Playing a hollow body through a high gain amp, or putting active pickups in a hollow body and playing it through any amp?

Just asking.

So if I put EMGs in a Dot Studio (chep axe I'm getting to mod like crazy) and plugged it into a 5150, I would get crazy uncontrollable feedback?

Sweet..

You'd probably get the most feedback if you took some shoddy humbuckers that have not been dipped in wax and are microphonic as hell because of that - some cheap pups from a beginner's axe maybe.

I'd agree. I got some beat to hell Aria Diamond Explorer from one of my teachers at school, and the pickups give so much feedback, it's unbelievable. I can't even play it because of the feedback.

I've got my old Ibanez GAX lying around, would those be about right? It always used to feed back but I just assumed it was the amp, as it did that even with my Schecter and Charvel.

Hollow bodies were known for feeding back. They made changes like more wood in the center etc to combat this. They had feedback problems before high output pickups and distortion. So adding high gain to the mix with high gain pickups is asking for even more feedback.

if you want to controll feedback, and rock out on a (semi)hollowbody, stuff rags in the f-holes
