Guitar Lust: Jon Kammerer Hollow Body Electric

Folks, this is one awesome guitar.

The body is walnut, carved in Jon Kammerer’s patented parabolic hollow body style.  It is *really* loud unplugged, even though there are no soundholes.  And all that air inside, combined with the shape and the walnut tone, gives it an excellent timbre for jazz and blues: it just sounds round, full, rich with harmonic overtones…like rich soil would sound like if it were guitar tone.

Seymour Duncan pickups, with a JB in the bridge and a Jazz in the neck.

21/24 countered-edge ebony fingerboard with an absolutely gorgeous genuine abalone inlay.

The bridge is a Schaller Tune-o-Matic w/ fine tuners.  It works really well.

Being a hollow-body, the guitar is really light.  But it isn’t neck-heavy at all…the ergonomics on the guitar work really well, with all the frets within easy reach.

Jon didn’t make many of these…it’s always possible he’ll re-start the line someday, after the industry recovers from the current recession…but for now, these are extremely rare.

Without further ado, the pictures (clickable thumbnails):

    Jon is still making guitars, just give him a call. My custom project will be done in a month.
