Our Master Finisher Larry Perkins loves his job, and it shows! Not only in his personality, but also in the superb quality of the “work” he does.
Here Larry is spraying a custom Bravo Deluxe. Sure to be another beauty!
We’re all over this summer heat, right? How about let’s daydream of cooler days…AUTUMN…with these variations on our autumn burst finish.
Clockwise from the upper left: GA-35, Bravo, Bambino Deluxe, and Pat Martino models.
The jazz guitar community is a relatively small one, and it always hurts to lose one of the great players too soon. Rick Stone passed away after a difficult but very brave battle, leaving a grieving family and wide circle of musical friends. Our President Howard Paul last spent time with him at the International Wes Montgomery Jazz Guitar Awards in NYC, where they enjoyed the next generation of fine guitarists, and talked about their mutual love of all things jazz guitar. From all of us at Benedetto Guitars, we salute Rick’s talent and dedication, will continue to enjoy his recording and video legacy, and extend our profound sorrow to his family and close friends in the NYC guitar community.
