This autumnburst Bravo Deluxe doesn’t have far to go to get to its new home in Atlanta from our shop here in Savannah, GA….just down the road!
All standard appointments except we didn’t bind the sound holes. Classic Benedetto!

We’re working to restocking our Gear Store for the holidays! If you’ve been waiting for a strap or luggage tag that’s been sold out, we’ll have them soon.
Also, order soon if you want a gig bag, because they are (mostly) special ordered (we have a couple in stock). Give us 2-4 weeks to ensure holiday delivery. Photo by Mike Oria.
We’ve had just about every shade of our popular Bravo Deluxe model make it through Bob’s Boutique lately, and NOW we can add this guitar in our equally as popular light antiqueburst finish to our inventory!
The Bravo Deluxe is a 16″ x 2-1/2″ laminated spruce top, maple back and solid sides, 1-3/4″ nut, 25″scale, B6 pickup and all ebony appointments from the tuning buttons to the tailpiece! $6,500 (+ S&H), includes hardshell case.
Phillip “Phil” Archibald joined Benedetto in September 18, 2012. Is there a “seven year itch” on the horizon? We sure hope not!
Phil is responsible for all aspects of our professional series guitars, and works on the Flagship carved guitars – specifically binding soundholes and bodies, and doing the final preparation before they go to finishing.

A big THANK YOU to Greg Wachala, Director Jazz Guitar Ensemble/Applied Instructor of Jazz Studies at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, for hosting Howard Paul this past week. Howard had a great time sharing his vast wealth of all things archtop in addition to letting students demo some of our models.

This gorgeous GA-35 with a custom finish we’ve dubbed “limoncello” will be safe and sound in our shop for a few more days ensuring no snags in shipping due to Hurricane Florence that’s baring down on the east coast now. So, come Monday (fingers crossed) we’ll be shipping this beauty down to Florida!
