Well the advantages is that they sounds beautiful, the only disadvanted with a Full hollow body is that you get feedback quite easy.

But with my DOT that is a Semi hollow body I dont get any feedback unless I turn against the amp but im still able to control the feedback

Would a semi-hollow body alleviate the feedback problem at the cost of some tone? I like using lots of gain.

I prefer the Ibanez artcores over epi dots. Just preference, but when I compared both the artcore beat it hands down. Both great guitars. Both very beautiful.

yoduh - Don't go for a semi-hollow if you want to play hi-gain. There are better guitars for that. I don't mind throwing some dirt and grit in with a semi hollow, but I'll save the high gain stuff for my ibz guitars.

I like how every single guitar posted so far has been semi-hollow instead of the full-hollow promised by the title.

To correct this issue, I present my Synchromatic:

I was just going to say don't we have a Semi-hollow only thread already?


The Casino is a full hollow body...
#15
Hey all i dont have or play a hollow body but i am very courious, i have a couple of questions.

1. what applications (genre) r they usually used in?

2. How r they diff from acoustic eletric?

3. what are the advantages?

4. can they be used in any genre?

Sorry for the nube questions i know nothing about them but have always been courious about hollow bodys.

Cheers

Great thread

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

what constitutes a semi vs full hollow body? Open space behind the pups? % of drilling?


I'll go find a pic of mine...


A semi hollow got this block of wood that runs in the middle.

Those Artcore guitars looks awsome, especailly the one with natural finish.

Hmm maybe we should start one of those groups

Nice thread. I don't have pics of my Univox or Gibson handy, so this one will have to do. It's my fave. Love the Artcore series, I used to have an AS73.

Don't have any pics yet, but I have an Ibanez Artcore AFS75T, it's all right. I removed the pick guard and pick up covers. I prefer my Telecaster for lead work, but the Artcore is nice for rhythm and slide.

By the way to those complaining about feedback, it's never been an issue unless I'm playing at Metal like distortion levels (which I don't).

Which do you want more? A LTD M-1000 Snow White or a PRS?
#30
Depends on what I'm playing. Metal, the M-1000 for sure. Anything else, the PRS - even then, maybe for tuning down for the heavier stuff.

I have an Epi WildKat on order, what a sweet looking machine it is too.
Yes, I know it's a semi-hollow but we're splitting hairs.

I own a pair of Jon Kammerer Hollowbodies and a Semi-Hollowbody.

The first is like the one at the top of this page;
(http://www.experiencedinstruments.com/pages/Kammerer.htm

The second is like this
http://jonkammererguitars.com/jkghtml_009.htm

and the Semi-Hollow looks like this:

http://jonkammererguitars.com/jkghtml_010.htm

I'm currently seriously considering a Carvin semi-hollow or hollowbody. I'd probably get a SH550 Semi-Hollow Carved Top w/Bigsby, but in the red that is shown on the SH575 MIDI above it (or the Natural Flame or Spalted Maple- decisons, decisions)... with gold hardware.

I'd also like to own a Veillette (perhaps a Swift Baritone?).

And a Phantom Teardrop hollowbody of some kind.

Here are my semi's:







Also, though most do not have sound holes, most Danelectro's are semi-hollow as well, as they are a wood frame with center block and a slab of masonite on top and bottom:
