Unadulterated, pure acoustic magic! This lovely 16″ x 3″ Sinfonietta model continues Bob Benedetto’s aesthetic sensibility and sonic approach to acoustic nirvana with a nod to Lloyd Loar’s guitar-evolving introduction to the world of jazz. Master Luthier Damon Mailand hand-carved this beauty with highly flamed European maple back and sides, premium grade European spruce top, and a Spanish cedar neck. The faceplate and heal cap are borne from burled maple and crushed turquoise cast into the burl voids. The top is parallel braced with modern “S” holes and a light antiqueburst finish hand-sprayed by our master finisher Larry Perkins. Benedetto ebony violin tailpiece, bridge, fingerboard and endpin. Waverley gold tuner. Note: the top is Bob Benedetto-carved for an archtop building workshop (Bob’s last one) hosted here in Savannah in 2009. Photos by S. Ward.
