HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO STEPHAN GRAPELLI

Yesterday marks 114 years since the birth of the great French-Italian jazz violinist, Stéphane Grappelli, for whom Bob built a violin in 1987. We just love this snazzy picture sent to us by Martin Taylor who is holding his Benedetto in the shot!

AUTUMN DELIGHT

The Pat Martino Signature model is one of our most popular guitars, and we totally understand why: It’s gorgeous, versatile, and is drenched in a jazz pedigree that only the combined names of Benedetto and Pat Martino can offer.

This one shipped out yesterday, but the next batch is due late spring or early summer and only two are unspoken for. If you want one without the current 10 to 12 month lead time, we recommend contacting us asap visa email, info@benedettoguitars.com.

VISIT FROM AN OLD FRIEND

Every once in awhile a slice of museum-grade history walks through our front door… This gorgeous, one-of-a-kind guitar is on loan from the collection of Dr. Jack Harris and was built by Bob in 1998 for Kenny Burrell. It features a tapered-depth, 17 inch body, floral inlay motif throughout, a florentine cutaway, and a unique Blueburst finish that has aged beautifully.
