GA35x4We’ve made about 20 GA-35 models since we launched the prototype in January 2014. Customers have enjoyed testing master finisher Larry Perkins‘ remarkable color pallet! Clockwise, starting from the upper left, we have our natural, autumnburst, transblack, and antiqueburst finishes.

We are working on a few GA-35 models that are slated for Bob’s Boutique, but you might want to place a custom order now for delivery by October of this year.

CUSTOM MAHOGANY “BEN-BINO”

S2320 BennyNATCustom_FV11_TroyCook_020216This is a highly unusual collaborative piece that took several years to come to fruition! A customer contacted us and asked if we would be willing to build an instrument with some coveted, highly figured mahogany that had been in his possession for many years. He’d built his own instrument with some of it, and had used some for other specialized projects, but he really wanted it incorporated into his dream Benedetto. We took receipt of the wood and stored it in our climate controlled drying room for a time to make sure it was stable, then used it to produce the carved top of this spectacular “Ben-bino” Model! Using a Benny body made of ribbon-figured African mahogany and a mahogany neck, we carved the customer’s mahogany for the top, and included Bambino-style sound holes, two black A6 Benedetto Pickups and black tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece. The result is a stunning, versatile and lightweight chambered solid body Benedetto with a great story!
