There’s nothing quite like a hollowbody electric guitar. It’s no wonder that these guitars have had a fanatical following since the early days of jazz and subsequently rock & roll. At Sweetwater, we’re serious about hollowbody guitars, and it shows in the extensive collection we offer. We carry many superb sounding hollowbody guitars in every price range.

With period-correct features that pay homage to their vintage predecessors, modern hollowbody guitars make you feel like you’re stepping onto a stage from the 1950s. So rock out with some old school rockabilly and blues, but remember, you’re by no means limited to those genres. These guitars can get gritty and full of angst, too. That versatility is one of the best things about these guitars. They’ve stood the test of time precisely because of the intensity they bring to a wide range of musical styles.

There has been a bit of a renaissance in hollowbody designs over the last decade or so. Some very cool brands are updating classic shapes with a combination of vintage-style features and modern electronics — with new takes on classic styling. For instance, there has been a surge in the popularity of ES335 copies updated with fierce looking sharp double cuts and sweet features like Bigsby tremolos and classic PAF-style pickups. That’s a recipe for simmering jazz riffs, as well as 1960s garage and surf sounds.

If you really want to bring the grit, take a look at our selection of hollowbody guitars equipped with big P90 pickups. We have a host of awesome configurations, from double pickups to single pickups in the neck position. These pickups promise incredible breakup all on their own, but when paired with an archtop hollowbody, they reach the next level of guttural growl.

You’ve got so many excellent choices before you. Single cut or double? Humbuckers, P90s or Filtertron style pickups? A big, deep-sided guitar that feels more like an acoustic, or a super modern, compact jazz master with extras like piezo pickups. For the traditionalist, perhaps even a hollow version of a classic solid body design would do the trick.

There are so many variations and options that it can feel pretty daunting trying to take it all in. That’s where we come in. Give your Sweetwater Sales Engineer a call today and talk about body styles, brands and features. Let us know what you’re looking for and we can help you zero in on a subset of great guitars that lend themselves to your tastes. We will answer all of your question and give you the information you need to pick the right hollowbody guitar for you. Learn More
