Bucky Pizzarelli and his Benedetto 7-String Archtop Guitar

In 2003, I had the privilege of seeing and hearing Bucky Pizzarelli play a private concert in Texas. As much as I was awed by his amazing playing, I was equally awed by his Benedetto 7-String archtop. Bucky Pizzarelli was inlayed in bridge, so I'm guessing this is his custom-designed, signature model.The concert was amazing, and I went home wanting a Benedetto 7-string archtop guitar. Of course, if you want a Benedetto guitar model, you better have $30,000 in your pocket. I can dream, can't I?
