Andy™ (Discontinued Mar 2011)

The Andy is a ¾ scale archtop electric guitar that is perfect for either travel or serious youth guitarists. Not a toy, the guitar’s 23” neck scale features a solid carved spruce top and a solid carved maple back, with laminated maple sides. The guitar incorporates the same design features of its big brothers with an ebony fingerboard, fingerrest, tailpiece and bridge. A mini-humbucking pickup with volume and tone control is built into the top.

Includes Deluxe Padded Gig Bag

I love my Benedetto Andy. It is the perfect practice or travel jazz guitar, and especially well-suited for a female.  Plug it up and it has that big, warm, jazz sound.  And the amazing thing is, unlike so many other short scale guitars, this one notes true all the way up the neck. It’s fun, easy, and comfortable.  Bob successfully got it all into a small package, as only Bob Benedetto could.  SUSAN CARSON
