A modest windfall came my way, and naturally I'll be buying a guitar. I'm GASsing for a hollow or semi-hollow body electric, mainly for jazz tones, but also just because I haven't had one in ages. I can spend up to about $400. There are some candidates around town including a couple of Epiphones I'll be trying. I'm shopping locally because I want to inspect and play before buying. New or used, it just has to sound & feel right to me. I know hollow and semi-hollow guitars are rather different animals, and a hollow-body would be okay, e.g. I don't encounter feedback situations. So: are there any aspects of these guitar types, or individual makes and models, that I should be checking for? Histories of problems? That sort of thing, and any tips anyone has along these lines. Thanks in advance for any knowledge, recommendations, warnings or general thoughts!
