    Where have all the Hollowbody guitars gone?

    I've been looking for a Hollowbody for weeks now with no luck. They are few and far between and no decent deals on anything used. Has anyone else noticed this?

    I look at 'em all the time on eBay and have noticed a shortage of bargains lately, maybe we could get Pete to put a couple of dents in a few for us?

    I've been dreaming of a way to come up with the four grand for this prototype:

    I managed to snag one, and you're probably not too far away. I'd be up for a guitar party sometime so you can check it out.

    There are some out there. JD at Guitar Maverick seems to have a knack for finding them.

    I've had one on the local craigslist for weeks with no serious offers. EBay/PayPal fees make selling one there almost impossible. To end up with a decent price, you have to jack your asking price up so high no one is interested.

    Tonnes in the UK at the moment. 'Regular' models, 10-tops, Artist Packs galore. Many colours. Double and singlecuts. No shortage!

    Have you checked out Reverb? Much lower fees. Cool community.

    Peach Guitars, World Guitars, and to a lesser extent Wildwire and Guitarguitar all have them in stock at the moment. Have seen others too, not uncommon for a smaller dealer to have maybe just one alongside their solid bodies. Project Music (iirc) had an SC HBII last I checked. Guitar Village had a slightly older HBII but at a reduced price. No shortage either way!

    Careful.
    I think Rob felt compelled to get one after he tried mine in a parking lot we met up in.
