Congratulations to BG Artist Douglas Neel – beginning this fall, he will be the Director of Commercial Music Studies at Tiffin University (Tiffin, OH).
Douglas also serves as the Instructor of Jazz/Contemporary Guitar at the University of Findlay.
“Things are great! I just finished working at the “second annual” BGSU/New York Voices Vocal Jazz Camp, and it was an absolute blast! Great people, great music, great vibes all week; it was truly spectacular.”
With his Benny 7-String, he brings new energy and discipline to jazz guitar – an influence on new generations of players for many years to come.

“B” informed of our E-vents!
Just came across this great BG Savannah video done by the Jimmy Bruno Guitar Institute when Jimmy visited us back in April, 2008.
Informative and, as always with Jimmy “Paganini” Bruno, entertaining! 🙂
Bob’s delicately handcarved heel cap highlights the Spanish Cedar neck on “Il Teredo II”, also bound for the Boutique!
One of the great things about having a Boutique shop is having the freedom to do custom colors, pretty much when we feel like it!
Matt Eady inspects our 2nd Ben-bino in the works, this one with a slightly lemony-tinted variation of our Sweet Tea, hence the new shade, Limoncello! This Ben-bino will be smooth and warm, just like the Italian lemon liqueur that inspired it. Coming soon to Bob’s Boutique!
