A BEAUTY ALL ITS OWN!

S2387 GA35 NAT_FC4_DavdiZaharik_011017This GA-35 is certainly one of our most unique creations made to date! This custom order is from a guitar lover in British Columbia who asked for a standard GA-35 (chambered mahogany body with carved top) using extraordinary figured wood. This one incorporates a Buckeye Burl top and headstock with highly figured mahogany body and neck, black binding, gold hardware, and ebony fingerboard, tuning knobs and volume/tone knobs. We ordered the slab and cut and filled it specifically for this instrument.

Check out the newly released “ManTis”

Check out this video clip from Benedetto Artist/Educator Lefteris Christofis‘ newly released album “ManTis.”

“ManTis” voyages through the musical landscapes of modern jazz, fusion, progressive rock, latin reshapes them with the modern minimalistic approach and presents them with a unique organic sound.

The polymorphic guitar sound floats above the dreamy melodies of the vibraphone, the earthshaking notes of the bass and the essential rhythmical style of the drums.

The album features Lefteris Christofis on guitars, Chico Freeman on saxophone, Dominique Di Piazza on bass, Jacques Marugg on vibraphone and Nikos Touliatos on drums.

You can buy the full album at CD Baby Music Store.
