Wtf? I was watching an old episode of headbangers ball and I saw a bunch of guys with hollowbodys? One of my friends who plays metal apperently also uses a hollow body.I thought they werent good for much more than classic rock,blues and country. :
Hollow bodies sound amazing with distortion, the schecter c-1 does metal pretty well
look at the xtone i think there called by esp also a epiphone dot studio and if you got the bucks look for a gibson es-333
Well, full hollows can't handle high-gain music without creating some horrible feedback. however, semi-hollows (very few "hollowbodies" are fully hollow nowadays, really only the big-bodied jazz boxes, Gretsch types, and the Epi Casino) can probably be pushed into metal territory, depending on how you do it...
I've got my Ibanez Artcore (full hollow) sounding really good in C Standard and playing Into the Void (Black Sabbath original, first doom metal song), as well as some Queens of the Stone Age and Dream Theater, it sounds great.
BC Rich Dagger!?
i've heard some great high gain sounds come out of a semi-hollow bodied guitar. its DEFINITELY possible.
