...do semi-hollows sound like they work better with effects such as chorus, flanger, phaser more than solids? I've fooled around with a lot of equipment, and I can't help but get that impression after it all.

Anybody else share this weird feeling?
I think semi-hollows sound better clean than solid bodies. And those effects usually sound better clean or with light distortion. So put those 2 together
yea i own a hollow body ibanez and i like the effect chorus a lot. I think hollow bodies have a much better sound altogether, at least for the stuff i play
