DON’T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT…

pat-martino-oct-16“A fine guitar, from a great luthier is designed to remain neutral, and yet provide all that’s necessary for an ongoing relationship. Its visual beauty, a continuous reminder of how it originally hypnotized, and how it will always do the same. Its balance, unquestionable, its endurance outlasting, its adaptation, … like a fluid that takes the shape of what it’s creatively poured into. Bob Benedetto thank you, that’s what this instrument means to me.”   ~Pat Martino

HURRICANE MATTHEW UPDATE

matthew-aftermathBenedetto Guitars reestablished power at 6PM Oct 10 and we will be back to building guitars this morning! Things might be a little slow as we get back to work, as some of our employees still wait for power restoration and deal with hurricane damage to our area’s homes, neighborhoods, and schools. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks to CEMA, Savannah Chatham County Police and the folks from Georgia Power for getting us back to work!

WE CAME THROUGH UNSCATHED!

bgWe’ve inspected Benedetto Guitars and despite a lot of destruction and downed trees all around, our building came out without a problem! All of our staff’s prep work and a solid building protected our work in progress and equipment. Waiting to hear from our staff, most of whom evacuated. With some luck and a rapid response from Georgia Power, we will be back in business as soon as we have power and everyone can get SAFELY home to Savannah! Thanks for all the good thoughts!!!

Sinfonietta Nylon Strings Oval Hole

s2376-sinfoniettablonde_lbl1_daveminer_092716This very custom instrument is one of only a handful of nylon string archtops produced by Benedetto over the last ten years. Based on our 16” x 3” non-cutaway Sinfonietta body, this beautiful and extremely lightweight guitar features a thinly carved, arched European spruce top with modified fan bracing; European maple back and side; a Spanish cedar neck with slotted headstock and 1-7/8” nut; dark wood binding throughout; classical frets; ebony tailpiece and bridge with a Barbera Piezo bridge pickup with volume while in soundhole; and a traditional blonde finish.
