chambered s bodies?????

I know there are several companies making bodies similar to the s style. I was wondering if you know of any that make a chambered or hollow s style body?? Thanks.

Warmoth makes some of the best hollow bodies available.

What exactly would be the point of a chambered s? The guitar is light as a feather already, what would be the point of taking more weight off it?

It is not an issue with weight. It is an issue of sound. The sound of a chambered guitar is different than that of a solid body guitar.
