2016 Holo Grand Epiphany
||Click the thumbnail to change view.|
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 Grand Epiphany model. The body is Favino sized (16 1/2") and the scale is 670mm.
The top is made from Romanian spruce and features a heat-bent pliage. The back and sides are constructed of
highly figured Honduran rosewood and the neck is American black 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 compensated
bridge was custom designed to maximize and enhance the tone, projection, and intonation of this instrument.
Bob used the legendary Favino design as a starting point for his own large body model. The result is a guitar which combines the classic full bodied tone of Favinos with the crisp, explosive projection that Holo guitars are known for. The bass register of this instrument is particularly robust and deep which allows for huge, pianistic sounding chords and thumpy bass lines. The prodigious low end is perfectly balanced by responsive, shimmery highs that add color to chords and sting to your leads. All in all, a perfect blend of old and new that is nothing less than an Epiphany!
