This unique Bravo Elite shipped to its new home in Oregon this week! Built sans binding, it features spectacular mahogany back and sides recovered from a river bed in Belize, Honduran mahogany neck, and a beautiful spruce top.
The Bravo Elite is a 16″ x 2-1/2″ body, 25″ scale and 1-3/4″ nut width, and it includes a built-in B6 pickup and ebony violin-style tailpiece.
Hear a demo of the Bravo Elite below:
Since Benedetto introduced the GA-35 model in 2013, which Bob Benedetto designed to be a fusion/blues/rock/jazz instrument, we have only delivered the standard six-string model.
This neck and headstock belongs to our FIRST seven-string GA-35, which will make for a truly one-of-a-kind guitar…until someone custom orders another one!
Of course, if you ask us, the best part of any day is getting to perform and/or listen to live music, and we had quite the line-up for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s fundraiser we hosted at Benedetto.
The crowd enjoyed the Tony Monaco Trio with our own Howard Paul and Justin Varnes, and Gypsy jazz artists Dr. Sasha Strunjas and Marty Liquori (National Spokesperson for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society). But, not before Benedetto Master Luthier Damon Mailand kicked things off with his band Damon & the Shitkickers.
A fantastic time was had by all, but most importantly, much needed funds were raised that will support research to eradicate blood cancers.
Thanks too all who attended!
Someone must have left the back door unlocked and these gypsy players snuck into Benedetto!
Dr. Sasha Strunjas and Marty Liquori readying themselves to perform at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society fundraiser held at Benedetto Guitars this weekend.
Thank you for your patience…we’re BACK as of about 10:45am EST. We apologize for any inconvenience!
Everyone bear with us — our email system went down over the weekend.
We are diligently working to get it up and running again, but in the meantime, please give us a call at (912) 692-1400.
Nothing could inspire us more than this photo sent yesterday by our friend and Benedetto player Garrison Fewell! Berklee professor, author, recording artist, innovator, scholar, and jazz guitar great, Garrison handily dispatches adversity and finds joy in his music! His sent this photo of his new “haircut” following some radiation treatments, but wanted us to know it wouldn’t get in the way of performing on his Bravo Elite.
We celebrate every note with this remarkable artist/educator!

A great photo shared by our friend Martin Taylor playing his Benedetto Cremona with his son James on drums.
This is Bob’s top of the line Flagship model guitar, the stuff of legends: The Cremona guitar.
All of us at Benedetto join the rest of the guitar community in saying farewell to legendary musician, guitar icon, and longtime Gibson artist B.B. King. He inspired generations of guitarists and spread joy worldwide. Like many greats, his recordings will continue to influence future generations of players, for which we in the industry are eternally grateful.
