The Sadowsky Semi Hollow

The Sadowsky Semi Hollow was conceived to be an instrument that could produce a tradition jazz tone, yet have the ability to function at much higher volume levels without feedback. Perfect for high volume playing with pedals and effects, as well as performing in large band situations. The chambered spruce center block provides maximum feedback rejection with minimum weight yet maintains a traditional jazz tone from the neck pickup. The addition of a bridge pickup, tune-o-matic style bridge and tailpiece provide maximum versatility for other styles of playing.
