Crafted exclusively for the discriminating jazz traditionalist, the Benedetto Fratello is considered the benchmark archtop guitar. Featuring premium tonewoods imported from around the world, its beauty lies in the details. Custom–designed, mother–of–pearl stylized block inlays; Benedetto’s acclaimed binding on its European spruce top, maple neck and ebony fingerrest; and its cello–style ebony tailpiece are standard fare on this guitar. Even its S–6 suspended, mini–humbucking pickup has been designed to mount to the pickguard—keeping the top free and clean for superior tonality. As with all Benedetto models, the Fratello is built under Bob’s supervision—ensuring an inimitable instrument of the highest caliber.
