Salas or Benavente?

  1. Hi. I'm very close to buying a Salas 5 string, but have also been offered a pretty good deal on a Benavente 5.

    Any advice on respective strengths of the 2 builders?

    I think I'm leaning towards the Salas, because John DiMaggio at Bassalone (who's selling the Salas) seems to be just super to deal with, and I value that a lot.
