Gibson semi-hollow and hollow body electric guitars are, simply put, unlike anything else available. Beloved by aficionados, hobbyists, and everyone in between, a Gibson guitar is something truly special. Since the company was founded in 1902, Gibson has been pushing forward the technology that goes in to creating magnificent guitars that are as much works of art as they are instruments. To say Gibson wrote the book on the semi-hollow and hollow body guitar is in no way hyperbole. They actually released the first ever commercially produced hollow body electric guitar, and since then they have continued to blaze new ground in the world of guitar manufacturing. Because they are the originators, this has made them very popular with some of the most well-known guitarists the music world has ever known. The list of performers who use a Gibson hollow-body reads like a who's who of icons. Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, Rusty Anderson (Paul McCartney's touring lead guitarist), Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars, Joe Perry of Aerosmtih, Roy Orbison, Dave Grohl, and more have all used Gibson semi-hollows and hollow bodies to turn out some seriously memorable riffs.
With such a bevy of Gibson semi-hollow and hollow body guitars to choose from, it won't be difficult to find the one that is right for you. There's probably no better place to start than with a Gibson ES-335 such as the Studio Electric Guitar With Trapeze. Since its introduction in 1958, the ES-335 has been renowned for its incredible look and feel. This version is more focused on tone than ever before, with Dirty Fingers Plus Humbucking pickups giving you unbridled crunch when you plug in and play. If you're looking for a more all-around hollow body, check out the ES-175 Electric Guitar Vintage Sunburst. This guitar's sonic versatility makes it ideal for any playing style. It also offers incredible presence, so you know your sound is going to stand out when you strap in.
Gibson takes the time to do things the right way, and the results show in the quality of their craftsmanship. For over one hundred years, Gibson has been at the top of the mountain, and with these latest guitars, they look to be staying there for years to come.
