2014 Holo Traditional

2014 Holo Traditional
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 Traditional model which The body is standard Selmer size (15 3/4") and the scale is 670mm.

The top is made from Romanian spruce and features a heat-bent pliage and the soundboard design & characteristics of late period Selmers. The back and sides are constructed of highly figured rosewood and the neck is walnut . There is no truss rod, but the neck is reinforced with carbon strips which will keep it eternally straight. The fingerboard is made of ebony. The interior is laquered in the tradition of the original Selmers. The sides have two bound seams, one in the typical place around the endpin. Bob also bound another seam right on the bend of the cutaway which is a nice touch!

The rosewood bridge is a new compensated design....looks really cool and does a great job intonating the guitar.

This sound of this wonderful Traditional model is pure Selmer! It posses that elusive Selmer bass that it is warm and full, yet not overbearing or muddy. The complexity and thickness of the mids adds an indelible charm to the tone that is best described as "rich" with a satisfying crispness in the high end. There's no doubt, this one really brings you back to the golden era of Gypsy jazz!
