A single strum of the Beneteau 000-12 is all it takes to hear the byproduct of Marc Beneteau’s decades of dedication to his craft. Marc’s attention to detail has been consistently honed since he first began building custom guitars in 1974 in Ottawa, Ontario. His tireless pursuit to unveil the mysteries and intricacies within the processes of lutherie has lead him to a unique process that is completely his own. Working entirely alone, Marc assures that each guitar is made from only the finest tone woods, and is built to the highest possible standards each step of the way. 

This 000-12 model embodies Beneteau’s unwavering passion. It emits a pleasingly woody tone, with strong fundamental frequencies and a timeless resonance. This guitar thrives in all settings, from old school blues to traditional finger-style, and is a prime example of Marc Beneteau’s masterful work.
