JUST A REMINDER

Probably the most common question we get is, “Where can I try a Benedetto?” This is tricky since our Savannah showroom and shop has been the exclusive spot since about 2008. In an effort to accommodate more guitarists we have recently partnered with a few friends around the country to make guitars available.

For appointments and available instruments at the locations below, please contact us. You can also link to specific, available instruments in Bob’s Boutique (see the guitar’s description for location).

MEET NEW BENEDETTO AMBASSADOR: ALBERTO CEBOLLERO
