Robert Benedetto

Robert Benedetto (born October 22, 1946 in The Bronx, New York) is an American luthier. He is best known for founding Benedetto Guitars, Inc. which makes hand-carved archtop guitars. Before the company became a division of Fender Musical Instruments Corporation, Benedetto made each guitar himself. Benedetto was noted for his guitars starting in the 1970's, when jazz guitarists such as Bucky Pizzarelli, Chuck Wayne, and Martin Taylor used and endorsed them.

In 2006, Benedetto ended his relationship with Fender and opened his own factory in Savannah, Georgia, partnering with businessman / guitarist Howard Paul.
