Thread Name: Help: Advice on Hollow Body Guitars
Subject: RE: Help: Advice on Hollow Body Guitars
I have owned a Gibson ES 395 from the fifties, a 1962 ES 335 with PAF pickups, an ES 330, an old Guild Hollowbody ( my first electric) and numerous other 335's and the like. Right now, Paul Reed Smith is making the most incredible hollow and semi -hollow bodies I have played .They will cost you 2 or 3 thousand dollars minimum, but they are expertly crafted, totally in tune, easy to play, and they sing when plugged in. I am saving my momey for a McCarty hollow body with two humbucking pickups and a piezo bridges. I am comfortable saying that PRS are the best for the moneyright now.
