Ok so I currently love my setup, but I was thinking about maybe tossing something else into the mix... a new sound. I have always loved hollow and semi-hollowbody guitars and their sound. Ideally I'd like a Gibson es-335, but I lack the $2000+ to buy one. That is why I need your opinions. What would another suitable route be other than gibby. Epi (are they worth it?), Ibanez, Hagstrom?
My gear:
-Fender Jaguar HH
-Fender Fat Strat
-Guild GAD-G212
-Washburn D33S
-Vox AC30CC1 tube amp
-Vox 847 wah
-EH Big Muff
-EH Double Muff
-EH POG
-EH Small Clone

I have a full hollowbody Artcore and I adore it. Much, much cheaper too

Fender American Standard P-Bass

Check out a Fender '72 Telecaster Thinline. They're semi-hollow, with two humbuckers, and they sound amazing. For a while I was considering trading my Strat for one.

-Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Amp

you should get the epiphone version of the es-335, the quality should (as it being an epiphone which are owned by gibson) be pretty simlar to the the gibson and will be A LOT cheaper, but being a fender fan, i'd go for the 72 thinline

I've got a Thinline Telecaster type guitar. It's called Wesley Freeport and it's a semi-hollow Telecaster with two P90s and a gibson type neck (i.e. not as thin as fender necks).

It has quite a good sound, though I'm a beginner and it's the only guitar I've ever played. But like you've said I fell in love with the semi hollow sound. If only I had enough money to get the real thing.

Dude i just got a Schecter C1 Semi Hollow and it kicks ass. Its gotta piezo, some sweet Pick-ups(some may think not). But its definetly worth the $699 price tag.

I came to that conclusion as well, so I'm getting a Agile AS 820, and later I shall replace the pickups.

Try the Dot, Sheraton, Casino and Riviera are all great guitars,
I personally prefer the sound of the Casino, but try them all... Im sure you will love one of those
#12
I love the way the hagstrom viking looks, it's one of the sexiest guitars I've ever seen... I have no clue how it plays though, I want to get my hands on one.
#13
Epiphones make amazing semi hollows, i'd look into those.

I really love the Casino and a friend of mine got the 335 Dot I think, they got lots of great models.
