2015 Holo Epiphany

2015 Holo Epiphany
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 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 genius!
