Benson (Peter)

product types: 

  • acoustic guitars


Peter Benson was a Swedish immigrant who opened a music store "Benson Music House" in Minneapolis in 1891. He was a manufacturer and importer of guitars, violins and other instruments. While he certainly made Benson branded guitars in Minneapolis (which were literally branded with a P. Benson logo burned onto the inside of the body), others believe some were also made by Lyon and Healy, Larson Brothers or even Martin.
