Master Finisher Larry Perkins focuses on the very detailed work of scraping the binding of a newly colored Benedetto. Equipped with a razor blade, glasses, magnifying loop, and most likely his favorite talk radio program.
Larry is extraordinarily passionate about his work and always proud of his highly specialized role at Benedetto.
Yesterday afternoon we had two distinguished visitors tour the shop – USA Today Tech Journalist/Podcaster/Guitarist Jefferson Graham from LA, and his brother jazz and blues pianist Jez Graham from Atlanta. Following Jared’s tour of the shop, Jefferson interviewed Howard Paul for a podcast segment on The USA Today TechTalk program.
We were delighted to host a guitar seminar and tour of the Benedetto floor this past Friday for these area students.
Our President Howard Paul always enjoys these opportunities to pass along his passion and expertise of the jazz guitar — its history, architecture, and performance characteristics.

The indefatigable Joe Negri! At 90 years old, he’s Pittsburgh’s most beloved jazz guitarist and jazz guitar educator. Joe’s currently back in the studio working on a solo CD, from where the photo was taken.
Joe plays a custom 16″ Benedetto and an Andy model. Perhaps the Benedetto is part of his secret to such a long and distinguished career? Couldn’t hurt!
