Just looking at this semi-hollow body guitar in its gorgeous plum finish recalls the magic of the swing era that gave birth to the iconic guitar design that inspired the HB-35Plus. Although this guitar embraces that heritage with two cutaways and F-holes, its musical ambitions extend far beyond jazz, fusion or rockabilly. The repertoire of this semi-hollow body classic includes all styles this side of heavy metal, thanks in large part to the maple body, arched top and a solid mahogany sustain block that guarantees stability and reduces susceptibility to feedback. The two Roswell LAF Alnico-5 Vintage Style humbuckers ensure that its sound is equally impressive, giving you a warm, creamy tone with plenty of oomph. If you’re wondering whether the HB-35Plus suits your style, the long list of artists like Chuck Berry, Brian Setzer and Eric Clapton, Dave Grohl and Bono associated with this style of guitar demonstrate the wide range of genres it excels in.
