Hey guys,

Just a question regarding sem-hollowbodies. As I've sold my guitar and been looking at buying a new one, I've borrowed my friend's Epiphone Sheraton. I'm really starting to warm to it, but I see a few problems, and was wondering if anyone could suggest a semi-hollow that could rectify them.

I really liked the resonance of the guitar, especially when palm muting - it just gave it a lovely round, fat sound with distortion. I also liked the neck, it was very smooth.

However, I found it rather bulky and difficult to manoeuvre around, and found myself often standing still playing instead of my usual wandering around type thing. I also found it quite trebly and had too much of a mid/treble tone that lacked bass and detracted from the roundness of the sound.

Can anyone think of or suggest a semi-hollow that's more practically sized with more of a bassy tonal sound than screechy middy?

Thanks.

umm Ibanez have released some more but hey look at John Frusciante and when plays the Gretsch White Falcon he looks pretty small

Semi hollows are meant to be big, like an acoustic, hence 'Semi-Acoustic'.

a standard Epi ES335/DOT is a good deal, but get the Deluxe version if anything.

If you want a cheap one, a Dot Studio could be for you?

but a Sheraton is a higher end version of the semi acoustic series.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

No it isnt, Sheratons retail for around £350, Casinos are more high end, they retail at £450 upwards. They're fitted with single coil p-90s.

Also yeh Ibanez make a good jazz box, forget doing stage jumps and scissor kicks with it though, they are incredibly fat and bulky, but thats what you get if you want an electric hollow body.

unless you got with a chambered body guitar with an f hole


Sounds like a good idea... If I saved I could Warmoth myself. I guess the only problem is that a standard sized guitar isn't big enough to have the room to create the resonance required, right?

Casino's and Sheraton II (which are the only ones you are gonna find at a store) start at the same price here in America and they have the same list price. And aren't the Casno's full hollow? I know that on the Music123 they have it listed as a semi but I'm almost positive there is no block in the casinos.
I listen to music and I don't need your opinions about what I listen to.

Epiphone Wildcat (or Wildkat, not sure on spelling) is a nice guitar.
