FLASHBACK FRIDAY – 2010 JAZZ FESTIVAL

2018 SAVANNAH JAZZ FESTIVAL is happening NOW! We thought it be fun to look back at the Festival’s Saturday, Sept. 25th, 2010 performance: Trumpet great Marcus Printup (17-year tenure with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra at the time of that year’s festival) was backed by the Savannah Jazz Orchestra at historic Forsyth Park. BG’s own Howard Paul holds the Guitar Chair. (Joe Gransden also performed.)

IT’S FALL Y’ALL!

It’s fall y’all! No more perfect time to deliver an AUTUMN-burst Bravo Deluxe than now! As of last week, this 7-string custom model has taken up residence in SC. Look closely and you’ll notice the absence of the 12th fret floral inlay, and you’ll also see the mother-of-pearl logo on the headstock and “JMW” on the tailpiece.

This autumnburst Bravo Deluxe doesn’t have far to go to get to its new home in Atlanta from our shop here in Savannah, GA….just down the road!

All standard appointments except we didn’t bind the sound holes. Classic Benedetto!

THE HOLIDAYS ARE COMING!

We’re working to restocking our Gear Store for the holidays! If you’ve been waiting for a strap or luggage tag that’s been sold out, we’ll have them soon.

Also, order soon if you want a gig bag, because they are (mostly) special ordered (we have a couple in stock). Give us 2-4 weeks to ensure holiday delivery. Photo by Mike Oria.
