FIVE YEARS?

Tim Jackson March 2016It’s been five years since we first posted this photo and we can’t believe how time flies. Kuumbwa are great Friends of ours so keep an eye out for a BG Gear feature in their upcoming auction fundraiser.

The original post:

“People come from all over the world to experience the Savannah Music Festival, which is taking place now all over downtown historic Savannah. Wonderful tour of Benedetto with Tim & Lori Jackson from Santa Cruz, California. Tim founded Kuumbwa Jazz 41 years ago and has headed the Monterey Jazz Festival for 26 years!

“Thrilled they are visitors to the Savannah Music Festival and were able to stop by to catch up!”

THE GUIT-FIDDLE

It isn’t a stretch to say that the Benedetto archtop guitars are in some way the great-great-grandchildren of the Stradivarius and Guarneri violins that came out of Cremona Italy in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. This recently completed Bravo Elite is a fine tribute to that lineage with its clean, unbound lines and classic Violinburst finish.

ALWAYS ASK!

This incredible Pat Martino Signature Model guitar was intended for Bob’s Boutique, but someone asked if we had something like it coming through and snatched it up just a week before completion. Just a reminder to send info@benedettoguitars.com a note if you’re waiting on something in particular and we might just have it!
