Our Benny’s a beautifully compact solid body electric guitar…a knock out! This custom variation is headed home to Robert out on the west coast. Providing a wide spectrum of classic and modern tones, every Benny starts with a select carved spruce top and chambered mahogany body. This custom model has an extra clean look sans the usual binding package, natural finish, and wrap-around tailpiece. A warm and responsive guitar, with twin A–6 humbucking pickups and custom switching system, its tone replicates our carved top instruments. Photos by Stephanie Ward.
The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year…especially when smiling Bob Benedetto is baking up a batch especially for us of his mouth watering homemade biscotti. Just arrived today, and they’re going fast. YUMMY!
Many thanks, Bob and Cindy, from all of us here in Savannah!
Winter is here, and we’re headed south chasing warmer weather! This week, Benedetto CEO Howard Paul and new Benedetto Artist Brian Nova will represent the USA at the 2016 Havana International Jazz Festival. Members of their band include music greats Shelly Berg, Lawrence Hobgood, Gary Novak, and band leader Terry Miller. In addition to performances, they will conducts workshops and seminars in Cuban music schools. We’ll be sure to share pictures with you after they return!
His 1995 custom 16″ Benedetto was a predecessor to our very popular 16-B model. (Chris also plays a Bambino model.)

This Bambino Deluxe maintains the dimensional specifications of the Bambino model but adds modern sound holes, a flamed maple veneer top, gold hardware, and a deluxe binding package to the body, neck and headstock. Upgraded mother of pearl Benedetto logo and inlay. The sound holes enhance the acoustic volume to the unplugged instrument and give the guitar a more traditional archtop look with only a single pickup placed in the rhythm position. To show off the beautiful flamed top, this instrument is available only in Natural and Honey Blonde finishes.
