  7. Benedetto (used, 1996) Manhattan Model

    Benedetto (used, 1996) Manhattan Model

    Tag No 32-3570 Used
    #37196, in a tawny reddish sunburst, in excellent condition showing only the slightest signs of playing time, with original brown faux alligator hard shell 5-ply case.

    Bob’s Manhattan is one of his more modern designs, having a neo-classical fingerboard (ebony with no inlays but a border of white-black-white purfling on each of its three sides), with black side dots, having no decoration on the polished ebony headplate – only the stylized “Benedetto” pearl inlaid logo with the semi-triangular underline.

    We present to you a guitar that was, in its time, made entirely by the builder, himself, that was extremely well maintained by its prior owner.   It does, indeed, set a high standard for a hand-crafted, beautifully designed acoustic-electric, full depth, outspoken and delightfully melodic archtop guitar.

    Our Discount Price is $12,367.00 and Our Cash Discount Price is $11,995.00.

    Benedetto (used, 1989) Manhattan Model

    Tag No 32-3564 Used
    #17289, honey blonde, in excellent original condition with a newer red Calton hard shell case.

    According to Mr. Benedetto's book, How to Build an Archtop Guitar, this very Manhattan was originally sold to Mandolin Brothers, Ltd. in April 1989.   It appears to be the second "Manhattan" made by Bob for and was, at that time, destined for a customer named John Z.  Although it shows extremely minor signs of playing time, the guitar is overall in excellent condition. The neck is straight.  This is a bona fide Bob Benedetto hand-made Manhattan, the more cosmopolitan style 17” full body archtop for which this builder is well known.  It sounds marvelous and is a pleasure to play and behold.

    Our Discount Price is $12,367.00 and Our Cash Discount Price is $11,995.00.
