About This Listing

Every once in a while a luthier I have had some connection with comes up with a surprise, one of them unknown to me spent four years with Bob Benedetto , during that time working on hundreds of guitars and carving the neck on Bobs personal guitar Ben got to build his own  guitar a Benedetto Sinfonietta of which Bob signed off on all aspects of the build, with the headstock signed by him a personal message scribed in pencil inside the the guitar which can be seen in an image and of course the memory of working in such a great shop in a small five man team .

Ben was there for from 2011-2015, Bob retiring two years into his time there , but he still appeared to sign off on the work.
