Antiqueburst Andy Elite

Serial #S2517

The Andy Elite model is entirely unique in the archtop guitar universe. Don’t be fooled by the size, though. This little guitar is fully capable and adheres to the same exacting standards of all Benedetto guitars. The Andy Elite is a 3/4 scale hand-carved archtop with an astonishing voice and pedigree. 12″ x 3″ lower bout with a sitka spruce top and bigleaf maple back and sides, 23″ scale with ebony fingerboard. Mini-tuners, mini floating humbucking pickup with volume control on ebony fingerrest, floating ebony bridge and violin-style ebony tailpiece with endpin input. This guitar shares the La Venezia sans-binding aesthetic. Unamplified it is rich and projective with round overtones and remarkable balance. Amplified, it sounds like a full-size concert worthy jazz guitar.

Price: $12,000 + S&H. Includes custom gigbag.
