From start to finish (literally!), all our Benedetto models [including our popular BRAVO] are completely made in Savannah, Georgia.

HAPPY 4th of JULY Weekend!

This is me on the front steps of our home in New Jersey, taken actually on Memorial Day, 1957. But I sat on those same steps with the same flag on every 4th of July, too!  Happy 4th, USA!   🙂

The  (BBGR) ‘Best BG Roadie’ Award goes to Andy Paul (the namesake for our Traveling Guitar)…Aptly named!

Just came across this fond memory from our trip to the Smithsonian Institution in April 2006 when Bucky Pizzarelli’s first Benedetto guitar was made part of the Permanent Collection of Musical Instruments – a great day! With Bob is dear BG friend Randall Kremer, Director of Public Affairs for the Museum of Natural History [some of you also know him as our Benedetto Players Concert host!) with his Custom Benedetto as well as another dear BGer Bill Doyle with the now famous Anima e Corpo (with the 80 jazz guitarist signatures). BGBFF!  🙂

July 2, 2010  marks our 4th Anniversary in Savannah, Georgia!  This photo from July 2006 was taken when we first opened the shop. (L to R): Me, Patty, (a much littler!) Andy & Howard Paul, Bob, our daughter Gina Benedetto with her (now) fiance Karl Cossio (love saying that!), both of whom do our great website,  and our incredible Production Manager Evan ‘Andre’ Ellis  🙂

Thank you to everyone who’s been a part of our lives.

Here’s to a happy, healthy and prosperous Year 5!
