NAME THAT TONE


With a new Pat Martino Signature model available in Bob’s Boutique, we thought we would re-share this livestream from June featuring Benedetto Artist, Corey Christiansen. It’s pretty plain to see, or hear rather, that this guitar is far more versatile than just approximating the sound of Maestro Martino!

NEW BAMBINO ELITE!

Possibly our most visually striking model, the Bambino Elite is a rare find in Bob’s Boutique. It is a guitar loved by discerning guitarists with penchant for modern design because of its incredibly versatility and minimalist aesthetic. An abundance of complex ocertones make this guitar just as comfortable for a fingerstyle player as it is for straight ahead jazz player looking to exploit the warm amplified tone of the built in B-6 pickup.

With a 14 1/2″ lower bout, 2 1/4″ depth, and 1 11/16″ nut width this guitar is comfortable for players of any stature. The hand carved and tuned European tonewoods are brought to life by the genuine nitrocellulose lacquer finish in classic Violinburst, a nod to the great Italian violin builders of centuries past.

Check it out in Bob’s Boutique!

IT’S NOT A POPULARITY CONTEST

Or is it? As our two most gig-worthy models, The Bravo Deluxe and 16-B are without a doubt our most popular guitars. This Honeyblonde Bravo Deluxe is no exception so we don’t expect it to hang around too long!

Featuring 16″ x 2-1/2″ laminated spruce top, maple back and solid maple sides and neck, ebony appointments, 25″ scale with 1-3/4″ nut, and a black B-6 Pickup! Extremely lightweight and responsive. Standard appointments, hardshell case, extraordinary workmanship, and an unparalleled pedigree.

BENEDETTO GEAR IS ROLLING IN

With the holidays just around the corner we thought we better stock up in the Benedetto Gear Store!

Most importantly, strings are back with new, less-waste packaging! Global supply chains have taken a beating this year so while we’re sorry it took so long, we are excited to have three new variations available based on the sets we use to set up specific models here at the shop: Flagship .014″-.052″, Flagship 7-string .014″-.077″, and Pat Martino Flats .015″-.052″.

A few other items such as hats are still out of stock but have been ordered. Straps are running low but also with more on the way. Lastly, we have plenty of guitar care products in inventory to help you keep your Benedetto shiny as can be!
