Well I went and bought a hollow body jazz box today. I have only been taking guitar lessons since October of last year but am serious about jazz, at least as serious as I can be at my age (63); I don't ever expect to be all that good but I am only competing against myself. I had bought a Fender Deluxe Reverb a while back and got an eCertificate from GC for $210 and went shopping today. I had previously compared the Ibanez AF75, Epiphone Joe Pass, Epiphone Swingster, and a few others; the Joe Pass was my favorite of the bunch. Today I went back and added the AFJ95 to my list. Although I was prepared not to like it as much as the Joe Pass, something about it just spoke to me. It may have been largely due to the flat wound strings which it had and that I had never tried before, but it just felt better to me, and more solidly built. GC was having another one of their $10 eCertificate for every $50 spent so I got the AFJ95 and a case to protect it. The extra size is going to take some getting used to (I am used to an Epiphone ES 339 and a Strat) but I am sure it will get comfortable with time. It has a beautiful rich tone, much more acoustic sounding than the 339. I doubt that I will ever use the bridge pickup but they didn't have an AFJ91, and it may come in handy someday anyway.
