Bob Holo Traditional vs Nouveau

Everyone now knows my passion for Bob Holo’s Guitars. But a main question keep me :
What the difference between those 2 models ?
Is someone able to explain it ?
Thank you very much !!


  • Bob talks at some length about both:

    @Atasante as the name would suggest, the Traditional model is an attempt to recreate the drier, more traditional sound you hear in the best vintage Selmers and Busatos. Bob based this model heavily on numerous vintage Selmers and Busatos which he had the opportunity to study while they were for sale at DjangoBooks. You can never make a new guitar sound just like an old vintage one, but most would agree Bob got about as close as you can get with this model.

    The Nouveau is again, as the name would suggest, a more modern sounding guitar. It has a lot of Selmer/Busato DNA but has been tuned for a more modern, balanced tone that is open and complex.

    Both are fantastic and suite a variety of players.
