OK, here's my current hollowbody stable:

1974 Gibson Les Paul Signature
1992 Gibson EB-650
1999 Epi Rivoli with a 74 Gibson humbucker pup
2002 (or 2003) Hofner Club bass
2006 Gibson Les Paul Standard - not hollow but has chambers

I think that's it! I'll post a picture soon.

Do you play your Broadkaster much?

The least of all of them - although it sounds great with those Blue Steels ( I tried TI flats and put the Blue Steels back on).
I play the Guild and the Series 1 the most.

That's interesting. I tried TI flats on my when I first got it and they didn't sound good to me either. I ended up with LaBella black tape wounds on it. The orange one has been at the local shop for 4 months. If it's still there another 4 months from now, I'll go in and make them a stupidly low offer. Sometimes, they go for it!

Spectorcore 4 fretted.
Spectorcore 4 fretless.
A buncha JJ Rumblefishes, and a Brad Houser 5.

The Spectorcores are really nice, don't cost much, and sound HUGE. I normally detest peizo pickups, but they work pretty well with this bass. The EMG HZ is nicely placed where it catches all the woody tone from the chambered section ('s).

Not sure why, but the Spectorcore is also my most "POG-friendly" bass. The two together are truly awesome. We're talking "brown note" candidate here.

IMO the Spectorcore is a better sounding, and more versatile semi than the Skyline hollow I had. They also play just as well. At their price point, I doubt they can be beat.

Yeah, I've been tempted a few times on eBay. Is $550 a good price for a new condition one?

Dunno, but I got my fretless in exc condition for under $400. No case or bag, tho.

Got the fretted one in VG condition for $299 BIN. No case or bag.

The Core is the only modern bass I've been attracted to over the years. Most others don't do much for me, but this bass has a nice mix of HB and modern looks to make it unique. Something to think about!

Yep, I think one would be an interesting addition. I'm not a Warwick or modern fan, but a hollow one sure is tempting!

Cool Templar! Two green ones! I've only seen them in the teal color but I do have a line on a black fretted one. First I've seen in black. Wow, 7.5 lbs. is nice. Just a little more than my Hofner!

This is my only semi-hollow right now. I've had a bunch of recent types (Godin A4, Fender HMT, Epi JC Sig, DiPinto Belvedere Std, Dean Rhapsody HB, Rumblefish JJ/XL/PJs) but am a wuss for comfort. The semi-hollow sound is what I like, but I haven't found the one that will let me play it as much as I'd like (so far only skinny necked, standard bodied G&Ls work for me for that). I'm planning on getting a Waterstone ME-1 or ME-2 soon to try out (they claim a skinny neck and it's got an upper horn). I haven't tried a short/med scale bass at all yet but may have to go down that route and see how they work for me. A DeArmond Starfire w/Dark Stars would be a lot of fun to try . . . (and I really should check out an ASAT semihollow with strap extender to combine my love for semihollows with my love for G&Ls)
