Looking toward the holidays, my rockabilly GAS is urging me to consider adding a hollowbody electric to the collection, and I’m looking for advice. As this has to remain a relatively low-cost hobby for me, my top end is around $400. I’m almost certainly planning to buy used. In that price range, it seems that Epiphone and Ibanez have a lot to offer, and with a bit of judicious looking, it’s possible to find some of the lower-end Gretsch models (particularly, as I say, used). There’s obviously a lot of other brands out there, but the familiar names seem like a good starting point. I’ve done some preliminary shopping, and played a variety of guitars from each of those companies. Given the varying levels of care they receive at the stores, or from previous owners, I didn’t find much consistency: played some from each brand that I loved, and some I never wanted to touch again. So within those parameters, what’s your experience been? Streamliner versus Dot versus AF55 versus…? Are there any other brands/models that you find consistently strong enough to add them to the mix? TIA.
