Distressed with the power of oxygen and fire, this 00-12 has a tone of it's own and the finish checking of a guitar 50 years older. Hand made in Ahipara in the Far North by David Benavides this blues monster features a solid Adirondack top and bracing, solid Sapele back, sides and neck, Pau Ferro fingerboard and bridge all with that aged nitro gloss finish. The unbleached bone nut and saddles look fantastic too. 

The Gibson style scale length of 24.75" makes this a really fun guitar to play and it never sounds bright or brittle, just warm, crisp and cosy.

Love the 00-12

I'm the lucky beggar that has purchased this awesome guitar. David Benavides is making amazing instruments. I have never felt a guitar so much before in my life. The whole guitar comes alive. I can feel it vibrating in my chest, hands , arms and legs. Even the neck is vibrating under my left hand. This wont be my last Benavides! Do yourself a favor and get your hands on one and give a blast, it will surprise you.

Thanks Ed, you were wonderful to deal with and what an awesome shop. Really good vibe

Thanks Bruce.
