Guitar Of The Week - Musician's Friend Private Reserve

Musician's Friend Private Reserve is thrilled to add an outstanding new line  of fine guitars by Benedetto. Our featured Guitar Of The Week is the Americana  model, one of Benedetto's best values ever for a carved archtop! Personally  designed by Bob Benedetto specifically to take advantage of their vast inventory  of fine instrument-grade tonewoods, this master grade model has been built to  have an extraordinary acoustic voice and perfect qualities when amplified. 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 a single 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," Robert says. Become a proud owner  of one of his special Benedetto archtop guitars. Order yours today!
