What We Think

The Custom Hollow is hand-crafted by Ryan Gadow in Durham, NC USA. This mint condition, used hollow-burst represents the flagship model that put Ryan on the map. The unique tear-drop sound port not only looks great but sounds the way some of the best semi-hollows in the world sound! The top curvature is a nice touch you commonly see on much more expensive guitars and the flame is extensive and gorgeous! and that mahogany back shimmers like you wouldn't believe! Definitely a great alternative choice to all the single-cut style guitars out there.

And let's talk tone! coil tap humbuckers for single coil and humbucking tone and enough bite and growl when driven to impress the major brand traditionalists out there. Super smooth fretwork and extrmemly easy-to-adjust truss rod from the bottom of the neck.

Looking for something hand-crafted and beautiful, but different? Here it is! The Custom Hollow from Gadow and a deal you won't find anywhere else.

Manufacturer's Description from Gadow

The Custom Hollow is an inspiring alternative to today?s solid-body electric guitars. Semi-hollow mahogany body and a set of Gadow Handwound Pickups impart an incredibly flexible tonal range that inspires players of all levels. Most recognizable, and quickly becoming the Gadow signature style, the Custom Hollow is easily recognized by the teardrop sound hole in the upper left corner. Add the stunning highly figured carved-maple top and bolt-on maple neck, and it?s easy to understand why this is our best seller. Read what Guitar Player Mag has to say about the Custom Hollow!
