Andy Elite frontAndy Elite backAndy Elite sideWe’ve woven this dream guitar into Damon’s busy workbench schedule: a one of a kind Andy Elite Model featuring a hand carved 12″ x 3″ body and our short 23″ scale. The top is X-braced sitka spruce, and back, sides and neck are African mahogany. It will have miniature floating humbucking pickup, and ebony bridge, tailpiece and fingerrest. It will remain unbound.

This won’t be around long, so if you are interested contact for pricing and delivery schedule.

Hear a demo of our Andy Elite below:

We are delighted to share this wonderful video documentary SESC TV in Brazil about our great friend and Benedetto Player Chico Pinheiro. Even if you don’t understand Portuguese, you’ll love the beautiful music and lyrical language.

We are crossing our fingers that we’ll see Chico in Napa on August 15 for the Miner Family Winery’s 9th release of the Benedetto Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon!

Roger LutzgoWe love it when we get photos from our players, and this morning we received this GREAT shot of Benedetto Players Club member Roger Latzgo with his Manhattan.

“Accompanied by piano and guitar, Roger travels his musical road with a style called ethnofunkology–a unique blend of folk music and jazz. Stops along the way include Rutgers College and Lehigh University, Prague, and New York, all the while performing in palaces and embassies, castles, wine cellars and beer gardens. In his repertoire are songs of celebration, adventure and triumph: music that explores the resonance of life.”

If you play a Benedetto, and you haven’t joined the Players Club yet, you can do so HERE.
