Instruments previously built in Neodesha, KS during the late 1960s. Distributed by Holman-Woodell, Inc. of Neodesha, KS.
The Holman-Woodell company built guitars during the late 1960s in Neodesha, Kansas (around 60 miles due south from Topeka). While they were producing guitars for Wurlitzer, they also built their own Holman brand as well as instruments trademarked Alray and 21st Century. The Holman- Woodell company is also famous for building the La Baye 2 x 4 in. guitars for Wisconsin-based inventor Dan Helland. The Holman-Woodell company also released a number of faux 2 x 4s built from leftover parts with the "Holman" logo after the La Baye company went under.
