The 2019 Savannah Jazz Festival has begun, making it arguably the best week to be in Savannah. The line up is spectacular but we’re partial to Friday’s performance at Forsyth Park featuring Benedetto Artist, Dan Wilson. Keep an eye on our Facebook page as we’re hoping to convince him to do a live Q&A while he’s in town.
If you are in the Denver area today or tomorrow, September 21st or 22nd, make your way over to Arvada for the Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival. The show should be incredible and there is live music dispersed throughout Old Town Arvada. We’ll have this stunning 16-B with ambrosia maple back and sides on display.
Our newest ambassador, Jocelyn Gould, will go into the studio this weekend for her debut record on the Posi-Tone label… Here’s a snippet of one of her originals from the woodshed!
It’s unusual for us to build a Bambino Elite without an order but we wanted a few special guitars for the Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival this coming weekend. With a typical build time of seven to eight months, it’s incredibly rare to have this guitar available without the wait.
Head on over to Bob’s Boutique for details and extra photos. Contact Jackson Evans to inquire about purchasing this guitar.
Today marks the 7th anniversary of Phillip Archibald! Phil is the craftsman behind every Professional Series body and assists with the binding and finish prep on the Flagship Models. His constant attention to detail and ability to solve problems creatively make him an invaluable member of the Benedetto team. Thanks for everything you do, Phil! Cheers to many more!
This coming weekend, September 21 & 22, marks the inaugural Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival in Arvada, Colorado.
Any fan of archtop guitars will have a phenomenal time whether it’s pouring over all the beautiful guitars or listening to/learning from the one of the artists from the staggering list of attendees.
Big thanks to our friends at Henriksen Amplifiers for hosting.
Benedetto Artists, Dan Wilson and Randy Napoleon had a reportedly great gig together a few weeks back. They were supported by Chuck Redd and Tommy Cecil.
We wish we could have been there to hear it but by all accounts the show was spectacular!
A sneak peek at this beautifully delicate bracing from Damon Mailand’s work bench. This ultralight cedar top has an incredible chime and will eventually become a unique, nylon string Sinfonietta.
Every Sinfonietta is unique in some way. The model has featured oval sound holes, floral sound holes, traditional sound holes, intricate inlay, unique tone woods and exotic variations.
