You can use hollow and semi-hollow guitars for many styles, sometimes including metal. Mainly, these hollowed guitars are suited for jazz, blues, and melodic/soft rock (think 'Best of You' by the Foo Fighters). I've got an Ibanez Artcore AF75 that I use for primarily Foo Fighters-influenced music, dabblings into harder rock (Chevelle), and grunge. It works fine, you just need to EQ a lot to reduce feedback or get a noise gate. Usually, the only feedback I get is what I create, or if I don't tame my strings after playing through a song (ie, Muting).

I strongly suggest the Artcore series, as I feel that some of the Epiphone hollowbodies feel, sound, and play cheap. With the Artcore, I felt a sense of lavishness running my hand on the creme-bound neck. Smooth and articulate. Very nice overall.

My Determinations of Some Hollowbodies:
-Epi DOTs: Feel, sound, play cheap. "Laminated" top, just don't sound all that pleasing unplugged.
-Epi Joe Pass: A waste of investment. Better off going with an Artcore.
-Epi Casino: From what I have heard, they are somewhat worse than DOTs.
-Epi Sheraton: The best of the bunch from Epi, however, I feel Artcores surpass this.

Suggestions: Ibanez Artcore (any price, they will all be pleasing) and possibly the Schecter Corsair/C-1 Hollowbody with Piezo. The Schecters may be the same, but I don't recall really.

most jazz artists use full hollows, semi hollow has quite a different sound than a full hollow.

but yes, gibsons es line, particularly the 335. 335s are my favorite guitar in the world, in a cherry red, ooh yeah.

Usually Jazz

Because they are pretty prone to feedback, they are not used in metals

They have an airy tone, which might be desirable for jazz, usually not for metal though
