Hollow and Semi-Hollow Owners?

Is there a group for owners/lovers of Semi-hollows and Full Hollow bodied electric guitars? If there is I'll delete this, if there ain't I'll start one. So those who love these guitars, come and post.


http://groups.ultimate-guitar.com/hollowguitarlovers/

Here's the link to the group. If you play and/or love semi hollows and full hollows, join up.

I don't own a semi acoustic, but I borrowed one from a friend, so I guess I can post anyway.
It's a Yamaha SA503TVL by the way.

Count me in, unless there already is one. Then I'll join that one. Semi's/Hollows are the sh-t man.

I wanted this semi-for a hot second but I'm pretty much in the Gretsch or Es335 Hollow body stlye of guitar.

It does play nice though.

It really depends. If it has P-90's it will feed back a lot. Humbuckers, less so. Full Hollows have a tendency to wail when played with high gain, but if you're buying a full hollow, you aren't likely to play high gain stuff most of the time.

I could be mistaken, but I think the size of the guitar also has to do with feed back issues.

If I'm not mistaken the Gibson "Lucille's" have very little to no feedback but that's because they don't have F-holes.

I own an '83 Ibanez AM-50 and a modified '04 AM-77 and I love them both. The AM-50 I will never part with. Never had any problems with feedback on either. Pics in my profile.

Hey guys.

I've been looking to get a semi-hollow lately. I was originally looking for a Blueshawk... until I found out that it'd set me back about a thousand dollars. So now I've turned my eye to 335 style guitars, anyone have any reccomendations?

I've had my eye on Hagstom Vikings for a while, but it turns out that I'd need to get one used or blem'd in order for it to be in my budget (And even then it's stretching it a bit).

Budget tops out around $400 Canadian, and I mostly play blues but actively practice shred techniques. I'm still trying to get my style down do a fair bit of my playing just chilling out on the couch, so feel is just as - if not more - important than plugged in sound.

EDIT: Forgot to say that it'll be pretty hard to play most of the lesser known brands, as where I live isn't especially guitarist-friendly.

I don't know how good you can get one for 400 canuck dollars, but the DOT studio is around that range. I haven't played a Viking, so I can't say anything about that.

I would say look into a DOT studio, a used Sheraton II (Both Epiphone, with humbuckers), a used Casino (P-90's), and an Ibanez AS73 and maybe an AS93.

If you can afford the difference, go for the AS93 over the 73. In addition to the cosmetic touches, the deluxe models have a nicer feeling neck.

Totally agreed. That's why I use my Ibanez primarily for slide guitar The only reason why I got it so cheap, though, is because it was used.

To the guy who's looking for an archtop, I'd say the Dot Studio.

I've got one myself, and I actually rather love it. Very well built for a Chinese-made guitar, even if the the electronics are a little shoddy. It should definitely suit you well.

A semi hollow guitar has a solid block in it, usually right under the pickups. Next time you see a semi hollow guitar, look inside the F hole and you'll see a solid block of wood there.

Yep. Semi-hollows sustain better, because there's more to the guitar to vibrate. They also resist hollowbody feedback, due to the lesser acoustic resonance.

True story. That's why Ted Nugent could get away with moderately high gain while using a ES-175.

Am I right in saying that the size of the guitar has to do with the amount of feedback it's prone to as well?

Like for instance, take a Schecter CSH-1. It's the shape and size of a C-1, and it hardly feeds back at all. But then you have a Casino that will feed back like a motherf*cker.
