The new Paleo guitar from Bedell offers a Sitka spruce guitar top, which is perhaps the youngest tonewood of the guitar body, cut from a spruce log which was buried under a massive landslide approximately 2,850 years ago in Southeast Alaska.

They grayish-green hue of the wood is a result of being buried and submerged in the damp Alaskan soil for almost three thousand years. The oldest tonewood in this instrument dates back to the Paleozoic era. The back and sides are crafted from a prehistoric wood called Kauri, which grew some 50,000 years ago in what is today New Zealand.
