Benedetto Supreme

Benedetto Supreme

Bob Benedetto established himself as the Supreme builder of archtop guitars in 1979 with this stunning creation (inventory number AR3426). The Supreme was Bob's top model, and he made only 8 of these 18 1/4"-wide beauties.

If you've been keeping up with guitar news, you know that you can't just call Bob and order a Supreme -- or any other Benedetto guitar. In his new consulting position with Fender/Guild, he has stopped making Benedettos. But you can own this example of archtop lutherie at its finest for $18,500.

This instrument is SOLD
