Do you play a hollow body guitar?

Recommended Posts

...how many of you actually play a hollow body guitar?

I have en Elitist Casino that I absolutely LOVE (see avatar). As a side note, our lead player in our mid '60's cover band used an ES175. Awesome guitar.

I had an Epi 175 for a while. That was my last foray into hollows, they just don't do it for me.

I had a Gretsch G-6120 Nashville, but I got rid of it (wasn't playing it) for the Bigsby and poor upper fret access. I own an Ibanez Artcore AFJ91 which I like for what it is. My preference is for semi-hollows which own more of and play more often.

 

I like jazz guitar music played on a hollow body. As much as I love to listen to jazz, the instruments of choice for listening to jazz are the horns, and I don't really have a good jazz vocabulary on guitar. Plus, jazz can be played on any guitar.

 

Love that ES-175, Caliman. Hope to own one some day... maybe when I can do it justice.

Of course. All of my acoustics have hollow bodies. :rolleyes:

 

In that case I guess I have 4 if you count my 3 acoustics.

I had an Ibanez AF75. I sold it and regretted it ever since. I've got an Aria TA60 which is a great guitar. Better than Epiphone, but I've not played a Gibson 335.

If I could afford one, I'd have a Switchmaster

No, but I've had the pleasure of playing an old (mid-late 60's) 330 and it was superb. [thumbup]

 

(...and I think Uncle Ted's old black Byrdland is one of the coolest looking guitars on the planet)

I have two hollow bodies. My ES345 1959 Reissue and a "proper" hollow body - a 1974 Yamaha AE12 jazz box.

I play a Hofner hollowbody archtop. Not for gigs. Just for myself at home.

 

I have a semi-hollow ES-339 that I do gig sometimes.

 

 

 

I am very tempted by a seventyseven semi-hollow, but have been unable to try one out so far.
