A very lucky customer ordered this stunning, custom Bambino Elite. It is being built with an incredible piece of fiddleback mahogany which was sourced from the Fiddleback Tree, a once-in-a-lifetime find according to our supplier. It exhibits the most intensely flamed mahogany we’ve ever seen. Only ten billets for archtop guitars were sourced from this tree. We obtained two which means only one other Benedetto will feature this fine material. Which model would you order with fiddleback mahogany?

We predict this Bravo Deluxe won’t last long in Bob’s Boutique! The last autumnburst Bravo Deluxe didn’t even last a day!!!
So, if you’ve been dreaming of one, here it is! Otherwise, it’s a 7-month lead time.
Our Bravo Deluxe is easily THE most popular of our Professional Series guitars. 16″ x 2-1/2″ body, B6 pickup, Deluxe binding package, and a 25″ scale and 1-3/4″ nut. It’s a workhorse for gigging jazz musicians!

“Dear Guitar People – Here is a lesson on the Blues in Jazz. There is so much information out there and so little knowledge. The instruction in this video is the product of “World Lessons” not “Word Lessons”. It is intended to give anyone who wants to learn the Blues a strong foundation. These are things that actually work, not just things that theoretically work. If you want to build your foundation in playing the “Jazz” blues then this video may be for you. Let me know what you think and what you learn. With gratitude and appreciation…”
