    Does it refer to a hollowbody electric or an acoustic with electronics installed?

      As far as I know it just means electric acoustic.

    I used to hear that term in Korea. I think it's used to refer to semi and hollow bodies.

      This is my understanding of it. "Electro-acoustic" would be a 'proper' acoustic guitar with a pickup installed, "semi-acoustic" would refer to a ES335, ES5 or similar guitar.

       

      I am English though, I'm sure the Americans have a different word for it .png" alt=":smileywink:" title="Smiley Wink" />

    I had a coffee table book of guitars when I was younger, and it called semi-hollow guitars semi-acoustic.

      There isn't much acoustic in most semi-acoustics!

        What's the difference between semi-acoustic and semi-electric?

          Semi-electrics plug into amps, but their output is so low it's useless, just like a semi-acoustic guitar's acoustic output.

            When I was a kid back in the 60s-70s, semi-hollows and hollow-bodies were generally referred to this way. The theory was that you could also play them acoustically, but everyone knew it never worked in the real world.
