Benny Monson

Benjamin (Ben-yah-men) Mikel (Michael) Monson (Mun-sun) is from Minnesota. He started at Third Coast in the autumn of 2008. Prior to his employment, he attended a building course at Vermont Instruments in… Vermont.

Benny is one of the nicest techs in the shop.  He refinishes guitars, refrets guitars, and builds (and rebuilds) guitars. He’s also one of the banjo specialists here at Third Coast.

If he’s not answering questions for his bio, you just might catch him shaking his hips to the new Justin Timberlake record, strumming on his self-built “Tallgrass Tall-ecaster”, or making his baby  laugh with the endless faces he makes at her.

    Benny, I just wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did recently on the 1960 Gibson ES-125t that I gave my son Steven. It plays and sounds amazing.
