2013 Holo Modele Nouveau

2013 Holo Modele Nouveau
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 yourself!

This is Bob's Modele Nouveau which is played by numerous luminaries of the style, including Stefan Wrembel, Gonzalo Bergara, Alfonso Ponticelli, and Mathieu Chatelain.

The body is standard Selmer size (15 3/4") and the scale is 670mm.

This guitar is impossibly light at 3.8lbs! Most Duponts are around 4lbs, Dell Artes around 4.5 lbs.

The top is made from aged spruce, back and sides are made of Indian rosewood, and the neck is walnut with a Busato style rosewood spline. The fingerboard is made of rosewood. The interior is laquered in the tradition of the original Selmers.

This Nouveau has a wonderfully complex and mature tone, with chimey highs and a robust and complex midrange. Bob let this guitar age in his shop for five years so that it would develop the sort of bass response that only comes with time. Like finely aged Scotch, this instrument is smooth, smokey, and complex. All around, another astounding example of Bob's craft!
