The flagship of the Benedetto line, Bob personally selects the tonewoods, reviews the voicing and inspects each Manhattan model. That's the reason this guitar has a strong acoustic tone and amazing amplified voice. The Opulent Brown finish is just stunning and the Benedetto abbreviated fingerrest and cell style tailpiece complete the look. This one has been upgraded with a hand made Kent Armstrong PAF pickup. First rate in every way.

 Benedetto Manhattan - Archtop Archtop Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"The name Benedetto is synonymous with archtop design and construction. Bob pioneered and refined many of the techniques and stylings in use today. This guitar is amazing, it's extremely loud played acoustically and that resonance comes through when amplified as well. Every detail is well executed and the playability is superb. We love the Opulent Brown burst it's subdued and sophisticated. The woods here are top notch, the back has dramatic flaming and the sides and neck are equally attractive. It's a pleasure to have this guitar in the shop, even though it may be a short visit..." - Paul Heumiller
