The jazz guitar community is a relatively small one, and it always hurts to lose one of the great players too soon. Rick Stone passed away after a difficult but very brave battle, leaving a grieving family and wide circle of musical friends. Our President Howard Paul last spent time with him at the International Wes Montgomery Jazz Guitar Awards in NYC, where they enjoyed the next generation of fine guitarists, and talked about their mutual love of all things jazz guitar. From all of us at Benedetto Guitars, we salute Rick’s talent and dedication, will continue to enjoy his recording and video legacy, and extend our profound sorrow to his family and close friends in the NYC guitar community.
Just finished and ready to play, the beautiful antique burst Bambino, adorned with the 40th Anniversary logo (only one of 40 that we made in 2008)! As its name implies, the Bambino is a baby in size compared to its 17″ flagship brothers…but with a big voice. Its lightweight and compact 14 ½” body is easily manageable in airport traffic or taxis. It features a laminated maple top and back, a maple neck shaped for playing comfort as only a Benedetto can be. With two gold plated Benedetto A–6 pickups, it’s all you’ll ever need!

This antiqueburst model is available for immediate sale in Bob’s Boutique — $5,000 includes hard shell case.
Guitars come to Luthier Rick Cervone for final assembly from finishing and buffing, and he then builds them out – putting on hardware and wiring, polishing the fretboards, installing strings, and all other manners of set-up. When the guitars leave final assembly, they are ready for our artists and customers to play and enjoy!
As you can see, we have several that are “almost to the finish line!” Several of these guitars are destined for Bob’s Boutique, too, so they’ll be up for grabs soon! Interested? Contact Jared Stubbs!
