Editor's Notes & Price Research
Hollowbody guitars are typically lighter and more resonant than their solid body counter parts. This gives a somewhat mellower tone to the guitar making it well suited to Jazz, Blues or Rock. The HB30 features a double cutaway and includes a solid maple block in the center, increasing sustain and reducing susceptibility to feedback in high volume situations. ~ persian_mafia
World Music Supply has the Washburn HB30 Hollow Body Electric Guitar with Case was $599.99 now $299.99 shipped after coupon. Use coupon code hb30 (undercase intentional) at checkout.
This guitar is very versatile for blues, roots rock, jazz, alternative, etc. I played it at a local shop and loved it. They had it for $400, sans case. But this at $299 shipped with case is a slick deal. I have had great luck too with WMS. No tax for me when I buy there and great service.
It has Washburn open coil pups (the 621 in the neck and 623 in the bridge position) and I really like how they work being paired with maple. They can sparkle and crunch.
It has grover tuners too, which is always a plus.
Anyway, I always gravitate to that semi-hollow brilliant tone like Chuck Berry, Beetles. But you could easily rock out on this like the Foo Fighters. It would make a smooth jazz machine too.
They still have black and red available at the time of this posting.
