HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAMON!

Damon Mailand Benedetto Guitars 3-13-14 SWard photo with 2 Bambino DlxsWishing Master Luthier Damon Mailand a very happy birthday!!!

When Luthiers International recommended Damon Mailand to Benedetto Guitars as our first Savannah hire in 2006, the endorsement was so strong that we couldn’t help but question its sincerity. What we found (when Damon drove across the United States for a face-to-face interview) was in Bob’s opinion, perhaps the next generation’s greatest guitar maker.   Benedetto hired Damon immediately as our first shop employee, and placed him in nearly every position in the workshop while personally training him to become his apprentice.   Damon worked side-by-side with Bob, eventually taking over Bob’s own workbench and inheriting his personal chisels. Today Damon carries on the greatest traditions established by Benedetto and has personally built the personal instruments of both Bob Benedetto and CEO Howard Paul.

GYPSY DREAM

NeilWe are delighted to see our most recently completed custom guitar already out on a gig! Here Damon Mailand stops in on Neil L. performing on his brand new custom Gypsy Nylon 7-String. We’ll feature photos of this new guitar in the next few days.

“It has the sustain and volume of the best flat tops and classicals. The bass notes speak like an old dreadnaught. It also has something extra: the punch, clarity, and note separation of the best carved archtops. And it has the understated beauty of the classicals too. Wow!!!!” ~Neil
