FLASHBACK FRIDAY

We have one of Howard Alden‘s Benedettos in the shop now for a tune-up, so we thought today would be the perfect flashback to his performance at the 21st North Wales International Jazz Guitar Weekend in May 2014. Recorded at the Catrin Finch Center, Glyndwr University, Wrexham, Wales.

ADVERTISING ACROSS THE POND

Benedetto Ad for Jazzit_finalWe recently submitted an advertisement featuring our Benedetto Bravo Deluxe in Antiqueburst finish to Jazzit, an Italian-published magazine. This roughly translates to, “Since 1968…the true sound of Jazz guitar.”

A BIG thank you to Benedetto player, Luca di Luzio, for all his help lining up this opportunity — you are a gem!

SEALING THE DEAL

Mark Broome ordering custom americanAdd a Custom Americana to his Andy Elite and Bravo Deluxe models, and Mark Broome is now the proud owner of a THIRD Benedetto! Well, it will take us a few months to get his new guitar to his door (our lead time is seven to eight months now), but he is technically a three-timer.

Congrats, Mark, and thank you for coming out to see us at the Memphis Acoustic Guitar Show!

DIVE RIGHT IN

S2270 BravoDlx7S AMB_FV3_KennyWunder_060915The Bravo Deluxe 7-String is always going to be beautiful, but this custom order Aquamarineburst finish takes our breath away!

The color is right between our Blueburst and our lovely Emerald Green. All of our finishes are mixed and applied by hand by the keen eye of master finisher Larry Perkins, and the woods can take on different hues. The results are unique and stunning! And, the guitar is a workhorse gigging machine!
