Hello, I'm looking for a new guitar for both lead and rhythm to play jazz and blues, I'm thinking that a hollow body/semi-hollow is what I'm going for, but as I've never played one some suggestions for specific models would be appreciated (I'm visiting some local music stores tomorrow). Versatility for other genres of music isn't an issue, and price range is up to $1000. Thanks in advance.
Ibanez makes some decent semi hollow guitars for under a grand. cant say a specific model off the top of my head, but try a few out if you can.
I'd suggest a hollow-body from Ibanez or Gibson. I believe Ibanezes are truely hollow,a nd Gibsons have a piece of wood going down the middle.
If you don't want one, try a stratocaster, or a telecaster. I believe they make semi-hollow telecasters. I love tele's , so maybe you should try those.

Current Gear
- Epiphone Les Paul Standard (Plus Top)
- Crappy Strat Copy (Redecorated, looks snazzy)
- Ibanez Acoustic/Electric Guitar
- Ibanez RG1570 Mirage Blue
- Peavey Vypyr 30 Watt

and you would make me incredibly jealous. im going for an ibanez hollowbody too, but my budget is only half of yours, still i've tried some of the higher mid range ibby hollows, and they are amazing.

do not go on guitar forums

there are drugs there

( and ololol there are )
I'd go with any hollowbody by Epiphone whether its the Casino, Sheraton or Dot, or an Epiphone Lucille B/c I don't think you can find a ES-355 for less than US$2000.


Sheraton II


Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

Fender MIM Stratocaster
Fender Jaguar Bass
Epiphone EJ200 Super Jumbo
Fender Excelsior 13w
Acoustic B300HD (with matching 1x12 cab)

How about an Ibanez AS-73, they're cheap and good....at least thats my opinion.

gibson dot. (or 335)

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.
