We recently added Mark Strickland to our stable of “Benedetto players,” whom we featured HERE on our website.
Mark is a guitarist out of Pittsburgh, PA, who names Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Joe Pass as his influences.
We’ll be joining him in Pittsburg in December (details forthcoming). We’ll be sure to plan an event for our Benedetto Players Club members while we’re there. If you own a Benedetto and haven’t yet registered for our Benedetto Players Club, you can do so HERE.
This week, we’re headed to the Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival near Kalispell, Montana. On Thursday we’ll move on to Hamilton, Montana for a few days. Howard will be traveling with several Benedettos including an Americana, Pat Martino Signature Model, & a GA-35!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are in the neighborhood and want to try one!
The thirty semi-finalists of the Wes Montgomery International Jazz Guitar Competition have been named. Of these, five will be announced as the finalists on September 1st.
The winner will receive our Benedetto Pat Martino Signature Model guitar. Lucky duck!
To check out the thirty, go HERE!
From 2012, Master Finisher Larry Perkins inspects the blue hue of Stefan Gaspar’s 18′ CREMONA Custom, inspired by Scott Chinery’s “La Cremona Azzurra” that commemorated the Blue Guitar Exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution 1997/98.
The winner of the Wes Montgomery International Jazz Guitar Contest by Resonance Records will not only receive $5,000, but also this sleek black Pat Martino Signature Model guitar, which we just completed.
The competition will be judged, in part, by Pat himself in New York City this October, and from the online submissions, which you can hear HERE, the winner will be well-deserving!
A big THANK YOU to Greg Lamy for sharing with us this awesome shot of him and his Benedetto Benny on stage in Brazil!
Remember, if you have any photos to share with us with your “Benedetto On Stage,” we would love to share them!
Send them to email@example.com.
