COOKING UP NEW RECIPES FOR BENEDETTO

Bob Benedetto and Katie Tait sharing a glass of wine in Bob’s kitchen during a recent trip to Ocala.

Wow!  What a true honor to be working as the Director of Marketing for Benedetto Guitars!  I have been a Savannah resident for thirteen years, most of which were spent in marketing at the Savannah Economic Development Authority (SEDA). While there, I had the privilege of working with Bob, Cindy, and Howard on “Project Archtop” in 2006, assisting in the location of Benedetto Guitars, Inc. to their present location in Savannah, Georgia.  Even my then four-year-old daughter, Sophie, got into the mix!  I was hooked and became a lifelong admirer of their exceptional craftsmanship.

Bob, Cindy, and Howard are the best of people, and I can’t thank them enough for this extraordinary opportunity to be a part of their family. I’m so glad to be back!
