THE LITTLE GUITAR THAT CAN

The Andy Elite is probably the rarest of the Benedetto models with fewer than ten having been built since it was introduced. Featuring a 12″ lower bout and 23″ scale, this diminutive instrument is an  easy travel companion. Don’t let looks fool you though, this guitar has an impressive voice suitable for even the most discerning jazz guitarists. With a floating pickup and included gigbag this little guitar is ready to hit the stage in any corner of the world. See Bob’s Boutique for more details on how to make this guitar yours.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

This stunning Antiqueburst/Espresso Bambino with one of the last few 4oth anniversary inlays was added to Bob’s Boutique last week. Featuring laminate construction, double A-6 pickups, no sound holes and a small block under the bridge, the Bambino model is easily the most versatile of our archtop models.
The 14.5″ body and 1 11/16″ nut width are super comfortable. The Bambino can be either a great transition instrument for electric players looking to lean toward a jazz box or straight ahead players looking for better electric performance while maintaining the feel of an archtop.  Contact Jackson Evans for more details.
