doubt it, not a hollowbody for that kind of music..

What do you mean!? I think it would suite it quite well! reverend horton heat used semi-hollows for those types.

Semi-hollow have a block behind the pickups, those Wildkats don't (I believe). You try to play that kind of music on that guitar, your going to feedback like crazy. Try something semi-hollow or better yet, solid with single coils, maybe a fender??

It says there that the Wildkat is semi-hollow...

Go for it

WTF you guys, hollowbodies are the only guitars rockabilly or psychobilly players will use. I have yet to see a rockabilly player using a solid body, and that guitar would be great for what you want. Lots of punk guitarists use hollowbodies also

I've heard great things about the wildkat, if the person lives near you call them and arrange to play before you buy. That way you can make sure it'll suit your play style.

well does it being over 2-3 years old matter at all? like fret wise? because other than that, i realllllllllllly like the look and feel of it
