DAMON SHOWS OFF HIS CRAFTSMANSHIP

Benedetto was proud to have Master Luthier Damon Mailand in Michigan and the Galloup School of Guitar Building & Repair teaching “The Art of Making the Archtop.” For the student, this was a rare opportunity to learn from the “best of the best” in an intimate shop setting. It was equally as rare for the eclipse they took a break to enjoy!

HONEY BLONDES HAVE MORE FUN!

A chance to own a Classic Benedetto! Just added to Bob’s Boutique, our ‘workhorse’ jazz guitar is our Bravo: comfortable, resonant (but feedback resistant), fast and ultra-balanced (both physically and sonically). The construction and attention to detail is as refined as our most expensive guitars, but this one is intended to be accessible to players and practical on the gig. Rich honey blonde finish with espresso neck, back and sides; 25″ scale, 1-3/4″ nut.
