BD Natural 1This Bravo Deluxe with Natural finish with a standard B6 pickup is just completed and being carefully packed for shipment to Bangkok, Thailand! Incredibly elegant and unencumbered, the Bravo Deluxe has become our most popular in the line of Professional Series laminated archtops. A workhorse main gigging axe that feels like our most expensive carved models but performs and travels more robustly on louder stages and through busy airports.

Benedetto Gear soon to sell Benedetto Amps for BG NewsBenedetto Guitars is excited to announce that Benedetto Amplifiers will soon be available from Benedetto Gear!

Handcrafted in the USA.

The Carino-12 is designed for the guitarist who strives for a classic, mainstream jazz tone. It’s articulate, warm and with plenty of clean headroom. Truly the epitome of jazz guitar amps.

The Carino-10 is convenient for the working musician who prefers a small, lightweight amp without compromising the big voice. This little giant is without rival.
