BG CEO and President, Howard Paul had an rare opportunity to bring this minty Cremona home as a part of his personal collection. Built by Bob in 1982 it has incredible resonance and is an incredibly fun piece of Benedetto history.

A great rendition of a classic standard by Benedetto Artist, Brian Nova!
Please give a warm Benedetto welcome to our newest Artist/Educator, Dr. Wayne Goins! Wayne has a Bravo Deluxe in the works that will give a nod to the custom 17″ guitar pictured in his hands which was built for one of his inspirations, Kenny Burrell.
Wayne is an accomplished performer (Kenny Burrell, Bobby Watson, Clark Terry, Joe Lovano, Jimmy McGriff, et al), educator (Distinguished Professor of Music and Director of Jazz Studies at Kansas State University), and author (“Blues All Day Long: The Jimmy Rogers Story”, and countless articles in various publications). You can expect to hear him swinging Benedetto style in the near future.
Romero Lubambo happened into La Cremona Azzurra a few weeks ago… I think it’s fair to say he likes it! That guitar will be in Arvada, Colorado this weekend for the Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival. Come say hello and meet it in person!
This gorgeous, all maple Bambino Deluxe with a book matched veneer on the top and back has to be one of the more impressive specimens from recent history. The Fratello motif fret markers are icing on the cake… we can see why the lucky customer is so excited for this one to ship out!
