Many great blues guitarists use a semi-hollow body guitar. It has a woody tone that can have a deep and mellow sound as well as a bright and thin sound.

This guitar also has a resonant, acoustic quality that produces a unique sound when pushed through overdriven amps or pedals. If you're a traditionalist, this guitar is a viable choice for you.

Pros would be the sound, the look, and the range of tone. Be careful of stage volume and placement of this guitar near the amp. It can produce a healthy amount of feedback if you're standing in the wrong place or playing at high volumes. Do the pros outweigh the cons? You better believe it.
