Looking for a hollow body guitar. I would like it to cover everything from Praise and worship, to Classic Rock if possible...

If I can't have one that does both well, for this guitar, Praise/Jazz cleaner sounds is more important to me.

I don't want a whammy bar in fear that the guitar won't stay in tune as well...

Price is around say $800 bucks. I can go up to a grand with no major problem.

If you were going to pick up a new hollow body, what would you be looking at?

This will be used with my Maz Jr 18 watt NR Head, through a 2x10 and a 1x12 Dr Z Cab.

The 1x12 cab will have a Celestion Blue in it, and the other has the Dr's 10" speakers.

Thanks!

It is in the running for sure.

I don't want a guitar that I will need to change the pickups right off the bat. They don't have to be the best pickups in the world, but would be nice if they were a good solid respectable.

I wonder how these are?

Epiphone Sheraton II. Gorgeous, great players, good quality. I've been waiting for one to pop up on Craigslist, but the closest have been 250+ miles away.

tl;dr How does one safely remove the smell of a corpse from a banjo?


Would you run down past the fence?

Tell us, is the black box lying?

Some of the suggestions (above) were for semi-hollow guitars. Not that a semi is wrong, but it isn't what you asked.

My suggestion is an Epiphone Casino. Light weight, great P90 sound, fantastic neck, well built and full hollow (no block of wood down the center).

The Casino is the Epiphone version of the Gibson ES-330. I have both. The Epi is 90% as good as the Gibson, for around $600US.

Think about trying a full sized archtop. Get a guitar that sounds good unplugged as well as plugged in.
Around a campfire, at the beach, or camping, a semi hollow archtop won't get the job done without an amp.
Don't limit the guitar to just being played through an amp. Maybe something like an Epiphone Broadway or Emperor.
If you're going to buy an archtop, go for the real thing, a jazzbox.
