Tom Homes (THC), Cadillac Hollow Body Prototype, 1979
About the Maker:
Tom Holmes built custom hand-made guitars for Bo Diddley, Lenny Breau, Billy Gibbons, Albert King and many others. Even if he started first building guitars, he is today a legend for PAF-style hum-bucking pickups, which he builds in his shop in Joelton, TN. It is agreed that Tom's TH450 PAF repro's are the most authentic anywhere and that they are absolutely the closest thing available to those old 59 Les Paul pickups.
About the guitar:
Tom Holmes built this hand-made guitar. This was the original prototype of the Bo Diddley Cadillac. This version features a deeper body compared to the Cadillac guitars built later by Tom Holmes (of which several are featured in our collection). The reason is that this a hollow body contruction.
A great looking and sounding guitar!
