S2332 BennyNAT_BirdseyeMaple(BB)_FC8_080516Ready, set, ship!

This Birdseye one-off Benny model was destined for Bob’s Boutique, but someone savvy guitarist bought it first!

The Benny is a chambored Mahogany body 14-1/2″ x 2″ body with a carved top (Birdseye maple in this case), 25″ scale mahogany neck with 1-3/4″ nut, and two A6 pickups with a tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece.

Don’t fret! We have more ready-to-ship Benedettos in Bob’s Boutique!

THE SAVANNAH JAZZ FESTIVAL IS APPROACHING!

SJF 2016 Artwork

Don’t forget, the 35th Annual Savannah Jazz Festival is set to take over our fair city September 18-26, for which Benedetto has always been a major sponsor!

A little about our artwork this year: jazz piano legend, composer, arranger and multi-Grammy recipient Bob James created this instrumental bird-in-flight in 2013 specifically for the Savannah Jazz Festival. Sadly, bassist Ben Tucker passed away the year that Bob’s art was to be featured, and CJA’s Tom Kenkel created a Ben Tucker tribute poster in its place.

This year we are honored and grateful to feature Bob’s art! It is a tribute to his years living on Skidaway Island, and takes its form from a photo Bob took from the marsh near his home.
