SO, I've been contemplating getting a hollow/semi-hollow guitar for quite sometime now and i was down at the local music store and had a shootout between an epiphone Casino and a Epiphone Dot and the Casino (in my opinion) came out WAY on top. Fuller, more articulate, sparkly/jangly and an ultimately heavier sound (distorted and clean) than the dot which sounded thin and nasal by comparison. The only problem is that I have heard many horror stories about the Casino's feeding back hard when plugged in and turned up. Granted I won't likely be plugging it in with my hard rock/metal band and distorting the hell out of it (though that'd be nice once in awhile) but I WOULD like to rock it out along the Black crowes/Aerosmith etc. styles . . . is that doable or will it be a feedback monster?? Would the Dot be a better choice in that department?? i DO have a noise gate, thoughts/opinions??
