Can I play classic rock/hard rock music with a hollow body guitar?
I want to get an Epiphone Casino because they look absolutely gorgeous and because I want to play blues. However I don't know if a full hollow body guitar is very versatile. What genres of music can I play with a hollow body guitar? Also, what's the difference between a hollow-body and a semi-hollow like the Epiphone Dot?
I've always wanted a strat, but it was too much for me when I began playing back in High School. Now with a good paying job and the whole quarantine situation I figured it wouldn't hurt to splurge a little and pick up this bad boy. Now I have two babies, this and my cherry red Epiphone Casino. Let me know what you think! https://imgur.com/a/IxW9yTx
Note: These are in no particular order. (Finish) Brand Model - Player (Fireglo) Rickenbacker 615 - Nasty (Fireglo) Rickenbacker 4001 - Dirk (Cherry) Gretsch Tennessean - Stig (Walnut) Gretsch Country Gentleman -Stig (Sunburst) Hofner 500/1 - Dirk (Custom) Fender Stratocaster -Stig (Rosewood) Fender Telecaster - Stig (Rosewood) Gibson SG -Stig and Nasty (Sanded) Epiphone Casino - Nasty (Finish-less) Brandless Acoustic -Stig and Nasty Edit: looking back I realized that Stig played the Rickenbacker 615 once (Ouch!) and discovered the finish on the SG could’ve been a dark coat of Faded Cherry
[Question] been learning guitar for a few years, but always had issues with finger placement. I have always like the Martin LX1E, with it being smaller would that help me play and be more comfortable rather then learning on something bigger and confusing?
Been trying to learn guitar for awhile, and I find maybe it’s me, but having small hands makes it hard to play. My question is would something like a Martin LX1E be a good guitar to learn on? I have loved the LX1E for years, it’s got a great size, quality feel and knowing someone like Ed Sheeran played it and made it have great sounds is the cherry on the top. I have tried to learn guitar for about 5 years now. But have always had troubles with finger placements, and since Martin started the Sheeran signature guitars, I have had my eye on the Lx1e and have wanted one. Would a smaller guitar help learn finger placement then putting that what I have learned to a bigger guitar? I also have recently gotten into country and don’t have an acoustic and think this would be a good guitar for that and even if I ever plan to travel with it. I am also intrigued by the Epiphone Sj200 or Casino bigger then the Martin but looks like fun and Elvis played it (the Gibson version haha) but only con is might have hand issues as I do now with my regular sized electric guitars
[GEAR] Its my Cakeday So here is my Favorite Guitar of my Collection, My ES 330
I'm really shameless in this one, but in my 6 years as a Redditor, I have never caught my cakeday until today. Here is my absolute favorite guitar. It's my 2018 Gibson ES 330 VOS in Cherry. It's from a limited run of 100 guitars made in Memphis for 2018. 2018 was the first, and now, only year that Gibson Memphis made the ES 330 on the regular production line and they did a fantastic job. The VOS treatment includes a slight relic treatment that you can see in the photos of the hardware and aged binding and pickup covers and a thin lacquer coating that makes an incredibly resonant instrument. I'm already wearing through the lacquer in the back this gets played so much. For those who don't know the ES 330 is Gibson's equivalent to an Epiphone casino. It has a 16th fret neck joint as opposed to a 19th fret like an ES 335 ( some later 60s models for a short time did have a 19 fret neck joint these are typically called ES 330L's), two p90 pick ups, and a complete hollow construction with no center block, thus the trapeze tail piece. They are true rock machines through than through. With no further ado, here is the gallery 2018 Gibson ES 330 VOS 1/100 limited Run https://imgur.com/gallery/TyO3C1i Thanks!
Picking up my first electric over the summer and I'm thinking about the casino, since $600 is in my price range and it seems to have good reviews online, but I just want to double check before I shell out $600. Follow-up question: if you do think I should get it, which finish should I get? I'm torn between Cherry and Burst. Edit: If you want to drop suggestions for what I should get instead, go for it, remember this is gonna be my main ax
2015 Epiphone Casino in Cherry. I’ve been looking for one of these for a while now and finally got lucky on Craigslist! Cleaned up, restrung and off with the pick guard. In love with the tone and P90s. Anyone else out there with one have any good tips on getting the best sound? Thanks! https://imgur.com/a/U8eKCMY
Hi Guitar! Hope you don't mind a little story. I'm 24 years old and last April, I bought an acoustic on a whim. What I immediately noticed was, I could never let go of the guitar - something I never felt when I was studying piano. During my time with the acoustic, I've longed for an Cherry Epiphone Casino because of the Beatles so I practiced hard to 'deserve' the Casino. I even did open mic gigs so I could be challenged to play better in front of an audience. Six months after, I've saved up part of my pay and finally brought one home. Her name's Lorraine, and on the day I picked her up (5th September) she went to an open mic with me the same night. Today I managed to scrounge up some cash to get a small Vox amp and I'm astounded by the many sounds there is to have by just fiddling with the knobs on the amp. Though I could really use some help as to how to dial in an amp. TLDR; bought an acoustic just for kicks last April, finally got dream guitar this month. Here she is
I read in an ultimate-guitar article that he bought a used 1967 Cherry red Epiphone Casino, which he used to record the majority of the album.
They had a beautiful red burgundy Casino. It was actually for a pretty good price considering it was from 1967 or something. The guy was a friend of the band and gave me a really good deal. It was the guitar I used for all of Turn on the Bright Lights.
Does anyone have a picture of it? Is his Sunburst 1967 Casino seen in early playing days one he bought to replace it since I think the original Cherry Red one got stolen? And has that become his new go-to for most album recordings?
Hi there, I'm about to purchase my first electric guitar (I do own an acoustic one and can play it at a quite basic level), and I'm thorn between a couple options: The first one is the SX GG5 Semi-Acoustic Hollow Body (230 euros) . I've always wanted a semi acoustic guitar as I grew up listening to Tim Armstrong rocking his. This one comes into black or cherry and both are beautiful. The second one is a Epiphone SG-310 (250 euros). I do like the sg style as well, specially in full black as the one I'm looking at, but not as much as the semi hollows. Now, as far as I can see in the reviews, people say that the epiphones are made with much higher quality parts in general. So, besides preferring the looks of the SX, would the SG be a better buy? As in a guitar I will have less problems or "last" for longer in terms of when I'll feel the need to upgrade, and that feels nicer. I'd be playing mostly rock in general, punk, alternative, psychedelic, whatever I can get the grasp on the guitar! I'm kinda stuck into buying in local shops as I'm using a gift card thingy so I can't really go wider into options by shopping online. Also getting a semi hollow epiphone would put me a bit out of budget (casino is going for 400e which would be a bit of a stretch for a fun thing considering I'd also need an amp.) Sorry for the complete newbie question, and thanks in advance for any inputs on this! Cheers!
