A few years ago we updated the Benny specs to include a two piece stop tailpiece instead of a wrap around TonePros bridge. It took awhile but we have finally replaced the showroom Benny (pictured below) with an updated version. This is great news for one very lucky Benedetto enthusiast! We are proud to offer the previous showroom Benny (S1113) at a discount ($4k+S&H), used but being sold as new with case and warranty.
It is a superb specimen weighing a scant 6 1/4lbs and showing only very light wear from being played by visitors. 14 1/2″ body, 2″ depth, 25″ scale, 1 3/4″ nut, spruce top, chambered mahogany body and neck, and two A-6 pickups.
CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY as this guitar likely won’t stick around long!
This is a rare appearance for us! The Americana is our 17″ x 3″ carved archtop featuring select solid carved spruce top, maple back, sides and neck, and all ebony appointments with a built-in A6 pickup. Using the same pattern as our Manhattan model, we keep the Americana more affordable by borrowing our Bravo Deluxe binding package and headstock shape, parallel bracing with a built-in pickup, and a Bravo-style EPS tailpiece with ebony cap and metal bracket. This is a rare black finish for us, and the veneered back-of-headstock makes it a one-off. Light weight, woody and warm, acoustically responsive, and a super-comfortable 1-3/4″ x 25″ neck. Hardshell case included and available for immediate shipping!
Price: $11,000 (includes deluxe hardshell case).

Due to the imminent threat of Hurricane Irma to the coast of Georgia, we are closing up shop! Like last year’s preparedness when Hurricane Matthew came through, we will have all of our guitars in cases…off of the floor and walls. And, most importantly, all our employees will have a chance to evacuate/take cover with their loved ones! We hope to be back up and running on Tuesday.
Please keep us in your thoughts as this storm bears down on us.

A beautiful Natural Bravo Deluxe! This lovely 16″ x 2 1/2″ laminated top and back has nicely flamed back, sides and one-piece neck, and a flawless super straight-grained spruce top.
The B-6 pickup and ebony components make for a striking contrast to the natural nitrocellulose lacquer finish! Available for immediate shipment!
