    I have owned both a hollow and a semi-hollow. Granted, they were knock-offs (Ibanez hollow, SX semi-hollow), but I was still generally disappointed in both. The guitars looked cool, and each was significantly lighter (weight) than a solid-body, but I found them bulky and awkward to play. I guess I thought I would discover some cool tones, but the humbuckers just just sounded like humbuckers.

    Thank you E :) great videos. Regarding tone knob on guitar, I’ll check the capacitor, if it’s low, I replace it with a higher value one.
    Very nice guitar my brother!
    Happy NGD in advance! And congrats on the cornfield tour LOL :p

    I don’t know, but I’m sure it has a HB :D maybe the headstockless guitar? lol
    Thank you, you’re helping :D

    I don’t mind the size, I had a semi hallow before. Neck and tone are the most important factors.

    Buy a new guitar when you've worn out the one you have. :D

    I love the one I have. I don’t think that any other guitar could replaced it :D however, sometimes you both need a break lol

    I listen to the voices in my head a lot more than most of the opinions on this forum. Seems to have worked.

    Having said that, this is REALLY what you need

    Nope... not one of the .strandberg* guitars, and not a humbucker in sight either.
    i used a stock MIJ '57 style Stratocaster with a maple neck and low output AlNiCo pickups, neck pickup setting for both tracks.

    This is a type of guitar which is normally thought of as quite bright and spanky, tone-wise. And yet...
    Go back to that 2nd video i linked above, and pay close attention to point #6, please.
    Stop GASsing, and get in the 'shed!

    Amazing! what have you done?

    Yes, the player! But can I make a note sound different than yours?

    GASsing is a built-in feature, it comes and goes lol

    She knows her instruments. She listens to the voices in her head. And then comes the practice. :D

    I’m the opposite more or less lol

    The middle road is to stop spending time GAS:ing. Just get what you want and get back to playing :)
