Custom Dancing Bear Finish
Following the custom red, white and blue lightning bolt finish from the Grateful Dead DC, the Grateful Dead Bedford features the iconic multi-colored Dancing Bears marching up the body and onto the fingerboard.
Dancing Bear Inlays
Extending from the Grateful Dead Bedford's custom finish, Dancing Bears jive all the way up the ovangkol fingerboard—the kind of subtle detail Deadheads are accustomed to keeping an eye out for.
Duncan Designed HB-102 Single-Coil STK in Neck, HB-101 Humbucker in Bridge
The unique combination of a Duncan Designed single-coil stack in the neck position and humbucker in the bridge makes for pristine, balanced tone.
Push/Pull Speed Knobs
Push/pull tone knobs allow for easy coil-tapping, broadening your humbucker's range of tones to include spanky single-coil sounds.
Slim, Unfinished Neck
A slim, unfinished maple neck guarantees playability. No sticky hands, no wrist-ache—all comfort.
