    How loud are the semi-hollow bodied guitars that have dual F-holes, compared to an acoustic guitar? The ones like the Casinos and Sheratons are the ones I'm mainly curious about. If you happen to have a thinline it would be cool to hear about the unplugged volume of those as well.

    the block inside that makes them semi-hollow keepes the volume down, as does the thin body. louder than a strat, but nothing like an accoustic.

    Same here. I remember my semi-hollowbody guitar ES-335 Chuck Berry type played without amplifier was a little louder than a solid body Stratocaster clone guitar and quieter than an acoustic guitar.
