WHEN WILL WE LEARN?

When it comes time to document a customer’s order with photographs, we almost always expect another routine job. Then we open the case and have to pinch ourselves!

This stunner is heading off to Canada where we hope the lucky customer is as in love with the amazing Antiqueburst finish and warm, woody B-6 pickup as we are! Happy picking!

TIME FLIES

We came across this great post from an old friend, Martin Taylor: “1989 – Playing a gig with my son James on drums. The great guitar luthier Bob Benedetto had just made this Benedetto ‘Cremona’ for me the year before. A really beautiful guitar.”

Thanks for all the fond memories, Martin!
