Handmade exclusively by Robert Benedetto in 1976 - both a guitar and violin maker. Every aspect of this guitar has been designed, built and tuned to present the premium tonal palette for the most discriminating player. From its hand-selected woods, ebony cello-style tailpiece, and finely carved re-curve in the top and back, to its aesthetically classic design And, its tone is unmatched. Warm lows, colorful mids and shimmering highs can be effortlessly coaxed from this instrument, creating a piece of fine art that sounds impeccable in the studio or onstage, and - like the finest violins - will continue to produce exquisite music from generation to generation.
