Marc Beneteau OM Cedar and Padauk, 2011

Marc Beneteau OM Cedar and Padauk, 2011

This Marc Beneteau OM was built during 2011 at the Beneteau Guitars shop in St. Thomas, Ontario.   Marc has been building since 1974, originally in Ottawa.   He is largely self taught, though he’s taken inspiration from Jean Larrivee’s work.   Many prominent Canadian builders worked directly for or with Larrivee, but Marc did not, instead taking cues from Larrivee’s influences from classical guitar building, which produces a result quite different from the Martin – Gibson building styles.
