MOONEY ON SHORTER

UNT Guitar Department Head, and Benedetto Artist, Davy Mooney gives a great, anecdotal and technical discussion parsing out some modern language here. He uses Wayne Shorter’s “Ana Maria” as an example it is nothing short of articulate. Thanks for the free lesson, Davy!

WORLD TRAVELER

It’s obvious that the world’s finest travel guitar would make its way around the world but this one isn’t wasting any time… A lucky traveler in Taiwan will take delivery of this gorgeous instrument.

CLASSIC MANHATTAN PERFECTION

It’s hard to imagine a more classic archtop than this incredible Manhattan in Antiqueburst. It’s even harder to imagine how difficult these perfect mitres in the binding by our Whitewood Body Specialist, Phillip Archibald are! The black purfling layers are a scant 10 thousandths of an inch (yes we measure things in thousandths around here). That takes good lighting, great eyes, and a steady hand!

READY TO GO! (CORRECTION: ALREADY GONE)

When we scheduled this post on Friday we hoped someone might see it Monday morning and be enticed by its beauty. It turns out you have to be quick on the draw when our most popular model shows up in Bob’s Boutique… One lucky guitarist in California beat you to it (Don’t worry we’ll have more soon)!

It features a super comfortable 16″ x 2.5″ body with laminated spruce top, laminated maple back, and solid maple sides. Other standard features are 25″ scale, 1 3/4″ nut width, and A-6 pickup. Act quickly as these never last long! Head on over to Bob’s Boutique for details.

BONUS TRACK

Whenever we make demo videos we try a couple different tunes… so it’s time for B sides! Here is a quick version of All the Things You Are on the Ambrosia Maple 16-B we demonstrated a few weeks back.

CALIFORNIA DREAMING

This unbelievable example of a Bravo Deluxe is heading to California, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have it… It just means you get a chance to try it before you buy it by visiting our friends at Imperial Vintage Guitar in Sherman Oaks. Because we don’t have dealers, it’s rare to have a chance to try one of our instruments in the wild. Imperial Vintage Guitar have very generously offered us wall space which gives our West coast friends a chance to see and hear this beauty in person.

The non-standard, Light Antiqueburst finish has been an extraordinarily popular choice for our Bravo Deluxe model. This particular guitar is glammed up a little bit with Fratello motif position markers on the fretboard and a matching, inlaid Benedetto logo.
