    Me too! And I have heard other demos that had the same effect. To me...the SE sounds more "acoustic", and more "natural".

    I bought one...in that great blue color. It's a winner! Put new Elixer strings on it, set the action lower, and truss rod tighter for a more level neck and it rings out incredibly well.

    This was a major score for my collection, which has some high end Gibson stuff, including a 2018 Custom Shop 59 reissue with monster flame in HCS by Tom Murphy. This SE Hollowbody II Piezo is in that class. I will never part with it.

    Sorry to ask and the answer might be obvious, but can I get some classic blues tones out of this guitar that evoke the sounds of Freddie King, B.B. King, Buddy Guy?

    Not that I sound anything like the greats you are referencing, I saw this as I was about to return the SE HB Piezo I had for some demos. So I did a quick sample of my bluesy noodling for you... Hope this helps

    (keep in mind this is just the iPhone mic)

    Hahaha that was all I needed to hear. The EXACT tone I was hoping to get out of this beauty. Thank you Bryan! I am sold.

    Edit: Also -- great playing, as usual! Big fan of your demos!

    You’re too modest Bryan!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Bryan is a GEM ! He's cost me some serious cash this spring...SE Paul's & SE Hollowbody Standard.
    I love his style, smooth and tasty.

    Wow. Thanks.

    That answers a lot of my questions about this guitar, too.

    Can you tell us what amp and pedals you're playing through, here?

    Looks exactly like mine. My iPhone camera could not take pictures this good to post...it just didn't do the instrument justice. It is such a fun guitar to play!!!
