An electric guitar’s body style gives the instrument unique characteristics. Unlike solid body guitars, semi-hollow body and hollow body electric guitars have voids within them and F-shaped holes, like those found on violins.
LAWK STAR Guitars offers hollow body and semi-hollow body electric guitars online by top makers, such as: D’Angelico, Gretsch, Paul Reed Smith and Schecter.
Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitars
Withmore resonance than a solid electric guitar, a semi-hollow body guitar has a solid wood block in the center of the body and hollow wings. This design gives the instrument a sustained sound and more stability, while cutting back on feedback at high amplification levels. The pickups convert the string and body vibrations into an electric signal, making it great for a variety of music genres—from blues to rock.
Full Hollow Body Electric Guitars
Appearing similar to an acoustic guitar in shape and sound, a hollow body, or jazz, guitar produces more resonance and a deeper tone than solid guitars. Many choose it this type of guitar because you can play it unplugged, for its deep bass response and because of its full, rich tones. At high amplification levels, hollow body guitars may produce feedback because of their archtops.
