Premiere craftsmanship and pedigree, a carved top, a single pickup, and a unique La Venezia headstock shape.
The Americana Hollow Body Archtop Electric Guitar is one of Benedetto's most affordable carved archtops ever! Designed by Bob specifically to take advantage of their vast inventory of fine musical instrument grade tonewoods, they have produced this master grade model with an extraordinary acoustic voice and perfect amplified qualities.
The Americana's 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.
Robert Benedetto is widely acknowledged as today's foremost maker of archtop guitars. Over a prolific four-decade career, he has personally handcrafted nearly 800 instruments, including 500 archtops. "My roots are in jazz guitar. It's been my love and my focus since Day One."
