“To be 70 years young is sometimes far more cheerful and hopeful than being 40 years old.” ~ OWH

Congratulations to Benedetto Player Chip Henderson on the recent publication by Alfred Publishing of his book of Charlie Christian transcriptions, coinciding with the 2016 centennial birthday of the jazz guitar great. Per Chip, “the book is a collection of around 40 solos across ten songs, arranged by date and studio take. Presented so the reader can see how his musical ideas evolved over his time with the Goodman Sextet, the book also includes transcriptions from live radio broadcasts as well.” Bravo, Chip!
We’ve added another antiqueburst Bravo to Bob’s Boutique, this one with a slightly lighter burst! Our Bravo model is tastefully–detailed, rich and full–sounding thin–body that is easy to travel with, utilizing a lightweight laminated spruce top and flamed maple back construction, features a flamed maple neck, signature abalone floral inlay at the 12th fret and A–6 pickup. Beautiful antiqueburst finish! Includes hardshell case. $5,000

GA-35 Model by Benedetto Guitars!
“A fine guitar, from a great luthier is designed to remain neutral, and yet provide all that’s necessary for an ongoing relationship. Its visual beauty, a continuous reminder of how it originally hypnotized, and how it will always do the same. Its balance, unquestionable, its endurance outlasting, its adaptation, … like a fluid that takes the shape of what it’s creatively poured into. Bob Benedetto thank you, that’s what this instrument means to me.” ~Pat Martino

This weekend, our master luthier extraordinaire Damon Mailand will be in San Diego at the Fretboard Summit. He’ll join a panel discussion and have our Bambino Elite with him for demo. Take a look at the Summit’s preview below.
This beautiful Pat Martino Model features our chambered mahogany solid body design with a carved maple top, two A6 black pickups, locking tuners, and an amazing neck designed by Pat Martino and Bob Benedetto to Pat’s exact specifications. This one made it out the door in front of Hurricane Matthew, but we have an Autumnburst version in Bob’s Boutique ready to ship!
Benedetto Guitars reestablished power at 6PM Oct 10 and we will be back to building guitars this morning! Things might be a little slow as we get back to work, as some of our employees still wait for power restoration and deal with hurricane damage to our area’s homes, neighborhoods, and schools. Thanks for your patience.
Thanks to CEMA, Savannah Chatham County Police and the folks from Georgia Power for getting us back to work!
