How is this thing? It's very Ted Nugent, dontcha think? I wonder how this would accept my Dual Rec, and all of my pedals? Just wanted to see if anyone else has had any experience with it. I'm going into more of a callsic vibe ( Doors, Foghat, Skinard ) WoRd....

Well, sure looks good, always kinda wanted one of those.......George Thorogood uses ES-175s exclusively, if that's a good enough reccomendation for you....

Through a Dual Rec? You're kidding me right? Once you get over a crunch level of gain, you're going to be in feedback hell. I'm not talking controlled feedback here. Hollowbody guitars resonate so much that you'll be fighting the feedback.

If you wish to play clean though then it'll sound amazing

I've heard jazz musicians will stuff a shirt into the body cavity to cut back on the feedback, or stick foam into the f-holes......maybe that would help a bit?

Yeah, that's a good idea. I know the Nuge vouches for these things just for the sustain....

Nugent's hollowbodies are Byrdlands---
If you like this style of guitar I suggest a semi-hollow, look at an ES137. It has a mahogany center block to tame the feedback a bit. I own an ES135 (older version of a 137) and can run it through any of my amps without problems. In a live situation, it's great, at the sound check you move around and find all of the right places to stand for the best controled feedback.

Yesh, feedback like a beyatch, but you can get things to prevent this (forgets the name of the product)

The ES-175 is an awesome guitar. However, it is very overpriced these days. It's still a great guitar, but you're getting ripped off.

Feedback generally isn't a problem unless you're planning on playing distorted, in which case a semi-hollowbody or just a solidbody would suit you better.

However, playing it through a dual rectifier, I imagine you're planning on playing it with distortion . Don't get a hollowbody. I don't recommend getting a semi-hollowbody either if you're going to be putting rectifier-like amounts of gain on there.

I'd go solidbody.

He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Steve Howe uses them so they must have pretty good tone.

Music can't really be judged, since it's all on the same level. Unless it's screamo. then it sucks.
