GA-35™

The GA-35 is Benedetto’s response to countless requests by players who want the functionality and versatility of a modern double-cutaway without sacrificing the magic we build into our more traditional jazz guitars and chambered solid bodies.   The GA-35 might seem like a logical addition to our model lineup, but it took years of discussion, research and planning to arrive at this Bob Benedetto-designed fusion/blues/rock/jazz instrument.   We’ve incorporated the exceptional appointments that make us who we are: very select woods, best-of-class components, hand sprayed and buffed nitrocellulose lacquer finish, and the finest craftsmanship in the business – all made in Savannah, Georgia.   The solid core, chambered mahogany body makes for a feedback resistant, long sustaining and lightweight slim-contoured body.  The highly flamed maple carved top provides defined and responsive tone.  The dual Benedetto A-6 pickups produce balanced output range from warm bluesy lows to biting Nashville highs, and everything in between.
