    Premiere craftsmanship, single pickup, modern sound holes, and a flamed maple veneer top.

    This is a Benedetto Bambino Deluxe Hollow Body Archtop Electric Guitar with a Jazz Attitude…this deluxe version maintains the dimensional specifications of the Bambino model (see sku# H70181) but adds modern sound holes, a flamed maple veneer top, gold hardware, and a deluxe binding package (w/b/w/b/w) to the body, neck and headstock.

    The sound holes enhance the acoustic volume to the unplugged instrument and give the guitar a more traditional archtop look with only a single pickup placed in the rhythm position. To show off the beautiful flamed top, this instrument is available in a natural finish.

    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."
