Manhattan™

The Manhattan guitar has become the signature model of the Benedetto archtop line. Made to Bob’s exacting standards, the Manhattan consists of only the finest materials, designs and craftsmanship, including the Benedetto fine–lined binding package, unbound ebony finger rest and Benedetto cello–style tailpiece. Painstakingly selected tonewoods, and individually voiced plates assure the ultimate in archtop beauty, tonality and playability. Imitated but never equaled, the Manhattan has raised the standard of carved top guitars and is truly the instrument by which all other archtops are measured.
