Benedetto Americana

 

The Americana is one of our most affordable carved archtops ever! Designed by Bob specifically to take advantage of our vast inventory of fine musical instrument grade tonewoods, we have produced this master grade model with an extraordinary acoustic voice and perfect amplified qualities. Its unique La Venezia headstock shape, Deluxe binding, singular abalone and pearl inlay on a black faceplate, and hand graduated top and back with one built-in pickup will give the jazz guitarist the ultimate full sized gigging guitar.

$11,500, includes Deluxe Hardshell Case
