Introducing C.F. Holcomb Guitars

We are delighted to welcome C.F. Holcomb onto our roster of luthiers.

Over the past ten years Christopher Holcomb, aka C.F Holcomb Guitars, has been taught by some of the most iconic luthiers in California, including Scott Walker, Rick Turner, Jeff Traugott and Richard Hoover (Santa Cruz Guitar Company). Chris combines techniques that he has learnt with some that he has developed alone, the outcome of which is a line of instruments which can be tailored to any musician's sound, feel and aesthetic.

We currently have two Kodiak models in build with Christopher for TNAG, one in all Koa and the other in all Maple. The Kodiak is unique to the resonator world in the sense that it is built like an acoustic guitar.  The top and back have a radius and the sides are tapered just like an acoustic guitar. The radiused top is the key to solving most of the issues with traditional resonators, which are really built more like a speaker cabinet rather than a guitar. With the two degree neck angle the action can be much lower and more consistent. The necks are built from the heel up, to guarantee that the intonation is right every time. The radius also allows Chris to take the top and back much thinner, which enables the instrument's tone to be influenced by the wood selection.

The kodiak has a 25.5" scale length and comes with a custom made Righteous sound single coil pickup, Rubner Tuners, and all brass hardware.
