Boutique ODs should not be considered valuable in a trade unless youíre a pedal collector. EHX and Joyo make inexpensive overdrives that cost much less than cork-sniffer pedals.

The hollow areas of a semi hollow are mostly cosmetic. They make the guitar a little louder than a solid body when unplugged, but thatís it.
