- acoustic guitars
Marc Beneteau opened his first shop in 1974 in Ottawa, Ontario inspired by Canadian guitar maker Jean Larriveé to pursue a career in luthiery. Since that time Beneteau has been exploring the mystery and intricacies that make the perfect acoustic guitar. Beneteau has always been a one-man operation and he has made over 700 guitars so far from his workshop in St Thomas Ontario. Beneteau acoustic guitars are used by two time North American Fingerstyle Champion Don Ross, world renowned Celtic guitarist, Tony McManus as well as top players, Craig D'Andrea, David Gillis, Paul Asbell, Del Vezeau, and Ray Montford.
