    I am partial to the AF 95, but don't own one. I almost grabbed it but while I forced myself to have a "cooling of" period someone else got it. Just about perfect.

    My Epi Riviera w/3 p-90s, is a great git for most of my playing blues, jazz, rock. I find it gets its best sound through a tube amp. The neck is a slim taper. Mine is wine red, Epi just introduced these this year in white,and gold top.

    Check out one of the Godin Kingpins:

    I own the non-cutaway single P90 model, which will pretty much with the right amp/pedal tweaking do everything you ask for, but I think you'd do better with the cutaway dual pickup model in the link.

    Godin is a Canadian company that makes EXCELLENT guitars for the money.

    oblig Harmony reference from me:

    Try to find an old Silvertone 1446 (the black one, one the couch).
    The Seth Lover-designed pickups are great...if you want more grit for your blues, get out your Tubescreamer like everyone else does.

    If you want big-box archtop sound, find an old Harmony H-62:

    I'm looking into a new semi-hollow/hollow guitar as well. Everyone tells me I won't go wrong with a Casino or a Harmony.

    Ditto..I've owned two different T5's over the past few years, trying to convince myself that I like them... and even had compliments from the audience on the sound, but they really are kind of sterile. I never bonded...sold the first one for a profit and took a loss on the second...broke even on the pair.. :confused:

    Epi Sheraton. Very versatile, very affordable. Thin hollow-body... Love it!
