I play guitar a few times a month at my church, electric or acoustic. Right now I'm playing my Les Paul, because my Strat is in the shop. When I get it back, I'll be using the Strat (its a good 2 lbs lighter than my LP). In the past I've played Telecasters, and an SG (with p-90s) for a good year. I play whatever I want. I say go for the hollowbody, I used to own an ES-175, is at the very top of the list of guitars I've sold, but wish I had not.
