Bob has made a name for himself over the last few years as an aficionado
of the Franco-Italian guitar designs of Selmer, Maccaferri, Busato,
Favino, etc. He spent years studying vintage Selmer style guitars
including nearly every Selmer, Favino, and Busato that has come
through our shop. He has taken on the challenge of making new
guitars that have the elusive and ineffable qualities heard in the
very best vintage Selmer type guitars. Few will doubt he has been
incredibly successful in his quest, as his guitars are now in the
hands of many of today's leading players: Rocky Gresset, Stephane
Wrembel, Mathieu Chatelain, Neil Andersson, Antoine Boyer, Alfonso
Ponticelli, etc. Bob has essentially been a "luthier for the stars"
these past few years...but now you can take home one of these gems
This is Bob's Epiphany model which The body is standard Selmer size (15 3/4") and the scale is 670mm.
The top is made from Western Red cedar and features a heat-bent pliage
and a vaulted Busato style back. The back and sides are constructed of
highly figured Honduran rosewood and the neck is walnut. A truss rod
has been installed. The fingerboard is made of rosewood. The
interior is laquered in the tradition of the original Selmers. The
bridge was custom designed to maximize and enhance the tone and
projection of this instrument.
And now the best part, the tone! Bob really did something special here
which may be the reason he named this model the "Epiphany." It's an
unusually powerful guitar with exceptional projection and a dry, direct
tone. You typically only hear this sort of attitude and character in
old, battered Busatos from the days of yore. But somehow, Bob evoked
some 1930s Parisian mojo in this beautifully built, new instrument. Pure
