2016 Holo Modele Nouveau

2016 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 Alfonso Ponticelli and Mathieu Chatelain.

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

The top is made from aged spruce, the back and sides are made of Indian rosewood, and the neck is black walnut . The fingerboard is made of ebony. The interior is lacquered in the tradition of the original Selmers.

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

This instrument posses a wonderful clarity and crispness that one usually only finds in fully mature vintage instruments. Chords are crunchy, with lots of attitude and bite while single note passages are well defined and precise. This instrument projects beautifully, making it the clear winner in any campfire jam volume war. But more importantly, it is well balanced and smooth in it's sound, allowing it to shine in both modern and traditional Gypsy jazz contexts. Yet another masterpiece from Bob!

This is the CASH price...add 3% (4% for International orders) if you'd like to pay with a credit card.
