Description

If you're looking for a Jazz box ideal for gigging, the Holst 16" Archtop is definitely worth considering. With a smaller-than-average Maple body, this Holst has all the warmth and round tonality of a full-size Jazz box, but the more compact and comfortable feel of a semi-hollow body. Amped up with an ES-175 Humbucker pickup perfect for fingerstyle, this guitar really lets those 6 and 13 chords ring in all their complexity--and the wider neck with 1 13/16" nut makes fingering complicated shapes that much easier.The voice is warm and expressive, with lots of drive. Trebles silky smooth; basses clean and articulate. If you're looking for the big, round sound for fingerstyle Jazz in a more manageable package, try this Holst 16" Archtop on for size. This guitar also comes with an extra bridge and saddle, and a TKL hardshell case.

The fit and finish is top-notch here, and there's some great energy coming out of the ES-175 pickup. Glossy setup, wider fingerstyle neck, Archtop warmth and drive--this guitar's ready for the stage.
