This antiqueburst 16B is a stunning custom order utilizing fine select European tone woods, upgraded wood binding, A6 gold pickup, EPS tailpiece, Gotoh tuners, and an custom lotus flower inlay on the headstock, the back of which is hand signed by Bob Benedetto. Our 16B has become an enormously popular option for guitarists looking for a more accessible version of a hand-carved Benedetto. This one is on its way to Japan where one very excited customer awaits!

The Bambino Deluxe is perfect for straight-ahead bebop, swing, fusion, smooth jazz, or even a little Gypsy music! The natural finish highlights the flamed maple top, complimenting an espresso maple back, sides, and neck. Features a compact body size (14 1/2″ x 2 1/4″) and rock friendly nut width (1 11/16″), deluxe binding package, A6 Pickup, and ebony bridge, tailpiece, fingerboard and fingerrest. Currently this guitar is “on tour” with Howard in Frankfurt Germany at Musikmesse.
You can snag it with a Hoffee case for $6,500 (we wanted it to travel over the pond in style)! OR, if it returns, you also have the option of purchasing from Bob’s Boutique with a standard case for $5,500.
