Head on over to kickstarter.com to support Benedetto Artist, Yotam Silberstein’s new album, “Future Memories.” Perks include pre-sales, posters, tee shirts, lessons and more (there happens to be a great intro video with Yotam being interviewed while holding his custom Bambino Deluxe too).
‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the shop,
No one was sanding or carving a top,
The lacquer had dried and string ends were snipped,
Jazz boxes were packaged and already shipped,
Whether Bravo, Manhattan, or Benedetto Gear,
We hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Mattew Parrish captured this fantastic shot of Benedetto Artist, Rodney Jones and his Bambino Deluxe recording at the famous, and historically significant Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. We can barely wait to hear the results from this late November session!
Today marks the beginning of our winter shutdown. It’s a chance for our world-class team to recharge with family and prepare for another year of guitar greatness. We’ll be back at it on January 2nd at which time any orders from the Benedetto Gear Store will be processed. In the meantime, Howard and Jackson will be monitoring email or you can leave a message for Howard on the shop number, 912-692-1400.
You can never doubt the passion we at Benedetto have for guitars: almost every person in the building is a player! Even our President, Howard Paul makes it out of the shop about 200 nights a year performing with some of the greatest jazz musicians around. If you happen to be in the Northeast this weekend be sure to book a table or swing by to hear his custom 16-B in person.
Friday, December 21, Highlawn Pavilion, West Orange, New Jersey with the Mark Peterson Trio
Sunday December 23, Hard Rock Casino, Atlantic City, New Jersey, Howard Paul Trio featuring Mark Peterson and Ron Thompson
