Donato has appeared with top local and national artists, as well as leading many of his own groups in the United States, Europe and the Caribbean.

VIRGINIA IS FOR LOVERS…OF BENEDETTOS!

S2250 PatMartinoBLK_FV2_EarlRexrode_041615This black-on-black Pat Martino Signature model is finished and packed and ready to ship to its new home in Virginia! We take tremendous pride in adhering to the very exact specifications Bob Benedetto and Pat developed for Pat’s own personal guitar when we build each new Pat Martino Signature model, BUT we also give players the opportunity to customize. In the case of this guitar, we added a Piezo pickup system to the bridge and modified the electronic to the customer’s specifications.

If you’re interested in owning a Benedetto, plan ahead…orders take about 8 months to build.

OPEN FOR BUSINESS

Gear Store2015 has been a year of change at our shop! The addition of Jared Stubbs and Katie Tait in January kicked off several office swaps/renovations, and those changes have recently culminated with the opening of a physical Gear Store. Now, when a group or individual comes for a tour, they can purchase Benedetto items, like shirts, pick-ups, strings, guitar straps, luggage tags, gig bags, a Bob Benedetto signed copy of Making an Archtop Guitar, picks, polishing cloths, axe mats, etc.  Most of these items can also be purchased online at our virtual Gear Store.

We look forward to continuing to expand our lines of Benedetto branded items!
