Headed back to Savannah from Anaheim where we just wrapped up the 2017 NAMM Show! Shared time and music with Jody Espina at his Jody Jazz booth, Jim Fox, Luca di Luzio, and Dave Miner, among many others!
Benedetto Artist Howard Alden, who recently celebrated his 25th year with us, shared the stage with Anat Cohen as part of the 2017 Tucson Jazz Festival. Sublime musicianship!
Thanks to Denny Schreffler for the photo!

This GA-35 is certainly one of our most unique creations made to date! This custom order is from a guitar lover in British Columbia who asked for a standard GA-35 (chambered mahogany body with carved top) using extraordinary figured wood. This one incorporates a Buckeye Burl top and headstock with highly figured mahogany body and neck, black binding, gold hardware, and ebony fingerboard, tuning knobs and volume/tone knobs. We ordered the slab and cut and filled it specifically for this instrument.
