This instrument is nothing short of FANTASTIC! As roch pointed out, the price difference between this guitar and something from Hahl makes it the bargain of a lifetime. It's not often that I wax poetic about a guitar but this one deserves it! This is a players guitar, pure and simple and will not disappoint!

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 traditional model was inspired by the legendary modele 44 of Bortolo Busato. It features the typical larger 16 1/4" Busato body, 675mm scale, a bent back, and a three piece neck. The top is Romanian spruce, the back sides are highly figured Cocobolo, and the neck is American black walnut.

The tone of the instrument is positively stunning! Bob nailed the classic Busato tone, which is unparalleled in it's clarity, directness, and projection. Rhythm work is crisp and crunchy, with wonderful definition and an aggressive edge. The bass register is well balanced and not overbearing or muddy. It is complimented by shimmery, beautiful highs that yield crystal clear lead lines that sizzle and sing.

Although Bob has long been a fan of Busato's work, it is rare he actually builds a guitar in this style. Here's your chance to own a rare model from a luthier who is already among the most rarefied guitar makers in the world of Gypsy jazz!
