"I have been playing Beneteau guitars for over a dozen years. Since that time Marc has been a wise and dear friend. I own three Beneteau instruments... a Mahogany OM, a Rosewood 13 fret Nick Lucas and a Koa Tenor ukulele. For one reason or another ,depending on the moment, I play at least one of them everyday, without fail."
