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.
The incomparable Rodney Jones doing his thing a Zinc Bar in Manhattan.

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. email@example.com. 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!
It’s Taylor Powell’s last day and we’re wishing him all the best after half a decade in the White Wood Department! Taylor came to us from his home state of Michigan in 2017 with a Journeyman Program Certification from Galloup School of Guitar Building and Repair. We are certain that his meticulous nature and great ability to focus on detail will serve him in whatever endeavor comes next… Thank you for a great five years of necks, frets, and fingerboards, Taylor!
Click here to read a fantastic interview with the great Howard Alden published on the Henriksen Amplifiers blog. He details his early days working with Bob to design the perfect Benedetto and also tells about his plans to attend the Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival September 9-11th, 2022 in Arvada, Colorado (we’ll be there too)!
Enjoy a sneak peek of these three, limited edition, non-cutaway Americana models that will commemorate 100 years of the modern archtop guitar. They will be ready to move into finish when the luthiers get back next week, and boy do we have something spectacular planned for them!
but warmly and with a touch of reverb. Happy Fourth from all of us at Benedetto Guitars!!!
