About Semi Acoustic & Hollowbody Guitars

The semi-acoustic guitar is perennially popular. Essentially a semi hollow guitar, the semi-acoustic is an electric guitar with f-holes on the body like a violin or a cello. This type of guitar has been famously played by artists including Oasis and John Lee Hooker. The most famous example of this is the Gibson ES-335, a guitar we keep in each of our stores in a plethora of finishes and specs.

A close variant of this is the hollow body guitar such as the Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor or the Gretsch White Falcon. These guitars are favoured by a wide range of players from the Jazz world to Country and rock 'n' roll players.

Frequently Asked Questions about Semi Acoustic & Hollowbody Guitars

Question: I've heard that feedback can be an issue with these guitars. Is this true?
Feedback is generally a nasty by-product of factors such as standing too close to a speaker (be it your amplifier or a PA speaker). It can also occur when extreme amounts of overdrive are used. Any guitar can be susceptible to feedback and the semi-hollow nature of these guitars doesn't necessarily make a huge difference. Guitars including the Gibson ES-335 have a maple centre block. This really helps with neutralising feedback problems. Fully hollow instruments, however, will be more likely to howl into feedback. Bear this in mind and perhaps choose a model with a solid centre block to counteract this if you plan on driving your sound particularly hard.
Question: Which semi-acoustic guitar is the most popular?
The Epiphone ES-335 Dot is the semi-acoustic guitar that sells the most. Cherry is the most popular finish. It is based on the famous Gibson ES-335 which we also sell in all of our guitarguitar stores.
Question: What kind of music is played on a semi-acoustic guitar?
All sorts of music is played on electro acoustic guitars. They are very popular with Blues, Rock and Indie players whilst the bigger bodies semi acoustic guitars are a Jazz mainstay. Having said that, lots of Alternative and Metal bands use these types of guitars too so there are no rules!
Question: Do semi-acoustic guitars sound like acoustics or electrics?
Semi-acoustic guitars (despite the name) are electric guitars and therefore do not sound like acoustic guitars at all. The name references the hollow areas within the body. This does affect the sound to a certain degree, but this is within the context of the guitars still operating and sounding like electric guitars.
