I built this guitar during my stay at Mirko Borghino´s workshop in Italy, the model of this guitar is based on a Benedetto 17".

The construction of the complete guitar has been entirely at hand following the indications and advice of Mirko.


The internal reinforcements are X Brace.


For Varnishing I used a method that I learned from the violin luthier Mikele Dobner, it consists of oil varnish mixed with natural pigments and ground minerals, It is a natural varnish that provides a beautiful color and leaves the wood vibrating in a very natural way.


The sound sllection is a 12 pole Kent Amstrong floating pick up.


The Strings are Daddario ECG24- Chromes Jazz Light 11-50.
