I have been listening to jazz guitar music lately (Pandora on a Wes Montgomery channel) and I always assume that I'm hearing hollowbody jazz guitars. But now I'm questioning that. Does a hollowbody have a noticeably distinctive sound that cannot be imitated with something other than a hollowbody? I can hear, for the most part, that it's some sort of neck pickup, maybe even a humbucker. But some people have bright tones and use a pick, that I'm wondering if one can cop a hollowbody tone with something other than one. Awe hell, I'll get to the point, do I need a hollowbody jazz box?
