We’re delighted to share this biographical article about one of America’s great jazz guitar voices! Joe is still going strong in his early 90’s, and plays with a dexterity and harmonic ease that make guitarist a quarter of his age marvel!

Joe’s a longtime Benedetto Player and we are proud to share his story from the earlier published Vintage Guitar Magazine.

THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY LA VENEZIA

Posted .

2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of Benedetto Guitars! Founded by Robert Benedetto and handcrafted in Savannah, GA since 2006, Benedetto guitars have been played by four generations of the world’s best jazz guitarists from Chuck Wayne, Bucky Pizzarelli and Johnny Smith to Dan Wilson, Andreas Varady and King Solomon Hicks.

To commemorate this special milestone, we created this one-of-a-kind La Venezia model. Master Luthier Damon Mailand hand-carved and graduated the guitar using Bob’s original tools and workbench, and Bob came out of retirement to hand antique-violin finish it at his home workbench in Florida. The result is new Benedetto guitar that looks and performs as if it was the first guitar Bob might have created, but with 50 years of love and experience!

We’ll showcase the guitar throughout the year at various conferences/shows. So, come see us at NAMM in Anaheim January 25-28 (booth 3323), where we’ll have this and many other models for you to demo, and some even available to purchase.
