Our Benedetto Players share a special bond, and we love it when they come together and share their experiences with us.
Thank you Howard Alden, Bucky Pizzarelli and Chico Pinheiro for sending this great snap of you guys at Avatar Studios in Manhattan!
Following his participation in the ULM Guitar Festival, Howard has returned from Monroe, Louisiana, where he presented his workshop detailing the history and architecture of the archtop, as well as performed in a concert that evening. The staff and students at ULM were very grateful for Benedetto’s participation as were we for the opportunity. Special thanks to Prof.Dan Sumner and family for the hospitality!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all of our Benedetto fans. Will you be our Valentine?

Benedetto Player Barry Greene visited us last week and we took the opportunity for him to record some audio samples of the GA-35, as we mentioned in this prior news post. We now have those clips ready for you to enjoy!
This week, Benedetto’s Howard Paul headed down to the University of Northern Florida to conduct his workshop detailing the history and architecture of the jazz guitar. And, as always, the most anticipated moment for the jazz students, the UNF Ospreys, is to get their hands on one of the five Benedettos that Howard brought along for them to demo.
Also, this week, Benedetto Player and UNF Jazz Guitarist Professor Barry Greene teamed up with Howard for great jazz duets during a series of performances in Bluffton, South Carolina; Jacksonville, Florida; and Atlantic Beach, Florida.
Our friend Gerard Montalat posted this lovely video with his new Benedetto Bravo model. We have to share! Thanks Gerard!
