wide semi-hollow body makes for remarkable sustain, while an optional D’Angelico Shield Tremolo offers ethereal vibrato. Available in Matte Wine and Matte Rose Gold—only 50 pieces each, worldwide.
Re-introducing the Deluxe 175, a dizzying display of modern aesthetics and vintage features. Hosting two Seymour Duncan Psyclone Vintage humbuckers and coil-splitting push/pull tone knobs, the 175 ranges from throaty rockabilly to feathery acoustic tones with ease. A fully-hollow sixteen-inch-wide and nearly three-inch-deep body paired with the D’Angelico Shield Tremolo offers waves of sustain, all while a slim neck profile and ebony fingerboard promise player-friendly comfort. Available in Matte Wine and Matte Rose Gold—only 50 pieces each, worldwide.
