GET IT WHILE IT’S HOT

Finally, the little guy everyone has been waiting for! We officially relaunched the Andy model back in January, taking orders and starting on a few just for Bob’s Boutique. This is the first of those, so we don’t expect it will stick around too long!

The Andy model is the ultimate travel guitar. The 23″ scale is super comfortable and easily adaptable. With a 3″ depth and built in humbucker, nobody will be able to sonically discern this special guitar from its larger 16″ brothers and sisters in the Benedetto line.

HAPPY CAMPER

We are excited to welcome Mark Altekruse to the Benedetto family! As you can tell, Mark is thrilled with his new Cherry Bravo and will put it to great use both at home and out and about on gigs (when the time comes). Bravo, Mark, and Cherry on!

HOME SWEET HOME

A throw back to when Seattle-based Benedetto Artist Brian Nova received his new guitar in 2017 – an opulent brown Bravo Elite. It’s “home sweet home!”

Keep an eye out for Brian’s performances throughout the US and around the world.

VIOLINBURST FOR THE WIN

This stunner was completed at the end of last week and is slated for a local owner with great taste in guitars. This Bravo Elite is totally standard with the exception of a custom inlay on the truss rod cover. Beautiful, understate, and with all the class of any fine, European violin from the past.

MY LITTLE BOAT, VOCAL VERSION


The final video in this series! We used a shorter, instrumental version of this tune to demonstrate one of the guitars from Bob’s Boutique but Howard and Maggie wanted to get a vocal version down as well. Howard, of course, is playing his personal 16-B 7-string built with fine, European tone woods, modified x-bracing, a violin style tailpiece, traditional, f-style sound holes, and finished with a natural top and Miner Benedetto Cabernet stained back neck and sides.

MEMORY LANE

Every once in awhile we get a nice note from our customers with a fantastic set of nostalgic photos. This one came from Skot Koenig:

“It’s been 20 years with my Cremona Fiorita – not many days have gone by when I haven’t played it. With all that has happened and is happening, its emphasized one’s appreciation of the people and things that have enriched our lives.”

We post guitar glamour shots all the time but this fantastic, action photo by Cameron Bloom captures Benedetto Artist, Chico Pinheiro and his trusty Bravo Elite under stage lights in all its dusty glory. A polishing cloth is in the mail, Chico!

OVER THE RAINBOW

We just love all the many colors of guitar available in Bob’s Boutique right now! Pictured are mostly Bravo Deluxe models but there is a 16-B or two hiding out as well.
