You are correct in your definitions of semi-hollow body and hollow body. A hollow body guitar is simply that. The tops and sides of these guitars are built and braced according to factory design, and the tops and backs are free to vibrate. Pickups may or may not be installed. Gibson began making hollow body arched top guitars back in the 1920s with its L series, designed by Lloyd Loar.

That's about all I know about guitars. Hope this helped some.
