yes?

Anyone know of any other hollowbodies within the $500ish range with a great Indie rock sound?

Depends on what you want exactly. My artcore is mahogany with a birch top, so it has a warmer tone than a maple guitar.

There are a lot of guitars in that price range that could pull that sound off. Try the Epiphone Alleykat.

I'm curious about semi-hollow guitars, although I haven't tried one out yet.

What draws you to them? What distinguishes the tone? What sound do you like to get through them that other guitars don't quite get?

I assume that the tone would be a wee bit thicker than a solid-body due to the vibrations resonating through the body.

1. They are so damned beautiful

2. They have a distinct fat, yet smooth sound

3. I love the way they sound for slide guitar. Solid bodies don't quite have that bite with slide.

Many years ago, I bought a Gibson ES-330. Well without me doing anything about it, it turned into a collectors item. I love the hollow body, and I love the P90 sound. But since I "double" on sax, flute, wind synthesizer, vocals, keyboards and guitar on stage, it is a sure formula to put more dings in a collectors item.

So I bought a used Epiphone Casino to play on stage. I love both of them.

Here they are:

Casino.

It's lightweight, you can play it as an acoustic, and it has that wonderful P90 sound.

That's my opinion, YMMV

That ES-330 is hot. Is it brown (i'm colorblind)?

They have a vintage ES-330 at my local guitar center. It's tagged at $4500.

Also, how does the Casino sound against the 330? I've never played one (a 330 that is.)

My first electric was a semi. I had saved up for a Les Paul, but fell in love with the look and sound of the used Ibanez Artist AM50 my local shop had hanging on the wall:


My other semi is an Ibanez Artcore AM77. It is far from stock:

I don't actually own it, but it is the sechs. That's why I posted it !


EDIT:

^^^ You're kidding, right? It's just a green country club. Meh-ness compared to White Falcon.
