#1: semi-hollow body guitar for jazz

Posted on 2006-07-23 21:04:22 by markr

For the past couple years I've been on a search for the right archtop
but everytime I play a 335 style guitar everything feels more natural.
I like the extra sustain, thinner body and ease of playability. So
which semi hollow body guitars would you guys recommend? Are there any
specific models that are particularly well suited for a clean, warm
jazz tone?

There's a zillion models that would work from just as many makers, some
old, some new. Just be prepared for as many answers as there are
responders to this thread. I'd take a shot considering how many Gibson
and non-Gibson thinline semis I've had, but then I might suggest 20
different models :)-

I take it back; I'll add my input - my absolute fave small-body guitar,
although it is fully hollow, is the CS336 (no Bigsby to worry about).
The only problem is the gutiar is too small to be comfortable holding
when sitting. Great when standing and lightweight, too.

I still love my 335. I've never had any trouble getting a jazz sound I like
with that guitar. I used both my 335 and my Eastman 805-CE on my last CD.

A Gibson Howard Roberts Fusion is a good axe in that category.

If you run across a used Ibanez AS193, snap it up.
