My Friend Wants a Gibby Hollow Body: Need Help!

So basically my friend wants a Gibson hollowbody...He has a Les Paul Classic right now, and he just wants to add a hollowbody.

That said, what should we be looking for in this case? Is new Gibson stuff still overpriced or inconsistant? Sorry if that offends some, but that's what I've heard not just from players but luthiers as well.

Any other good brands withing the $2grand range?

What should we look for?

Thanks in advance for all of your help!!

I did a search but did not find a "beginner's" thread on this.

Check out the new 339's theres tons of posts about them here recently and they look great for $1700. Maybe some owners will chime in;)

339 is a semi-hollow. Great guitar, but if he's looking for that hollow sound, he may be better off with a true hollow. The suggestions above are full hollow.

They're discontinued and can be hard to find, but I love the ES-446. It won't sound like a full-fledged jazz box, but still has more resonance than a 335. They're thinner, like a 335, but with a Les Paul shape. Full hollow, with a carved spruce top. Very nice.

Does he want a genuine hollowbody, or a semi-hollow. I'm going to assume the latter and say: just get a 335.
