2017 Benedetto 16-B Bene 16. Condition is Used.

From the Benedetto website “With the 16-B 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 with softer, narrower shoulders and a slightly less pronounced cutaway. The new 16-B has a parallel braced, carved spruce top and flamed maple back and sides. The 16-B borrows its binding package, headstock shape, tuners and EPS tailpiece from the Bravo Deluxe, and the A-6 built-in gold pickup from the Bravo model. The inlaid “Benedetto” logo is abalone. This model is offered in standard Antiqueburst and Opulent Brown finishes only. It is the most gig-friendly carved guitar in our line, remarkably responsive and feedback resistant. Affordability and pedigree all rolled into one ultra-comfortable guitar.”
