The Hollowbody/Semi-hollowbody Love Thread

Who loves the hollowbodies on UG?

The group made for this is pretty weak, so I'm starting a thread, just like the RG owners, etc..

If you have one, plan to buy one, look at them, or like them at all in any way, post here.

This'll be a place for questions, answers, trials, and tribulations encountered with hollowbodies and/or semi-hollowbodies.



Can't control feedback? Need recommendations for certain guitars?

Post here!


EDIT:

"Weak" as in there aren't a ton of members, and I'm trying to rally us all together.

Did you? The search didn't bring it up, that's why I posted this.


EDIT:

I own an full hollowbody Ibanez Artcore AF75 in Transparent Red Sunburst. It's awesome, and I play it all the time.

The Casino is a full hollow with P-90's so it feeds back like a son of a bitch. The Sheraton II is the cream of the crop as far as Epi's go.

I think the dot is good in that it resists feedback more, but it's also fairly cheap.

Josh Homme has one, and uses it in Queens of the Stone Age, like in Lullabies to Paralyze.

The only thing that makes me not like the Casino is that Epiphone pitches it as "the Beatles' guitar", and I'm not a fan of the Beatles.

I have seen some damn beautiful Casinos, though, like in a creamy light blue.


EDIT:

Well, that thread is more of a group promotion thread, this is more of a thread-thread, if that makes sense, as it's not directly tied to any groups.

^True. I'm more of an Ebony finish man, myself.

The Dot is a very good guitar, especially after a pup swap. It won't sustain as much as a Sheraton, because the sustain block is lighter, but it is still a very good guitar. As far as feedback, it won't do as much as many people think, because of the fact that it is a semi-hollow as opposed to a full hollow, and it has humbuckers as opposed to singles.

Another guitar to look at is the Ibanez AS series.

I personally like the black/ebony 335s, as well as the black Memphis 335s.

The Sheratons are nice though. I just haven't seen a color I liked from the ads I've seen.

^Well, to be truthful, I'm transferring back up to Sacramento due to money issues. It is a good school, however. If you live in Mission Viejo, you should be golden, though. The campus is beautiful and the people are nice. Not exactly a party school, though. It is also known as "The University of Chinese Immigrants" because of the high asian population.

I'm a huge Gretsch guy, though.

On the cheaper end of their line-up, I really like the G5122 Electromatic in red, as well as most of the colors on the G5120.

I've got an Epiphone Dot Studio. It's alright, but the pickups arne't quite right for me and Dots are too much of a pain to upgrade for me to use it much. It's mostly used as a 'quiet acoustic'.

Still, I want to get a hollow Telecaster with two P-90s, a hollow Strat with two humbuckers (both these guitars would have F-holes - F-holes on Strats and Telese are awesome!), and my Les Paul is heavily chambered anyway and almost sounds like a semi-hollowbody.

Don't have one but I plan on owning one soon. I've been looking around but can't really find one that is right for me. I want an Indie rock type sound and I tried out a blue Ibanez Artcore Series the other day and it sounded pretty nice. Anyone know of any other hollowbodies within the $500ish range with a great Indie rock sound?

If I ever get one, probably a Grestch Electromatic or an Epiphone Casino.
