    Played a cutom Set Neck and a Hollow Classic yesterday. As much as I wanted to love the Set Neck, I ended up playing the Hollow a lot more. Can you Gadow owners push me over the edge? I've never played any body shape other than a "strat" style, so it looks a little unusual to me at times, but then I think it looks beautiful. Does that make sense? Anyway, pictures of Hollow Customs (especially in action) would be nice. How does the guitar hang on you? Is it well balanced? I know this is a little strange, but I'm just not 100% sure on this one.
    Thanks,
    Bill

    I own two custom hollows and love them. These are wonderful guitars and in my opinion they have a very comfortable shape.

    Here is a a pic of one of them:
