Benedetto Players Guild JazzMastersConcert LA NAMM 2000

Nearly 18 years ago! One of our all-time favorite memories of the Benedetto Players/Guild JazzMasters Concert sponsored by Fender Musical Instruments at the LA NAMM Show 2000.

Front: Randall Kremer (Smithsonian Institution), Johnny Smith & Bruce Bolen

Back row: Roy McDonald, Bob Benedetto, Howard Paul & Bill Doyle

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HOWARD PAUL!

Posted .

Happy birthday to our fearless leader, Howard Paul! A lifelong musician, this guy picked up his first guitar when he was just four-years old. After many years spent burning the candle at both ends, pursuing simultaneous careers in jazz guitar and business, he joined forces with Bob Benedetto, combining everything he loved. That passion for archtop jazz guitars, particularly Benedettos, shows every day. We are forever grateful to have him leading our team!

Happy birthday, Howard!!!
May 2017 be your best year yet!

WORTH READING

Posted .

Worth Magazine featured Savannah in its Nov/Dec issue, and Benedetto was included!

A big thank you to our friends over at Visit Savannah for including us in Worth’s tour of Savannah!

Be sure to read the full article HERE!

“Bronx-born jazz lover Robert Benedetto founded this now iconic company in 1968 after experimenting with wood taken from his family’s kitchen table. In the 50 years since, Benedetto guitars have earned a reputation as the gold standard for jazz musicians. That’s largely because the guitars are meticulously made by hand by a small team that shares the founder’s passion. It’s a painstaking process, so Benedetto makes only a few hundred guitars a year, but the results justify the scarcity: Hearing these guitars will make you feel like you’re in a smoky club off a dark alley listening to the music of infinite invention.”

THESE TICKETS WILL GO LIKE HOT CAKES!
