Keeping up with…Bob and Cindy Benedetto



Jazz Guitar Today checked in with a busy Bob and Cindy Benedetto.

Bob Benedetto: Although I no longer personally make guitars, I stay in touch with the company in Savannah.  They continue to make beautiful jazz guitars. Nowadays I spend my time making curly maple palm planes for guitar making, which keeps me active in the lutherie community. And I love staying busy!

Cindy Benedetto: After retiring from Benedetto Guitars in Savannah in 2014, I missed posting news and photos on the website. Now I stay busy with our Benedetto Guitars Archives site. It gives me a creative outlet and a way to post 51 years of photos and letters (long before emails!). Lots of great memories. And I don’t play golf or tennis, so this is my passion!  Please check it out the archives at
