2018 Holo Traditional

2018 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 features Selmer like dimension:15 3/4" body with a 3 15/16" body depth and a 670mm scale. The top is Romanian spruce, the back and sides are Indian rosewood, and the neck is walnut. Hardware includes a DR tailpiece and set of Schaller Classic Deluxe tuners. The action is set at a very low 2.8mm which, along with Bob's fastidious fret work, allows for easy, buzz free playability across the entire guitar.

As the name would suggest, this model produces the sizzling highs and rich mids that are characteristic of a traditional Selmer guitar. Possessing both great power and subtly, this instrument produces a complex and beautiful tone that, paired with it's thunderous projection, results in a stunning musical experience for the player. If you're looking to recreate some of the magic of Django's original recordings, there's no doubt that this exceptional instrument can handle the task with ease.

This example has some mild sings of use, including moderate fretwear, small dings, scuffs, and scratches on the body, and an endpin jack (the pickup itself has been removed.) The photos above are from when the guitar was new, please contact me for current photos.
