The Pat Martino Signature model is unique in the Benedetto line as it features Pat’s preferred specifications such as individual tone and volume controls and 24 5/8″ scale. This one is particularly special as it weighs a scant 6 3/4 lbs.! This models is deceptively playable with Pat’s heavy gauge, flat-wound strings resulting in the super-even, powerful tone for which he is famous. Available and ready to ship from Bob’s Boutique!
