My quest for a hollow-body jazz-type guitar is chronicled in this thread: http://www.tdpri.com/threads/shopping-for-a-hollow-semi-hollow-electric-any-tips-advice.796441/ ...and after some education and research I ended up buying a new (2017) Ibanez AG95 online and it arrived today! The body is made of bubinga wood, and a nice specimen if I say so myself—beautiful dark, swirly grain figures; I love it. The neck (mahogany & maple, with rosewood fretboard) had excessive relief, an obvious bow, possibly from environmental changes traveling across the country from the Northeast. It was merely playable, and before long I tightened the truss rod and tweaked the action. Truss rod works, it's playing great now and the neck has a very 'positive' feel to it, solid and smooth. It's very interesting—my fingers were doing new things. I wanted to keep playing but it's been a long day and I'm beat. I must say I'm not the least bit disappointed (and I was prepared to be), this is a truly great guitar, very pretty too, and I love its dusky tones. The pickups are "Super 58's" for what that's worth; I guess they are a cut above the humbuckers on the 70 series etc. In any event, they sound great, the neck position really is the kind of sound I was after for this guitar, and the bridge HB has a nice, unexpected bite to it that sounds fantastic for rockabilly-type rockin'. The body is slightly smaller than big 'jazzboxes' which makes it comfortable, I like it. The guitar is really light weight, of course, another thing that makes me glad I'm old. The AG95 is quite unlike any of the other seven electrics I own (and play)—all solid bodies (including another Ibanez). I haven't owned a hollow body since the '80s, and this totally fills that void. It came with the same D'addario .010's I use on everything else, they're still in okay condition so I haven't changed them yet. In a few days I'll change strings (should I try .011's??) and oil the fretboard, the rosewood looks dry. No hardshell case; I'll get one. For now it looks good on a stand: I think the Ibanez headstock angle is 10 degrees — way less than Gibson's 17º (right?) and Epiphone's 14º — not so likely to break. In the words of the Guitar Center sales girl, excuse me, sales associate, mentioned in my "Shopping" thread — I can totally, totally recommend this guitar, totally. It's totally awesome.
