1966 Benedetto La Venezia CUSTOM


⭕ 1996 La Venezia custom made by Bob Benedetto himself for the owner of Just Jazz guitar magazine.


This guitar just sings. True archtop tone and very smooth playability. Includes original case in good condition.


Very rare, and very different from a production La Venezia of today. I was able to find 5 tiny nicks on the body otherwise PRISTINE.


Recently had a local master luthier look through it, and it checked out remarkably in super condition.


A guitar for a lifetime and more.
