SOLD!! 1993 Marc Beneteau Steel String Acoustic Guitar


Instrument Categories: , ,


  Here is a nice 1993 Marc Beneteau Steel String Acoustic Guitar. It sounds great, and is in good playing condition; over the years it’s had a treble side repair and partial refinish. There are a few small dings on the top; the guitar has been played.

Marc Beneteau has built acoustic guitars since 1974, and now works out of his shop in St. Thomas, Ontario.

With a cedar top, mahogany for the back, sides and neck and Pau Ferro for the fingerboard, this Marc Beneteau Steel String guitar has a lovely, full and sparkling tone.

Pricing $2,495.00 Canadian with hardshell case. **this item is SOLD!! No longer available
Neck Mahogany neck with unbound Pau Ferro fingerboard and headplate. The neck is attached using a bolt and tenon joint; this will make the inevitable neck reset a much easier task.

Finish Clear Satin lacquer finish on body, clear gloss lacquer on the neck. The treble side has been refinished – at some point, the side was damaged and patched, and rather than do a spot touchup, the side from the tailblock to heel was refinished.
Hardware/electronics Chrome Gotoh tuning machines, bone nut and saddle, undersaddle pickup installed with endpin jack.
Playability/Action This guitar plays very well and comfortably.
