IT’S “BENNY” LONG WHILE

Posted .

s2384-bennycustomnat_fc8_robertguillou_121216Our 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.
