When it comes to Benedetto Players Concerts, Napa Valley and Miner Wines, well, one concert just isn’t enough. So we’ve planned a special Benedetto Players Concert at the Napa Valley Jazz Society on August 13th, the Friday night before our Miner/Benedetto Release Party on August 14th…twice as nice! Cheers to Miner Family Vineyards for sponsoring!

Two of my favorite model: A custom Bambino Deluxe 7-string (with a spruce top and our amazing Autumnburst finish) rests next to a Bambino Deluxe, Natural, but with Fratello fingerboard inlays (hidden under the masking tape for now).
So ask yourself: What cool custom feature do you want on your Benedetto? 🙂
Benedetto Guitars is lucky (very!) to have a great jazz guitarist as its President and CEO – so he knows a thing or two about great jazz guitars!* 🙂
In addition to the day to day operations at BG, Howard maintains a full playing schedule: two of his upcoming performances include Hilton Head’s The Jazz Corner July 23 & 24 and the Coastal Jazz Society’s concert July 25th. (Both events with veteran jazz pianist George Mesterhazy.)

BG’s PME (you should know by now that’s Production Manager Extraordinaire!) Evan Ellis bends sides for a custom BRAVO DELUXE 7 Custom.
Production Manager Evan Ellis just finished binding the headstock on this custom Bambino Deluxe that will be one beautiful axe!
