I have a question about these lovely ladies: how common is body chambering and which models/years have it? Mine has a hollow sounding area just behind the bridge.

These guitars are not "chambered" per se like some of the 80's Gibson LP's....The tops of these guitars are basically bent plywood, not carved-leaving a void under the top that makes that hollow sound. I believe (and please correct me if I am wrong) that ALL of the bolt neck clones were made this way (and that includes Ibanez)....

I'm guessing this one to be a 2245 too. The truss rod cover also says custom. Clear pickguard. It's being re-wired now since all it did was buzz and fart when I got it.Image
