ALMOST LIKE BEING IN LOVE

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!

NATURAL BEAUTY

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!

FLASHBACK

A look back to 2018 when Davy Moony picked up his Bravo Deluxe in Savannah. We’re super excited to be seeing him in just a week’s time at the Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival.

100 YEARS LATER…

Finally, the moment we have all been waiting for! The first of three very special, commemorative Americana models has been completed. It is currently on display at the Fretboard Summit in Chicago, and will be available to inspect in Arvada, Colorado at the Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival in two weeks (unless somebody in Chicago decides to keep it… the next one isn’t far behind).

With a non-cutaway body, unique washed in burst, and bound appointments, this guitar gives a nod to the first modern archtop designed by Lloyd Loar in 1923 (hence the LL denotation in the serial number), but remains a Benedetto thru and thru, exhibiting some of Bob’s innovations; the violin style tailpiece, ideal 17″ x 3″ dimensions, and minimalist aesthetic.

A PLUS PLUS

This incredible custom 16″ built for a customer with a spectacular vision is truly a wonder… besides a surprising voice that belies its size, we’ve been colloquially referring to the back internally as “27A” flamed maple. It’s just that beautiful!

HUNGARIAN SENSATION

A beautifully filmed conversation with Hungarian guitarist, Máté Palásti. We don’t speak a word of Hungarian, but we gather from the lovely shots of his Bambino Deluxe and great sounds coming from it that it is working for him! Check out his new album, “That’s How My Guitar Sings.”
