I'm surprised to hear that professionals don't play Gibson L-5s and es175s, or Ibanez GBs, or Buscarinos, or Andersen's, or vintage Epiphones ..... Your posts remind me of the time, many years ago, when I was starting to play trumpet seriously and was told by other young players that the only horn for a serious player was a Bach Strad. That might have been the horn of choice among many an American orchestra, but it wasn't the only choice. Not was it the first choice for most jazz musicians. Likewise, Benedetto makes fine guitars but there's a whole world of choices out there, including lesser known and highly skilled solo luthiers.
