Christopher Holcomb comes out of the fertile guitar-building territory of Northern California, having learned from greats like Richard Hoover, Rick Turner, Scott Walker, and Jeff Traugott. Unsurprisingly, his inspired takes on classic guitars have fast won our hearts, and this L-00 has become a quick shop favorite. Combining a set of koa with European spruce, he's created a delightful 14-fret 00 that balances crisp clarity with warmth, making for a guitar that would be especially well-suited to recording and vocal accompaniment (and most anything else you throw at it). With cohesive koa appointments, clean lines, a pyramid bridge, slotted headstock, antiqued gold tuners, and his own metal headstock logo, Chris completes this vintage package with his own recognizable flair. Ships out in a black Calton case.
