The Hollow-body Standard adds a different dimension to the Giffin Standard. Because of the unique internal structure which allows the bridge to mount on a solid block which is part of the body wood, these guitars have the open airy sound of a pure hollow-body while still retaining the power and sustain of a solid-body.
"Here is a new hollow-body Standard with a one-piece curly Bubinga top. I used wood from the same piece of Bubinga to make the fingerboard, head veneer and pickup rings, so the whole of the front of the guitar is Bubinga. The body is Honduras Mahogany, and the neck is also Honduras Mahogany with a hard Maple laminate. All the binding is cream celluloid.
The guitar has Gotoh "Butterbean" tuners and a Schroeder wraparound bridge. I've used a set of TV Jones "Ray Butts" FilterTron pickups which I have to say do sound amazing on this guitar. They are very clear and sparkly - (very much like an old Gretsch), not loud but highly articulate. I really like them!
I finished the guitar with oil and wax which is natural on the front and dark Walnut stain on the back." - Roger Giffin
