Benedetto Bravo 2011 Opulent Brown

Sorry, this listing has ended.


9.8 of 10 Condition (some ultralight, very superficial scratching overall)

It's been a long time since Bob Benedetto burst upon the guitar scene by hand-building guitars that attracted the attention of many of the worlds finest jazz guitarists. Guitars built by Bob  himself still command tens of thousands of dollars.
This one is one of Bob's factory made guitars which are very close to the hand crafted ones in terms of sound, playability and build quality. The Bravo was designed to gratify the player’s need for a tastefully–detailed, rich and full–sounding thin–body that they could travel with—the next generation archtop guitar. It utilizes lightweight laminated spruce top and flamed maple back construction. The Bravo features a flamed maple neck, gorgeous abalone floral inlay at the 12th fret and the Benedetto A–6 humbucking pickup. Crafted for the player who has longed to express himself or herself on an instrument of the highest order, there simply is no substitute for the Benedetto pedigree.
