Over the years Bob Holo has established himself as one the premiere contemporary makers of the Franco-Italian guitar designs of Selmer, Maccaferri, Busato, and Favino. 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, just to name a few. Bob has essentially been a "luthier for the stars" over the past decade...but now you can take home one of these gems yourself!
