MAKE WAY FOR THE CREW!

Jose Remi shoot 050715

The video production crew, that is! Jose Remi Productions is in the middle of shooting a film for Benedetto Guitars that will shed light on our process of guitar making. Stunning video will be supplemented with various interviews of our luthiers as well as our President Howard Paul. The finished film will help us show everyone who can’t come by the shop to see for themselves (tours by appointment only) the extraordinary craftsmanship that goes into every Benedetto guitar.

We can’t wait to share it with you!
