The stunning European maple back on this 16-B could have just as easily been used for a Manhattan or La Venezia were it not for a slight weakening in the edge of the figuring, making it more suitable for a burst than a lighter finish such as Blonde or Natural.
It features a 16″ lower bout, 2 1/2″ depth, 25″ scale, and 1 3/4″ nut width. It’s our most gig-friendly carved guitar with a comfortable, balanced size, weight, and feedback resistant, built-in Benedetto A-6 pickup.
Jingle Bells was written right here in Savannah, Georgia (right around the corner from where this was filmed). Since all our guitars are built right here as well, it seems like the perfect tune to celebrate the season. Happy Holidays, everybody!

We are thrilled to welcome the newest Benedetto Artist, Paul Bollenback! We met Paul back in September when he was playing the Savannah Safe virtual jazz festival. Naturally, he had to come by the shop while in town and fell in love with the Bambino model while he was here.
We can hardly wait to hear what Paul does with this gorgeous guitar!
