“Come away feeling that at least for a few hours [you] were in an earlier, care-free time.”
Bill Doyle, the Band’s Rhythm Guitarist as well as its Manager (hence the fab tuxedo and initials on the cuffs – how classy is all that), is shown below with his custom “The Doyles”, Serial #48906GP. It’s a 17″ non-cutaway with European woods and a Spirit Varnish finish with his beautiful family wood transferred to the headstock. An exquisite example of a Custom guitar! (Plus most of you know he is the creator of “Benedetto: Body & Soul”, our Savannah shop DVD and the owner of “Anima e Corpo”.)
Indeed, Memories are made of this!

A BRAVO DELUXE 7 top (with its f-holes in the process of being bound) rests on a bench at day’s end.
August (coming soon!) means it’s Benedetto Players Concerts, Napa Valley and MINER WINES time!
For starters, a reminder there’s a special Benedetto Players Concert at the Napa Valley Jazz Society on August 13th, the evening before our very special Miner/Benedetto Release Party on August 14th.
Just something about a “Trio” we like, so we’ve added a third event: a Jazz Guitar Workshop presented by Bob Benedetto & Howard Paul also at Miner Family Vineyards, Sunday, August 15th, 11 – 1 pm. Free admission.
Hope you are as Jazzed as we are! 🙂
