The price of gold has gone up, oh about 20% a year for the past for the past five years running. And while it is a pretty good investment, you can’t play it! So we decided to make a Gold BENNY model. Combine this superb design, incomparable Benedetto craftsmanship, and the versatility of solid chambered body, carved spruce top, and ebony appointments and you have a classic collectable. But don’t keep it in a vault. It is designed for gigging musicians who love the Benedetto 1 3/4″ neck & 25″ scale, but might need to rock out or conquer the blues next to an earsplitting B3. This one-off BENNY has a Gold finish with chrome A6 Pickups and Gotoh tuners. Signed and serialized by The King Midas of Jazz Guitars, Bob Benedetto himself.
