I'm still on my quest to purchase a hollow-body jazz guitar. I'm looking for something that will provide volume when not plugged in. Have considered the Ibanez AF95, Epi Joe Pass, Godin etc.... I've heard mixed reviews on The Loar LH 350 but interestingly the price is competitive here in Canada ($1K before tax, no case). The LH 350 has a carved spruce top (laminate sides and back) whereas most other hollow-bodies in this price range are laminate top, sides and back. The LH 350 also come with a Kent Armstrong humbucker. Any The Loar LH 350 owners care to chime in?
