Here is your chance to get our workhorse 16″ x 2-1/2″ laminated professional series guitar without any waiting! Laminated spruce top, laminated maple back, solid maples sides and neck, A-6 pickup, all ebony appointments.

THIS JUST IN

We received this stunning piece of ambrosia maple this week! This gorgeous phenomenon is caused by an infestation of the ambrosia beetle and we think it will make for one very stunning Benedetto guitar. Please contact us if you would like to make plans for something special. It’s perfectly sized for any of our carved, 16″ models.

VERY CHERRY EN ROUTE TO ITALIA

This bellissima GA-35 Model is on it’s way to Italia in the capable hands of our good friend Signore Stefano! The GA-35 is Benedetto’s unique take on a double-cutaway chambered solid body guitar with a solid mahogany body (chambered to reduce weight and increase resonance), mahogany neck and a carved solid flamed maple top. 25″ scale with 1-11/16″ nut, ebony fingerboard with Bob’s floral motif throughout, and Benedetto’s stylized modern sound holes. Weighing in at about a skinny 6-1/2 lbs.

MAKING DJANGO PROUD


We’re still buzzing from our time in the California sun so why not share just one more memory from NAMM 2019? We thoroughly enjoyed this quick clip featuring jazz of the gypsy swing variety.

CALIFORNIA ON MY MIND


NAMM 2019 was almost more fun than we could handle! Our shared space with Henriksen Amplifiers was the undisputed center of the jazz guitar universe for the show which made for some pretty incredible musical moments. This was one of our favorites featuring Christiaan van Hemert playing our Bambino Elite model, Diarmuid Lally on bass, Will Galison on chromatic harmonica, and our own Howard Paul on 7-string guitar (his custom 16-B).
