Randy Napoleon says all the cats love his Bravo Deluxe!
A customer recently ordered a Natural Bambino Deluxe with a bookmatched veneer on the top and the result was so incredible we figured we must do another one with a burst for something extraordinary.
This one-of-a-kind Bambino Deluxe features upgraded, laminated back and sides with a matching neck, and an all-over burst in addition to the special top. Combine standard appointments such as comfortable 14 1/2″ x 2 1/4″ body dimensions, 25″ scale and 1 11/16″ nut width, with these outstanding aesthetics and you are left with a stunning piece of art, worthy of the world’s best stages.
This is the second Bambino Deluxe to hit Bob’s Boutique this week… the other one only lasted a few days so we recommend acting quickly if this stunning guitar strikes a chord with you. Check it out in Bob’s Boutique or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
We just love this photo of blues guitar phenom, Solomon Hicks by Richard Reid… So much emotion is a single shot!
This stunning Bambino Deluxe in Honeyblonde/Espresso is ready to ship in all its compact glory. With all standard appointments and including a hardshell case, this is the perfect holiday gift for the gigging guitarist or discerning enthusiast in your life.
It features a 25″ scale, 1 11/16″ nut width, laminated maple construction, and a single built-in Benedetto A-6 humbucking pickup. The 14 1/2″ x 2 1/4″ body dimensions are perfect for easy travel or guitarists of diminutive stature, and make this guitar as comfortable to play as any instrument could be.
Happy birthday to our beloved CEO and President, Howard Paul! We’re not sure anyone loves that jazz guitar life more than him, so here’s to many more years filled with gigs, concerts, jams, and hangs!
Here’s a big Benedetto thanks to the Savannah Country Day School STEM department for inviting us to their stunning new facility and then popping by for a tour. Besides learning about the design, engineering, and construction processes for a Benedetto guitar, they also ran into the Andy model named for SCDS alumni, Andy Paul.
In the spring of 1923, the world saw for the first time one of Lloyd Loar’s finest creations: the first modern archtop guitar to incorporate violinistic appointments including an end block mounted tailpiece and f-style sound holes.
Today we honor the 100 year anniversary of the Modern Archtop Guitar with 3 custom Americana models appointed in homage. They were built using exceptional woods, non-cutaway 17″ x 3″ body, violin style tailpiece, elongated, bound finger rest, stylized fretboard end, and a gorgeous, wash-in Antiqueburst finish. Collectors and players will agree these are the dream guitars for any swing guitarist, perfectly suited to bridge the gap between a bygone era and contemporary playability and sonic capabilities.
Congrats to Steve Knight on his recent four star review in Down Beat magazine! You can purchase “Persistence” from his website, steveknight.net.
What an INCREDIBLE weekend celebrating the life and legacy of the one-and-only Pat Martino! Huge thanks to Joe Donofrio and Howard Paul for cat-wrangling all of this… It will certainly go down in history as one of the great events in jazz guitar history.
We couldn’t blame you if you mistook this custom 16-B for a Bravo Elite. When the customer couldn’t decide between the two models we simply reminded them that custom guitars are just as fun as standard models… why not have the best of both worlds!?
