Andreas is always pushing the limits with guitar finishes....his purple AJL Favino was a first. And know he's got a purple Benedetto coming! Here's the prototype:
This is one of the coolest One-off Benedettos we've seen. The story is interesting: Benedetto's latest endorser, Andreas Oberg, asked for a purple Manhattan as his first Benedetto guitar. Since Bob had never done a purple guitar he wanted to make sure he got the finish right first. This is the prototype for the purple finish that is going to be on Andreas's guitar and man did it turn out nice!
Now if we can only get Benedetto to make some Gypsy guitars!!
