WE CAME THROUGH UNSCATHED!

bgWe’ve inspected Benedetto Guitars and despite a lot of destruction and downed trees all around, our building came out without a problem! All of our staff’s prep work and a solid building protected our work in progress and equipment. Waiting to hear from our staff, most of whom evacuated. With some luck and a rapid response from Georgia Power, we will be back in business as soon as we have power and everyone can get SAFELY home to Savannah! Thanks for all the good thoughts!!!
