HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PHIL!

Phillip “Phil” Archibald joined Benedetto in September 2012. From Manhattan Beach, California, Phil took his studies on the road to Big Rapids, Michigan where he studied at the Galoup School of Lutherie. Upon graduation, Phil was hired to work at Ellsberry Archtop Guitars where he honed all his skills of guitarmaking. At Benedetto, 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.

Wishing Phil a fabulous birthday!!!
