It’s Halloween, the official start to the holiday season… While it may be a tad early, the spookiest thing we can think of is Christmas without a Benedetto under the tree! We have a handful of guitars ready to go in Bob’s Boutique, with just a few more that will be ready in time. So, if you or somebody you love would like a Benedetto by Christmas (and who wouldn’t?), we recommend clicking over to the Boutique or shooting us a message about upcoming guitars: email@example.com
Be sure to check out this video interview from Jazz Guitar Today featuring BG Artist Jocelyn Gould talking about her new album, “Sonic Bouquet.”
This gorgeous 16-B shipped out this week and we couldn’t be prouder. Adorned in the 45th Anniversary version of our Autumnburst finish, the custom options on this one are almost exactly like those of BG President and CEO, Howard Paul’s personal guitar.
Completing his 77th trip around the sun is only one of the many feats we can attribute to Bob Benedetto. Here’s to the best one yet and many, many more: Happy birthday, Bob!
We simply must share these incredibly kind words from Rodney Jones regarding his new 16-B:
“The Benedetto 16-B is a work of art, and a “working” work of art. It plays and sounds so beautifully, it gives wings to the heart song inside and lets the music flow on silken tones out into the world.
“It is a truly magnificent instrument. I could not love it more or even suggest any way to make it better.
“Any player who is looking for the finest jazz guitar that is out there, would be hard pressed to find anything in the league of the Benedetto 16-B.
“I will be using it, and breaking it in, and loving it every step.
“I don’t know what is in the water down there in Georgia, but, whatever you all are doing and drinking, keep doing it.”
We teased Randy Napoleon’s new 16-B a few weeks back, but we finally have the glamour shots to share!
Benedetto Artist, Rodney Jones has more accolades and credits than we have time for… all you need to know right now is that his primary instrument for the last several years has been a Bambino Deluxe, so much so he wore a hole in the finish (as photographed at the recent Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival… even the equally inimitable Ed Cherry is impressed from the background). With the milage noted, Rodney now has this stunning 16-B in his quiver. You’ll have to catch him at one of many gigs in NYC to know which guitar will be his number one now, but if you can’t catch him there, or aren’t hip to his playing, you need to go buy all the records and books with his name on them right away, be it side man or leader.
Big thanks to members of the Uni-Big Band from Halle, Germany for visiting us yesterday! If you are in the Savannah area, you can hear them performing at the Tybee Island Pier at 5:00PM on Saturday, October 7th.
Check out this totally unique, custom ordered Bravo Deluxe featuring dual Lollar Novel 90 pickups! This one carries all the class a Benedetto has to offer but dips in the direction of the blues. What a great vision from this lucky customer!
