All this hollow body talk has caused some FOMO for me, so I recently picked up a cheap epiphone dot with a badly repaired headstock. I’ve since put a Bigsby on it and have some Duesenberg pickups ordered to replace the “wax buckers” as they are fondly referred to. As this seems like the perfect guitar to do a headstock transplant on to, Lostinverness will be atempting to splice on a Gibson shaped headstock at some stage. Anyway progress pics attached.

From the back at least, that Jazzenbacker looks like a giant guitar snake that has swallowed and is slowly digesting a Les Paul.
The older I get, the more disappointed in myself I become.

That is proper nice. Play it slowly with 3 different reverbs on at once, and 2 different echos.

Loving playing the HB, it’s a way better guitar than the money would suggest, nice and loud acoustically too…
