Here's another beautiful Bob Benedetto Guild: a 2004 Artist Award play by Tobias Hoffman.
Just read and looked at some of Jaguar's unbelievable articles and guitar collection. I say the COVID - 19 ISOLATION will be over before one would be able to complete the entire read. By some chance you have not looked or read, let me recommend it!!!!Jaguar, you are a man of few words, but you speak through your collection of guitars and amps. WOW!
Cougar, in my experience, determination is the key to learning. Don't be intimidated by those cords that Tobias is playing. Like any other chord, all you need to do is find them, practice them and explore! It's only a matter of time. Muscle memory is the key.No cowboy chords for that boy!
I'm not sure if the artist was actually involved at this point, Bill. Maybe. Or, maybe they were just re-issuing something from the old days. Bob Benedetto certainly made some magnificent jazz boxes.This must have been during a period when Johnny Smith was once again endorsing the Artist Award. It is cool to see his signature on the headstock faceplate logo. Great chord/melody playing and beautiful tone from this guitar and amp setup.
Chazmo, sorry for being confusing. My incoming X-700 Stuart Benedetto is a 2004. It was made when Guild was in Corona. The serial number with CBB1011. Westerly Benedettos' serial numbers begin with Gbb****.I'm not sure if the artist was actually involved at this point, Bill. Maybe. Or, maybe they were just re-issuing something from the old days.

Rich, why do you think this is a 2004? Wouldn't it have been in Westerly? Forgive my ignorance.
I think that I remember reading that Johnny Smith was once again associated with Guild in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. I don’t think they could use his name w/o his permission. But, Hans would know for sure.I'm not sure if the artist was actually involved at this point. Or, maybe they were just re-issuing something from the old days.
Shelby, it actually arrived early...came yesterday afternoon. I waited for it to get acclimatized then in the early evening opened the case. What a beauty! While tightening the strings the "G" string snapped, so now I'm faced with a dilemma, either to just replace the "G" string or put on another set. BTW, the strings on it are new, installed by the seller.Rich
Could today have a little extra excitement and anticipation in it?
If course, we want to know!
