Default 2015 Marc Beneteau Model M - Lutz/Brazilian (CANADA)

Here is the Reverb link for more pictures

Asking $8000CAD, shipping to be discussed. Sale is limited to Canada only due to the Brazilian Rosewood. Shipping will be via Fedex expedited on my corporate account and delivery is typically only a few days to most destinations. If this doesn't sell fairly soon I will likely limit the sale to local only due to the colder temps and relist in the Spring ... unless I have a change of heart or financial circumstances

Marc Beneteau Model M, custom order completed in 2015. Excellent condition with only minor signs of use (ie finish swirls, a few minor dings etc) and a very minor finish crack along a few inches of the center seam just below the bridge (not a crack in the wood - Marc reinforces his seams with cleats during building). Please contact if you would like more detailed pics or explanation of anything - also open to a video chat.

This guitar has been very well maintained. This is the 5th Beneteau I have owned over the years and it's simply outstanding! The tone is lush and powerful, but completely balanced with cello-like bass tone. A dream fingerstyle guitar that excels in lower tunings. Selling for financial reasons and a desire to move towards smaller instruments.
  • Lutz spruce top w/sunburst finish
  • Brazilian Rosewood back and sides
  • 1-3/4" nut, 2-5/16" bridge spacing
  • 25.4" scale length
  • EVO Gold frets - .047 x .095", installed by Marc in August (like new)
  • Venetian cutaway
  • BRW pinless bridge (installed by Marc in August, replaced a pinned bridge due to preference)
  • BRW fretboard w/ BRW binding
  • BRW headstock overlays
  • 3pc neck (maple/BRW/maple) - profile is shallow D, neck thickness 20.4mm 1st fret, 22mm 9th fret. Extremely comfortable for both thumb over and back of neck placements.
  • Laskin bevel
  • Burl rosette
  • Koa binding
  • Gotoh 510 tuners
  • K&K Mini pickup
  • Calton case (Canadian, originally made for a Takamine - perfect fit!) - $1500 value

Current replacement value of this fully loaded example is in the neighbourhood of $14kUSD not including the Calton. Marc's current lead time is 24-30 months.

Please reach out with any questions/comments! Always happy to chat about Beneteaus.

Agreed, Kenny, and thanks the comment! Nice to hear from another Beneteau owner as it's pretty lonely here in the "outside US" forum

I've lowered the price to $8000CAD which is really my floor on this one and a great price for an instrument of this spec from one of Canada's finest luthiers. I prefer a straight sale but would be open to discussing trade possibilities for something OM-sized or smaller from Beneteau, Bown, Franklin, SCGC or Collings. Min. 1-3/4" nut, please
