I don't have all that much experience with hollow bodies. A good friend had an Epiphone Granada (like an es-120) that was fun but really wouldn't intonate or hold tune very well. I had a Hamer Echotone for a while (335 clone), but sold it because I found the body too large (I'm a pretty short dude). That's about it. I keep window shopping for old hollow bodies though. I'm kind of obsessed with having one of these strange old guitars at some point. I bet the bulk of these that have survived don't play very well, as many of them were budget instruments to begin with. Dunno, I just -- WANT ONE. If you'd care to -- Discuss.
