Hollow Man

Hollow Man

The Hollow Man is the perfect blend of modern and traditional  -bringing un-paralleled comfort and playability together with a wide varietey of tones.

The Dimarzio Air Classics in the bridge and neck position are chosen for their clarity and low string pull, which provides maximum sustain. The neck pick-up is creamy and warm - ideal for blues and modern jazz, with rich open bass sounds and piano-like overtones. The bridge pick-up has extra clarity and dynamic through the mid range, yet is controlled enough to play with moderate over-drive at high volumes...the player who is looking to travel from indie rock all the way to modern jazz will love this guitar.

The Hollow Man is a little unusual - this is a genuine hollow body, only a sustain block under the bridge pick-up and tail piece, and one under the neck pick-up and neck joint, leaving it with a single resonant cavity. But, it is contoured as well, fitting comfortably into your body while being super light!

The neck joint also sports a contoured heel. This has the same strength and stability of a traditional bolt-on design, but the contouring of the heel allows easy access to the upper frets.

The lead player will love the extra sustain whether playing clean or overdriven on this guitar, every player will also appreciate the surprising variety and contrast that can be acheived out of this instrument just using the 3-way pick-up toggle and the push-pull coil tapping for either pick-up. Like all Lauda guitars, the wire-ups are kept elegantly simple but carefully thought out to provide the ability to switch tones mid-performance.
