Pat Martino Signature Model™

Pat Martino emerged from the jazz-rich Philadelphia music scene in 1961 and established himself over the subsequent fifty years as one of the most important and prolific jazz guitarists of all time. His work with legends like Sonny Stitt, Gene Ammons, Richard Groove Holmes, Chick Corea, Jack McDuff, and so many more, link him to the very fabric of jazz history. He has recorded for every major record label, performed on every major jazz festival stage, and been nominated for the very top echelon of awards and readers polls. He has been a MAJOR influence to at least two generations of guitarists. So, as he entered his 50th year in the music profession, it became evident that these golden years should be spent touring with a guitar befitting a jazz legend – designed by Bob Benedetto.

The Pat Martino Signature Model took nearly a year of collaboration between Bob and Pat to develop the perfect instrument for Pat to use every single day on the road, in the studio, while conducting clinics, and while composing new music and revisiting the classics. A very light weight, chambered mahogany body, carved maple top, fast ebony fingerboard, and two A6 Benedetto pickups with dual volume and tone controls, make this instrument specific to Pat’s exacting needs: all without losing the Benedetto pedigree, uncompromising workmanship, and unmatched balance and tonal performance. Available with Pat’s signature on the fingerrest, Pat’s famously heavy-gauge strings, and in his favorite finishes – Black on Black or Autumnburst on Black.  Includes signed Certificate of Provenance by both Pat Martino and Bob Benedetto.
