Premiere craftsmanship and pedigree, a carved top, and a single pickup for a gig-friendly jazz box.

With the 16B Hollow Body Archtop Electric Guitar Bob Benedetto brings back a little nostalgia with body lines of his custom-made 16" guitars from the 1990s. This was the pattern (16-B) that graced guitars made for Bucky Pizzarelli, Joe Diorio, Ron Eschete, Howard Alden, Jimmy Bruno, Chris Standring, John Pizzarelli and other world-class players and esteemed customers.

The shape differs from the Bravo body lines (see sku# H70180) with softer, narrower shoulders and a slightly less pronounced cutaway. The 16-B has a parallel braced, carved spruce top and flamed maple back and sides. The inlaid "Benedetto" logo is abalone.

This model is offered in standard Antiqueburst. It is the most gig-friendly carved guitar in Benedetto's line, remarkably responsive and feedback resistant. Affordability and pedigree all rolled into one ultra-comfortable 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."
