BACK IN THE CAVE FOR YOUNTVILLE LIVE!

Posted .

Yountville March 2017Howard Paul got to spend time last week at the Miner Family Winery in Napa for Yountville Live! He presented his Master Class explaining the physics and architecture behind manufacturing the finest jazz guitars in the world (our’s!) to an extraordinary group guitar-loving wine-loving executives. Dave Miner also spoke to how his extraordinary wine is produced. Both the music and wine were enjoyed by all!

PAT MARTINO TAKES OVER CALIFORNIA

Posted .

S2398 PatMartino TransBlk_FV8_ZeroChan_031717Benedetto Artist Pat Martino still tours the world as one of jazz genre’s most iconic and influential players. For the past six years he’s been inseparable from his Benedetto PM Model (note – we saw him perform just this weekend in Napa!). This just completed Translucent Black finish over flame maple top is on its way to a guitarist in California. It is built and setup exactly the same as Pat’s personal instruments – handmade in Savannah. Custom orders available with about a 7-month lead-time. Photos by Stephanie Ward.
