    SOLD - The Bambino is a high-quality, compact archtop guitar hand-crafted in the Benedetto workshop in 2008. Great for gigging, its small size and maple laminate body makes it easy to load in and load out, and minimizes the possibility of feedback, while the full hollow construction preserves the archtop tone and “air”. Dual Benedetto A6 humbucking pickups give great clarity and classic PAF-style sound, and the coil tap adds versatility. The Bambino will surprise you with its depth of sound combined with its ease of playability.

    Unique to Benedetto guitars, the Espresso color reflects the guitar’s elegance, and contrasts with the ebony appointments and chrome hardware. Comes in its original Benedetto-labeled hardshell case with key and truss rod tool. This Bambino is in excellent used condition, with only quite minor signs of wear. A Plek sticker on the back of the headstock indicates that the guitar has been plekked.

    “As its name implies, the Bambino is a baby in size…but with a big voice. This extraordinary model is a prayer answered for the musician with a lot of time on the road. Its lightweight and compact 14 ½” body is easily manageable in airport traffic or taxis. It features a laminated maple top and back, a maple neck shaped for playing comfort as only a Benedetto can be. With two chrome plated Benedetto A–6 pickups, it’s all you’ll ever need! So, if you’re looking for the tone of a big jazz box but need the compact comfort of a smaller guitar, this model was made for you.”
