"Just wanted to give you the (slightly) long term verdict.....SENSATIONAL!
I cannot open the case or plug it in without a big smile. Not sure what it is exactly, but I am very pleased. What a feel AND sound, not to mention looks.  I am hoping to be a repeat customer"

      Just received Benedetto Manhattan from Gary.  The whole experience in dealing with him has been a pleasure. I found him to be honest and true to his word, and will have no hesitation on using him again. The instrument was a credit to its last owner and condition exactly as he stated to me. Good luck to Artistic Guitars in the future.
