Like the archtop guitar, the mandolin owns a rich and colorful heritage and remains an important part of modern music.

As I have always done with my instruments, I focus on intelligent control of the many design and construction variables available to me. Whether X-braced or parallel braced, carved in a modern or traditional style, a Holst mandolin is always made with the customer's unique needs in mind.

I view every mandolin order as an opportunity for both personal expression as well as customer design input. Each order is unique and special and reflects both the customer and myself. Please visit the Gallery to see what I've done for others.
