Benedetto Guitars, creating a legacy
Handmade, meticulously detailed Benedetto Guitars have been part of the legendary careers of top jazz guitarists for nearly five decades. Adding to the allure of the Benedetto brand is the location of their factory – in historic, beautiful Savannah, Georgia.
“You don’t have to come to Savannah to purchase a Benedetto, but many of our clients arrange for a visit to tour our workshop and experience our beautiful and historic City,” says Howard Paul, the company’s president. With the labor and time intensive process of designing and building the guitar by hand, Benedetto will make only 100-120 guitars per year, with an average timeframe of eight months to complete each instrument. The process is completely personalized, allowing for a customized look reflecting the client.
For a musician who is looking to create great art, it only makes sense to invest in a guitar that is produced in a similar fashion.
The Benedetto Guitar is known equally for its performance quality as for its aesthetic appeal. The guitars have been featured in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, reside in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, and travel within the National Guitar Museum. In a modern world of fast, mass- produced commerce, the process of building guitars in such a unique and artful way is telling of the passion behind the brand.
