Brand New C.F. Holcomb Kodiak, “The Tree” Mahogany
SOLDAdd to Compare
Our first resonator from C.F. Holcomb takes center stage (and our hearts) from the very first lick to the final ringing chord. There’s so much going on with this cut-above-the-reso, where to begin? How about Christopher’s novel use of “The Tree” Mahogany for a resonator body? We’ve seen Koa sets not a quarter as gorgeous, and somewhere Holcomb uncovered a slice of Cocobolo big enough for a one-piece neck—a standing ovation for his taste in woods.
Add to that a spider cone bridge with bone saddles, Lollar P90 (oh, yes indeed), Gotoh tuners, and a gorgeous headstock plate bearing Holcomb’s John Hancock. But let’s talk tone. This Holcomb Kodiak boasts a voice that is, truly, greater than the sum of its parts (and what fine parts they are): rich and colorful reso tone with the spider bridge, a fiery brand of warmth to light up the bass, and whip-crack trebles that soar when you give the Lollar some juice. National, eat your heart out. Please note, this Holcomb comes with a weeks’ supply of paper towels to catch any accidental tears of joy (also works for excess saliva).
