    matt's hollow body guitars do gain just fine. I love mine with a roughly dumble-esque amp. I'd imagine these semi-hollow convertible guitars can take tons of gain with no problem.

    Thanks guys!! I'm really thinking on one of these. I would go spruce top most likely.

    As soon as I get mine I'll be running it through a Mesa Boogie and get a feel for how much gain in can handle, and I have plans to share the results with everyone (audio and video hopefully). When I first spoke with Matt he said it should handle a fair amount of gain because of the block under the bridge that Kingsley mentioned.

    I've been playing mine through a Dr Z Monza recently and it sounds pretty damn good to my ears.

    Hey KD! I got a pic or two of you jamming with Steve Miller. What an evening that was and so happy for Ken. Let me know if you want a copy.

    Can't wait to see your Artinger double convertible!

    I'm currently spec'ing my semi hollow out with Matt and having a blast. I can't wait!!

    Matt seems about as cool as it gets. I hope that I'm not bugging him but every time I look through the damn galleries, I see something sweeter than the last!!!
