This week was the 8th trip to DC as Benedetto Guitars joined the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) in a quest to insure funding for public school music education!
Thanks to colleges former Sec of Ed Richard Riley, former Deputy USec Leo Coco, Greg Deering, Chris Martin, Bernie Williams, Crystal Morris, Jason Gano, and the entire team!
If you’re in downtown Savannah, come check out our 50th Anniversary La Venezia model on display at Savannah’s newest and hottest luxury boutique hotel, Perry Lane!
This beautiful Bravo with a non-standard dark claret finish — a gorgeous dark red, similar to wine (which we love as you know) — is on its way to Tennessee!
This model is tastefully detailed, rich and full–sounding thin–body that is easy to travel with, utilizing a lightweight laminated spruce top and flamed maple back construction, features a flamed maple neck, signature abalone floral inlay at the 12th fret and an upgraded B–6 pickup.

It’s that time of year again! Howard has made his way back to Washington, D.C. (his eighth time!) to advocate for all children to have access to quality, comprehensive school music education programs. Howard joins nearly 100 music industry leaders and artists as part of a delegation of music education advocates during the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) annual Music Education Fly-In, May 21-24, 2018.
The issue takes on special importance this year as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), readies for state-level implementation in the 2018-2019 school year, and specifies music as part of a well-rounded education. Howard will meet with Members of Congress and other elected officials to advocate for the funding of school music programs across the nation and to discuss the multitude of benefits music education espouses such as increased brain function, focus and language development, as discussed in a new research study from Northwestern University.
Keep up the good work, Howard!
Don’t mess with Texas? Well, what if it’s in a good way…as in sending this beautiful antiqueburst Bravo to live there?

Flashback to a fabulous duo recording of MOON GLOW with jazz giants Bucky Pizzarelli and Frank Vignola (each on their Signature Benedetto models). Produced by Joel Dorn for Hyena Records, the 2005 CD features such great tunes as If I Had You and Temptation.
