EIGHT YEARS AND COUNTING

Eight years ago last week (May 28th, to be precise) Bob Benedetto and Howard Paul began our collaboration with Pat Martino with a road trip from Savannah to Philadelphia and a car full of various Benedetto models for Pat to try out. We narrowed it down to a Benny, and then spent a year or so fine tuning it into the now Pat Martino Model.

Two legendary names in jazz guitar!
