hey, im lookin for a new guitar and was wondering if a guitar like a gibson es 335 or an epiphone casino-type box guitar would sound good for some rythm distortion and power chords. would something that is semi-hollowbody rock?

A Semi-hollowbody should be fine for that as long as you don't use a TON of distortion. For low to mid distortion it should be great. I'd suggest that you go and try some semi-hollowbodies out and pick ones that you like.

Ted Nugent thinks they rock.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

The Casino isn't a semi-hollow, it's a full hollowbody.

An ES-335 type guitar would do fine in a rock situation.
There once was a man who really loved salt
So he tied his nose to the sea
And then God came down from his silver throne
And said, 'Honey, that water ain't free

Gilby Clarke played a hollow body live with GnR as well.

Hollowbodys are great for rock, as long as you don't use huge amounts of gain unless you want lots of feedback etc, although some semi's hardy feed back at all.
