Our second addition to Bob’s Boutique this week, this gorgeous Bambino model is ready to ship!
The Bambino model might just be the most versatile archtop guitar in the world… Whether it is topping the smooth jazz charts in the hands of Chris Standring, or beboping through Europe in Ulf Wakenius’ gig bag, this compact gem can handle everything from the coffee shop to Carnegie Hall and back.
Despite being supremely resistant to feedback with a small block under the bridge and its lack of sound holes, the fit and finish will trick your ears and fingers with its decidedly big sound and the evenness in response for which Benedetto guitars are known.
It’s not every day we catch Damon with a Cremona on his bench. The Cremona model is the finest iteration of our 17″ Flagship models and they are as rare as hen’s teeth. We can hardly wait to share the finished product with you!
We can’t believe how stunning this custom 16-B turned out! With premium woods, binding, and custom inlay, it just doesn’t get any better than this. This one was built to order, but we can certainly repeat with something similar should another customer have a like-minded vision.
Finally, a Bravo Deluxe is available for immediate purchase from Bob’s Boutique! This stunner features 16″x 2.5″ body dimensions with a standard 1.75″ nut width and 25″ scale, and a non-standard Blonde finish.
In the broader guitar world, “blonde” is a general description, but at Benedetto it has a very specific meaning: Our Natural finish is clear lacquer only, while Honeyblonde requires some shading intended to imply the yellow-ish patina taken on by clear lacquer over time. Blonde, however sits somewhere in the middle, offering something less stark than Natural, but more subtle than Honeyblonde.
Purchase directly for the Bob’s Boutique store on our website or contact email@example.com with inquiries.
Don’t wait until the last minute to get your tickets for the Richie Summa group at the Velvet Note in Alpharetta (just North of Atlanta) on July 30th, only a week from today! This venerable venue features fine fare, delicious drinks, and almost always sells out on the weekends.
Another Pat Martino Signature model has left the building! It’s hard to argue against the classic and classy all Black finish.

We’re getting ever closer to the 100 year anniversary of the modern archtop guitar in 2023, and getting ready this week by applying color to the special Americana model guitars we have in the works. Master Finisher, Larry Perkins has applied a wash-in burst to these three instruments (not a typical method here at Benedetto Guitars) and the result is simply stunning! Anyone interested in owning one of these unique guitars should contact us. firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget there are only 3 of them!!!
We’d like to think that if Dan Wilson keeps practicing the Gigi Gryce tune, “Minority” he’ll eventually get it up to speed… Only kidding, Dan, burning as always!
