I don't know why I'm so drawn to it, but I've been looking for a hollowbody for a while (I play more jazz gigs than rock gigs these days). This seems like a guitar that would have a jazzier tone but still feel somewhat familiar.

Anyway, has anybody played one of these? If so, any comments?


PS--Here's the link--I want the black one!
If it's anything like their other guitars, it should play like a dream. I'm in love with the Godin Multiac.
