Description

at one of Bob Benedetto's guitar making classes in 1992 but the instrument was not completed. The parts were later brought to famed luthier Giuliano's Guitar Shop in White Plains, NY. Giuliano, if you are not familiar with his name, was the one who refinished the famous D'Angelico "Fin" archtop owned by Scott Chinery. Giuliano assembled and finished the guitar to perfection. All the work is top notch especially Giuliano's finish. The guitar is signed inside by Bob Benedetto as well as Bob Moyhchi and dated 9/92. An amazing story for a brilliant guitar.

This is a great story, someone finds the pieces of this guitar years after being built in one of Benedettos workshops, brings it to master luthier Giuliano and he breaths beautiful life into it. This guitar deserved to be saved, it's absolutely lovely, simple lines, abundant voice and finished to artistic perfection. This is a wonderful chance for fans of Bob Benedetto to own a guitar that was spawned by his teaching and touched by his hands, his student's and Giuliano's. What a history.
 
You won't find an archtop of this quality in this price range. Even if it's not one built directly by Bob Benedetto, it has all of his characteristic touches and style and Giuliano is the perfect luthier to have completed it.
