WE’VE GOT BLISTERS ON OUR FINGERS

Every once in awhile we have a chance to experiment with something new. When this totally unique blister-quilt maple veneer came to our attention, we assumed it could only be used as a top for a Bravo Deluxe or Bambino Deluxe since solid sides aren’t cut in a way that could match. Not one to ignore a challenge, Master Luthier, Damon Mailand decided to attempt to apply a veneer on a regular side set as a test. Well, it worked like a charm, and he decided to move the guitar forward as a spec build for Bob’s Boutique having slated it for a Natural finish.

When it finally reached the bench of Master Finisher, Larry Perkins, his experienced gut told him Natural wasn’t the right fit for this beauty and instead swayed us to change the plan to our very popular, Light Antiqueburst finish, and boy are we glad he did!

It seems highly likely this guitar will get snatched up long before it’s completion date sometime in a month or two. Please email Jackson Evans (jevans@benedettoguitars.com) to be the lucky snatcher. A 25% deposit puts your name on the guitar with the balance plus shipping and handling due upon completion.

AMERICANA

This stunning Americana in Claret finish is heading for the able hands of Pittsburgh guitar legend, Mark Strickland. The 17″ lower bout and 3″ depth give this model all the tonal complexity of our acoustic models while the built-in pickup and parallel bracing make the amplified sound of the guitar rich, warm, and controllable on the bandstand.

TRUE NORTH

This gorgeous Andy model was built for long time BG friend and artist, Beth Marlis. She asked for the stylish compass inlay stating, “The compass was always meant as a double entendre of being able to travel in every direction musically and across the world.” Even with physical travel restricted right now, we think the Andy will make a great traveling companion once the airports are busy again!
