I love hollowbodys for multiple reasons. I own a right handed flipped to a lefty 67 gibson es-330 and a lefty Korean casino. for at home and rehearsal I put miles on my casino, and for recording and shows I use my gibson. one they are extremely versatile guitars, also i love p90 pickups, and fully hollowbodys and i can imagine semi hollow body's are extremely light. one you've played enough with your amp settings you can really get tricky with controlled feedback. the end!
Check out Peerless guitars. They are Korean Gretsch,Gibson and Epiphone copies, and are really well made, some say they are better than modern Gretches.
I've got the Gigmaster SC, which is a copy of Gibson es295, and it looks fantastic, with a Gold finish and P90's.It also sounds great for Garage and Punk, and it costs around 700 euros with a hard case.
I used a Cort Jim Triggs II (with TV Jones Classic pickups) for years and loved it. I'm too cheap right now for the fret job it needs and just got a Reverend Pete Anderson (p-90's). Awesome guitar with grit when the bass roll-off knob is turned up. Highly recommended!! Strangely, the Cort had awesome useable feedback whereas my Reverend's feedback is high-pitched, shrill and unmusical. A very versatile guitar, though.
my mates got an epiphne casino and its amazing its really good with distortion and the bigsby allows for great controlled feedback ,also the guy from the sonics used a epiphone riviera
and let us not for get the awsome big gibson hollow bodys of the 50's like chuck berrys and scotty mores one with p-90s
