I am looking at getting a hollowbody (or semi-hollow) but don't know which is the best for me. I want it to sound big and full when unplugged so I can bring it to a party or bonfire and jam without being drowned out by acoustics, but I don't want a lot of low end and distortion from the pickups because I would be using it for worship at my church from time to time. I know a lot of the companies, but I am more interested in sound quality so just tell me what's best, not most popular. Keep in mind that I'm looking to spend under $1,000 if possible. Thanks.

Make sure you get one that's filled with sand. It won't sound right otherwise.

The Epiphone Whateverthe****. It's been so long since I cared about guitars I forgot the names, but it's the ES-335 Epi model. Sheraton or something.

No semi will sound comparable to an acoustic in terms of volume, they'll be louder, but not loud enough. An old jazzbox would fit the bill nicely.

My things:
Bowes SLx7
Washburn WG587
Washburn X40Pro
Washburn X50
Washburn HM24
Washburn WR150
Laguna LE200s
Arietta Acoustic
First Act
Valveking 112
VHT Deliverance

I've got a gretsch electromatic for around 800usd and love it. It doesn't compare to an acoustic in volume though, honestly. It's a bit louder than solid body electrics when unplugged, but not like an acoustic.

I usually go to the local graveyard for those.

Tip: If they are not completely hollow, continue disemboweling until desired effect.
