We were lucky enough to be paid a visit today by one of our Benedetto Players, Artist/Educator Barry Greene.

With monster chops and a soulful feel, Barry stands out amongst academia as a Professor of Jazz Guitar at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville where he has taught since 1995.  So, who better to record an audio demo of our GA-35?!

Barry truly defies the adage that those who can’t, teach!

DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT!

JJG Amp ReviewIn the most recent February 2015 issue, Just Jazz Guitar magazine reviewed the Benedetto Carino 10″ amplifier.

Dr. Brandon Bernstein noted this was “one of the best solid-state amps I have ever heard….  is extremely easy to transport, lightweight, and yet, delivers a beautiful, thick warm sound.”

You can learn more about the features of the Carino 10″ and Carino 12″ at benedettoamps.com.

4Our Flagship 17″ x 3″ acoustic archtop with floating S6 pickup. This stunning example features a spectacular select European spruce top and highly flamed maple back, sides and neck. This is the quintessential modern archtop – X-braced, extremely lightweight, powerful and warm with a 25″ scale, 1-3/4″ nut, and all ebony appointments. It’s heading across the sea to Miki Musical Instruments in Japan.

SAME TALENT. SAME TRADITION. NEW GENERATION…NEW OFFICE!

Damon Mailand settles into his newly refurbished office at Benedetto Guitars

Bob Benedetto’s longtime apprentice, Master Luthier Damon Mailand got an office maker-over this week.  His role of training our luthier staff, carving magnificent arch tops at Bob’s personal workbench, and providing the quality control required a little extra space and some new furniture!

COOKING UP NEW RECIPES FOR BENEDETTO

Wow!  What a true honor to be working as the Director of Marketing for Benedetto Guitars!  I have been a Savannah resident for thirteen years, most of which were spent in marketing at the Savannah Economic Development Authority (SEDA). While there, I had the privilege of working with Bob, Cindy, and Howard on “Project Archtop” in 2006, assisting in the location of Benedetto Guitars, Inc. to their present location in Savannah, Georgia.  Even my then four-year-old daughter, Sophie, got into the mix!  I was hooked and became a lifelong admirer of their exceptional craftsmanship.

Bob, Cindy, and Howard are the best of people, and I can’t thank them enough for this extraordinary opportunity to be a part of their family. I’m so glad to be back!
