    I really like the looks of the G&L ASAT Semi-Hallow, but what kind of tonal differences do semi-hallow basses bring to the table? Can anybody tell me the difference in sound between the semi-hallow and regular ASAT? I am assuming that the semi-hallow is also a bit lighter? Any help is greatly appreciated, as I am itching to spend some cash!

    Hallowed basses recieve reverence and respect in some religious fashion.

    ;)

    Hollow basses however, refer to the link Mr. JT gave ya!

    :D

    (I own two semi-hollow bodied basses, short take: they're a bit lighter, and tend to be a bit more resonant than solid-body basses, makes the tone a bit more mellow)

    Well, seeing as Mr. Leo Fender was involved in it's design, it can be seen as both hollow and hallowed!

    Flynn Guitars in Evanston usually had a good supply of G&L stuff. Give them a call and see what they have in the line of basses.
