Before I met Jim, I only knew the hollow guitar, but Jim told me about other types as well. Jim is my school mate and now my best friend who I met two years back. Jim’s father is a concrete contractor and doesn’t hinder his passion. It is what he knows about an electric acoustic guitar and other variations
Guitar Lessons from Jim
This type of guitar is a combination of acoustic and electric as it has a built-in microphone, and you can connect it with an amplifier to increase the sound level. This type is right for those who want to perform in a live show because you don’t need mics separately.
Then there is a semi-acoustic guitar that has a hollow body but is an electric guitar. It is also a combination of both acoustic and electric guitars. However, this is thinner compared to acoustic guitars, besides it doesn’t produce a loud sound like hollow.
This type of guitar is perfect for those who want a variety like, who want an acoustic sound along with an amplifier as required. But, if you like hollow, then semi-acoustic will not please you. Moreover, such guitars are expensive.
