Benedetto Artist/Educator Dan Sumner’s career is highlighted in the Bayou Life Magazine article.
Soft-spoken and reflective, Daniel Sumner is a talented, classically trained jazz guitarist, at home at Fort Sumner, his Garden District music studio in Monroe. A Benedetto guitar leans against the wall near his chair. He gestures toward the grand piano that sits in the middle of the studio. “That’s my sailboat,” he chuckles. “Courtesy of Hurricane Katrina.”

*** UPDATE! The natural Andy Elite has SOLD!
The man is multi-talented!!!
Congrats to Andy Paul, the namesake for our Andy Elite model! This week, he graduated from Savannah Country Day School and will soon be packing his bags for Emory University at Oxford.
Our Andy Elite Model (or “Andrew” for those of you recognizing the formality of the instrument) has a 12″ lower bout, 23″ scale. But Bob has selected his finest grades of cured European Maple for the back and sides, and European Spruce for the top. This is essentially a small version of our La Venezia.
We sold this beautiful natural Andy Elite yesterday from Bob’s Boutique. Check it out!
Just last week in London, two of Benedetto’s “Big P” Players, we call them, took the stage together – Howard Alden and Ulf Wakenius with Martin Taylor. We only wish we had video/audio from the evening to share, as we’re certain it was a fantastic night of music!
Happy Memorial Day 2016. Thankful for all who served, which includes our own Bob Benedetto and Howard Paul!
“All gave some, some gave all.”
