THE LOSS OF OUR DEAR FRIEND

From Howard Paul, President and CEO of Benedetto Guitars and a close personal friend of Bucky Pizzarelli: “Very sad to learn of the loss of jazz guitar legend and longtime Benedetto Player Bucky Pizzarelli. He recently celebrated his 94th birthday, and is father to an entire family of great musicians including John, Martin and Mary Pizzarelli. It was one of life’s great honors to perform and travel with Bucky over the years, introduce him to my family and friends, and consider him an and idol and mentor. Deepest condolences to Ruth and family, and Bob and Cindy Benedetto for the loss of their longtime friend.”

This is an enormous loss for the Benedetto family. Our condolences to all the friends, family, and plentiful guitarists who were forever changed by his music.

OPULENCE ON THE WEEKEND

This newly minted 16-B has just arrived in Bob’s Boutique! As our most gig-able carved model in our most popular finish, this guitar surely won’t stick around very long! 16″ carved spruce top with solid maple back, sides and neck, 25″ scale, 1 3/4″ nut width, and a single A-6 pickup make this a superb instrument for the gigging pro, aspiring amateur, or very serious student.

CRAZY FOR COCOBOLO

Every once in a while Master Luthier, Damon Mailand sets aside time from our busy production schedule to build something extra special. In this case, we have an incredible oval-hole Sinfonietta made with unique cocobolo sides and back, western red cedar top, and Spanish cedar neck.

This one-of-a-kind, 16″, acoustic archtop also features roasted maple binding with custom purfling, mother of pearl accents, ebony appointments, and Waverly tuners with matching buttons.

The sound is incredibly unique, and responsive with a balanced low end, focused mid range, and subtle, never-piercing top end.

Contact jevans@benedettoguitars.com for more details or check out Bob’s Boutique.
