READY TO GO! (CORRECTION: ALREADY GONE)

When we scheduled this post on Friday we hoped someone might see it Monday morning and be enticed by its beauty. It turns out you have to be quick on the draw when our most popular model shows up in Bob’s Boutique… One lucky guitarist in California beat you to it (Don’t worry we’ll have more soon)!

It features a super comfortable 16″ x 2.5″ body with laminated spruce top, laminated maple back, and solid maple sides. Other standard features are 25″ scale, 1 3/4″ nut width, and A-6 pickup. Act quickly as these never last long! Head on over to Bob’s Boutique for details.

BONUS TRACK

Whenever we make demo videos we try a couple different tunes… so it’s time for B sides! Here is a quick version of All the Things You Are on the Ambrosia Maple 16-B we demonstrated a few weeks back.

CALIFORNIA DREAMING

This unbelievable example of a Bravo Deluxe is heading to California, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have it… It just means you get a chance to try it before you buy it by visiting our friends at Imperial Vintage Guitar in Sherman Oaks. Because we don’t have dealers, it’s rare to have a chance to try one of our instruments in the wild. Imperial Vintage Guitar have very generously offered us wall space which gives our West coast friends a chance to see and hear this beauty in person.

The non-standard, Light Antiqueburst finish has been an extraordinarily popular choice for our Bravo Deluxe model. This particular guitar is glammed up a little bit with Fratello motif position markers on the fretboard and a matching, inlaid Benedetto logo.

FLASHBACK TO A VERY COOL GUITAR

A very lucky customer ordered this stunning, custom Bambino Elite. It is being built with an incredible piece of fiddleback mahogany which was sourced from the Fiddleback Tree, a once-in-a-lifetime find according to our supplier. It exhibits the most intensely flamed mahogany we’ve ever seen. Only ten billets for archtop guitars were sourced from this tree.

WATCH WHAT HAPPENS


We don’t like to play favorites here at Benedetto… I’m sure we’d all have one of each model if we could. It might be worth noting, though, that both President/CEO, Howard Paul and Sales Manager, Jackson Evans do the bulk of their performing (hundreds of nights/year combined, normally) on the 16-B model. It’s the perfect gigging guitar with all of the expressiveness a carved archtop should have, but in a comfortable, compact package. We have two available on Bob’s Boutique!
