Zach Myers of Shinedown has a signature model PRS SE that is a semi-hollow body.

You can play just about any genre with any guitar if you have the chops and an amp that works for you. (Steve Howe played an ES175) - I say give the hollowbodies and semis a try. Ibanez Artcore AFS75T is a hollow for around $500, the Gretsch Anniversaries (G6118s) or Gibson ES 330s if you have the budget... They have a different vibe that is well worth investigating....

I’m predominantly a metalhead and have an SE Semi-Hollow. The only thing that guitar doesn’t do well is modern chugga chugga metal, but that’s certainly not why I bought it. No feedback issues at all. It’s my main guitar in the funk/rock/R&B cover band I’m in and there’s a few sections of songs I make things just slightly heavier/more distorted than the album versions of songs just to rock ‘em out a little more before going back to the basic edge of breakup tone I ride the volume knob the rest of the set.

I play out of two 2x12’s and while I don’t crank up like I would in a hard rock/metal band, the few times I have with that guitar it DOES get some killer controllable feedback going on when you’re at that pant flapping volume, but none of the bad stuff. There’s a bit more resonance to it with chords, if you dial an amp in so it’s really retaining the natural tone of the guitar there’s some beefiness in there that I dig.
