Up for consideration is a 2008 Benedetto Bambino Deluxe electric guitar and original hardshell case.
This guitar is from Benedetto's Professional Series and then in a unique custom color, Blue Blaze, from the ONE-OFF series, which are personally constructed and signed by Bob Benedetto himself. This is an amazing-sounding, great-looking, and great-playing guitar that is all-original and still in excellent condition. This guitar is in VERY LIMITED production (only 1 of 2 ever made to date), so here is a great opportunity to get this wonderful BENEDETTO Bambino Deluxe in excellent condition, and save over $1,000 bucks!!!

with a satisfaction
guaranteed, 3-day return policy. This is a world-class electric
archtop guitar, with a fast, straight neck, and wonderful tone from the Benedetto A-6 pickup. The guitar has incredible sustain, and the control and "feel" when played through the amp, and must be experienced to be believed, as the guitar really comes alive under your fingers.

The guitar is in excellent cosmetic and playing condition, as it was purchased new, and is a 1-owner guitar. It comes with all the original paperwork and accessories in the original case. The guitar has no structural issues, just some wear on the PU cover, and some light marks on the back. It was never gigged, only used in a non-smoking teaching studio.
Here are 12 quick, 1-take MP3 sound files of myself playing
this guitar, to give you an idea of what to expect. The
guitar has great tone, sustain, and body, and is very easy and very fun to play. The guitar is going through a Dr. Z MAZ Junior 18w 2x10 tube amp, and then stereo mic'ed with a Neumann U87 and a Sennheiser MD441 and recorded straight into a Sony PCM D1 flash recorder, and MP3s were made in Logic, with no EQ or effects.

In short, this guitar is a World-Class electric archtop concert and/or recording guitar,
and it would make
a great guitar for live gigs, as well as for studio work. It is tone monster, very fun to play, and the excellent sustain and attack give the instrument the flexibility to play in a lot of different styles. This is a great guitar from the master luthier himself, in a rare custom color, yet priced low enough to still be affordable for the working musician.
