1) yes
2) not sure probably better tone out of the hollow body
3) anything except stuff with high gain (they tend to feed back)
4) same as #3
5) gretsch but more reasonalby priced, ibanez has some good ones for cheaper
6) electric
7) depends on your preference of sound, imo

1. Yes
2. Full Hollow Body- basicly acoustic guitar with electric picups
Semihollow body- like a thin bodied acoustic. and usually has a block runing down the middle of the hollowed out part.
3. Jazz, Blues, rock, stuff with guitars in it.
4. see number 3
5. Gibson, Some epiphone, Fender (has 1 hollow tele) , Ibanez, others but i dont know them
6. Some jazz players like flat wound strings. Other jsut like normal strings.
7. probably semi hollowbody. i think it depnds on the player though.

The Telecaster is a good if non-stereotyped blues choice.
Posers are like punks, except they do it for fashion

Tele makes some great blues sounds... I dont know why im the only person locally who agrees.. everyone is like "If you want clean sounds, or for soft soloing (remember noone here likes blues) play a strat, teles are for country"

I love telecasters.

Telecasters are pretty versatile.
Gear:
Black Jackson Dinky 2
Peavey Envoy 110
and that's it.

Eric Clapton used an ES-335, but i would pay $2000 for that


He also used an SG and now uses a Strat.

The ES335 is a classic blues box.
