Dave...buddy...have a look...
That does it, I'm getting this one out for practice tonight...
I have archtop pickups in my old Hollowbody. They work well for me. I think they suit the guitar well.
You know I’ve been saving one for when you’re ready.
Oh for cryin' out loud... you big meanie!!!
I know... you keep reminding me... you're a big meanie too!
Lol, a HB is the biggest hole in my small collection I'd say. That and a decent acoustic.
You might have more fun coming over to try my acoustics than going to the local store. You could get a good idea what suited you. And sample some eastern beverages.
Man, I'm SCARED of your acoustics... I mean in a really nice/positive way. They are some of the finest examples available to man!
Me too, I don’t have that kind of cheese.
I'll play too.
Just out of curiosity, were lampshades being used in 2004? I'm not sure when they were first introduced. It also looks like it has ebony tuning pegs. Would that have been stock or an upgrade?

That looks Bangin’!
Yeah, the knobs and buttons were added later, which is a good thing IMO. The buttons will shave a tiny amount of weight from the headstock which are prone to neck dive.
Awesome, thanks for confirming my suspicions. I would have changed the speed knobs out for lampshades anyway so that saves me some money. I'm not too picky about the buttons, but cool to know that it serves a purpose other than just aesthetics. I do think I'll put some new pickup rings on it. I much prefer like lighter color of newer ivory rings over the older, more yellow color.
So when are you getting it sprayed “Pelham Blue”?
Ha! As much as I love Foo Fighters, I like to think I have better taste in guitars than Dave Grohl
Sweet looking guitar.
How much of a different sound is the Hollowbody ll Vs a Semi Hollowbody? Any idea?
After a Cu24 and a 513, I always thought the next one would be a HB... Luckily for me I have other things to attend to first...
And now there is an SE Hollowbody II...
GAS strikes again...
I thought ebony tuner buttons were stock on Hollowbody Spruce models. No? I have them on mine, but I did buy it used. I swapped the TRC out for an ebony one myself to match them, although it looks just like the black plastic from a distance!
Haha, indeed you do! I couldn’t resist the comment.
Mine is a HBi and my McCarty is semi hollow. Both compared to solid bodies have a mid range push but the semi hollow has a higher midrange push than the hollow body.
Acoustically stunning an open E chord the hollow body has a highest peak frequency of 328hz and the semi hollow body is 656hz.
I don't have the same pickups in both so I can't accurately compare the two.
