FLASHBACK FRIDAY: KNOT SO BAD

The celebrated Benedetto “Knotty Pine” guitar (serial #29293) in the Chinery Collection. (featured on page 6  in ‘Making an Archtop Guitar‘.)

Made from inferior tonewoods, riddled with small knots, weather checking and discoloration.

Per Bob: “I wanted to prove that a great sounding guitar could be made from ‘less than the best’ woods.”
