Semi-Hollow

K, I am a youth pastor that has to fill in very often in the youth band for worship. heres the question I have.

I am set whenever I fill in @ lead, and I have an acoustic/electric that I can use when I have to lead worship, but my question is, anyone here use a Semi-hollow to lead worship? if so, what are your thoughts?

I use acoustics, solid bodies, and my 335 (semi-hollow) to lead at times. The song list, what other musicians are being utilized that day, and simply what I feel like playing helps me determine which to use.

Our worship leader used to. It sounded fantastic. I wish he'd used it again, for a variety of reasons.

Well, are you saying hooked into a sound system or not? If you have a sound system/amp/etc, then I'd say go for it. New guitar + good sound equipment = fun. If not, stick with your acoustic, because even though semi-hollows are a bit louder than solidbodies when unplugged, it's not by enough to make it an electric-acoustic, per se.

Yeah...I should specify...my rig for worship when using an acoustic is just the acoustic ran out from a B-Band pick-up, into a DI box, into the system.

When using an electric my rig is MUCH more intensive and I spend a LOT of hours tweaking my tone. It becomes guitar, into my pedal chain, into my amp, mic'd into the system. I would NEVER send a dry electric guitar into a sound board.

Yeah when I run an electric i go guitar, into pedal, into the amp, or into the sound board. my church only has one amp, so sometimes i let the other guitarist play through it...that and it doesn't have a line out, so, it doesn't mix as well when I play it

In that case I would use an acoustic all the time and let the other guitarist use the amp. Or vice versa.

You don't want to use a line out on an amp. That will sound crappy.

I would suggest getting a good amp for yourself. There are some really good ones to be had these days inexpensively. The current bang for buck model is the Jet City 20 watter. Absolutely killer amp.

If you have to go direct to board, a Pod XTL is probably your best option.

Semi-hollow guitars are basically electric guitars. Treat it like you would an electric guitar, that includes using an amp or amp modeler of some sort.
