Benedetto® Pickups

The Signature Jazz Guitar Pickup.

 

The “S” and “B” Ebonova Series: Both “S” and “B” pickups are naturally-voiced. A good archtop guitar has balance, warmth and richness. These pickups mirror those same qualities and bring out the true acoustic essence of a fine guitar. The unique black-flamed Ebonova covers with the embedded Benedetto logo reflect the natural figuring of the guitar’s tone woods.

 

S-Series ­ These pickups were designed for the purist who plays a true acoustic archtop without a pickup routed in the guitar’s top. With the “S” installed, the guitar isn’t, strictly speaking, an electric guitar: it’s an amplified acoustic. Designed to be compatible with steel, nickel and bronze strings.

Description: Pickguard (floating) mount, low profile, humbucking, 6- and 7-string archtop guitar pickups.
