Sinfonietta S2166GP is an example of artistic simplicity and tradition. It’s the reason there is a Golden Period label inside of the instrument. An elegant non-cutaway with a 16” lower bout with a 3” body depth, it is the quintessential unadulterated jazz box.
Hand selected from Bob Benedetto’s stock of exceptional European spruces and maples, this Sinfonietta is made with traditional x-bracing, Bob’s more modernistic “S” holes, flamed maple binding, a honey blonde finish, 25” scales, and a 1 11/16” nut width. It is intended to be a completely uncompromised acoustic instrument with perfect balance, bass response, and projection.
Strung with phosphorous bronze strings, and shipped in a deluxe Cedar Creek case, it is Benedetto’s tribute to Lloyd Loar’s creation some 80 years ago.
