This antiqueburst 16B is a stunning custom order utilizing fine select European tone woods, upgraded wood binding, A6 gold pickup, EPS tailpiece, Gotoh tuners, and an custom lotus flower inlay on the headstock, the back of which is hand signed by Bob Benedetto. Our 16B has become an enormously popular option for guitarists looking for a more accessible version of a hand-carved Benedetto.

S2331 16B AB_FC2_GeorgEnz_033016Our 16B model brings back a little nostalgia with the body lines of Bob’s custom-made 16″ guitars from the 1990s. This is the pattern that graced guitars made for Bucky Pizzarelli, Joe Diorio, Ron Eschete, Howard Alden, Jimmy Bruno, Chris Standring, John Pizzarelli and other world-class players and esteemed customers. It borrows its binding package, headstock shape, tuners and EPS tailpiece from the Bravo Deluxe, and the A-6 built-in gold pickup from the Bravo model. The inlaid “Benedetto” logo is abalone. It is the most gig-friendly carved guitar in our line, remarkably responsive and feedback resistant. And, in our classic Antiqueburst!
