    Semi-hollow. It has a centre-block, but a lot of it is carved-out. Still not the floating bridge of a full-hollow. It's perhaps best thought of as a Canadian single-cut ES-335.

    I've been all over it, and it is utterly flawless in fit and finish. It plays wonderfully, and really well intonated and set-up as-received. The transducer pickup is incredible. The range of tone with just pick-strike volume is incredible. I haven't figured out how to make the most of the humbuckers yet. It doesn't out-rock my Tele (yet).

    I just looked that up and they look like an incredible guitar. Very similar, I'd say. You really wouldn't need both. (But I'm in love with the transducer pickup on the A/E.)

    it looks amazing! I had a Godin 5th avenue before, and can attest to the quality of these guitars! coincidentally, Im in the market for a 335-ish guitar! tons of options at this price range though!

    Transducer?! Is that the extra switch?
    Edited to add: Ah, that's the A in A/E.

    That's true. Lots of options. The one guitar I excluded from consideration was an actual 335. Being in Canada, I decided to stay local.
