2007 Benedetto Bambino Deluxe

No name is more associated with contemporary archtop guitars than that of Robert Benedetto. In a career that stretches back nearly half a century, Bob pioneered refinements in sound and playability that set the standard for the modern archtop guitar. Born in New York City, Bob began building archtop guitars in the 1960s, quickly attracting a clientele that reads like the "Who's Who" of jazz guitar: Bucky Pizzarelli, Chuck Wayne, Joe Diorio, Cal Collins, Johnny Smith, Jack Wilkins, Ron Eschete, Martin Taylor, Howard Alden, John Pizzarelli, Andy Summers, Jimmy Bruno and Kenny Burrell have all played Bob's guitars. Beginning in 1999, Bob took a more managerial role by overseeing the production of his guitars at larger shops (first at Fender's Custom Shop and later at the current Benedetto factory in Savannah, GA.)

The Bambino model is designed to provide Benedetto's famous tone and playability in a small bodied instrument that is both feedback resistant and affordable. Ideal for the gigging professional, the Bambino's fine grained laminate spruce top and laminate maple sides produce a warm and sonorous tone that doesn't suffer from the feedback issues of acoustically resonant, all solid wood instruments.. The A6 humbucker delivers a warm, full, and detailed tone that is at home in styles ranging from traditional bebop and swing to modern fusion and funk. Blindfolded, one would be hard-pressed to differentiate the amplified tone of the Bambino from even Benedetto's most prestigious flagship models like the Cremona and La Venezia. The Bambino is a testament to Benedetto's lutherie genius and arguably one of the best deals in arcthop guitars.

Aesthetically, the Bambino features the clean, sleek, cello inspired look first pioneered by the legendary James D'Aquisto. The fingerboard is free of fret markers, except for Benedetto's signature floral inlay at the 12th fret. The ebony cello style tailpiece pairs nicely with the attractive ebony fingerboard rest, adjustable bridge, tuning buttons, and tone/volume knobs. As one would expect from Benedetto, the workmanship is all beyond flawless, with every detail executed to the utmost perfection.

The petite 14 1/2" body and lightweight construction make this instrument about as comfortable as it gets. Furthermore, the ultra-low 2.4mm action allows you to execute even the most difficult passages with ease while producing a buzz free, clean tone. Come and find out why so many of the top professionals have chosen the Bambino, you won't be disappointed!
