Recently i've been looking into buying a jazz/semi-hollow body guitar.. The guitar I am considering buying is a PRS semi-hollow SE Custom.. Any other ideas? And i'd like to keep it around that price range..

The Godin 5th Ave. Kingpin. Absolutely one of the most fantastic jazz guitars I have ever played. It costs around $700 USD, made entirely in Canada. If you can find one, I would strongly suggest you pick one up and play it.

The Ibanez AWD102 - I went for it over that PRS Semi-Hollow and never looked back. I'm not sure this exact model is in production anymore, but there are basically identical newer models available. Here's a pic of mine...



Just had more to it than the PRS, in my opinion.

Very true
But it's about 3 times the budget of the guitar he's looking at the moment...

Used?
ha.

Epiphone Dot. They're actually a lot truer than the price tag says;

I mean yes, feel-wise a Gibson probably will wipe the floor with it as well as longevity-wise, but Epiphone still makes kickass semihollows like they did pre-Gibson.

The only difference in the tone between the Gibson 335 and the Epiphone Dot in my opinion is that the Gibson is more sophisticated, but only in the sense that the Gibson wears a monocle and has a mustache while the Epiphone Dot has just a mustache...think like the Pringle guy with or without a monocle. Although because it's a Gibson, the value will hold better.


If you're looking for a strictly jazz guitar then, there's no beating a REAL Gibson archtop (although you don't want one because of the price) or the ES-175 (half the price but still very expensive). According to the Gibson page on the ES-175, it had the same impact on Jazz as the Les Paul did on Rock and Blues

for less than $1000 you can get some SERIOUS guitar from Ibanez.


their hollowbodies just seem so fun to play for some reason. However the pickups might not be top quality.

i've got a 95 epi sheraton and i love it, really smooth to play, easier than a 335 in my opinion, something to do with the neck that i like.

gibson 335, 175 etc are all amazing though, sound incredible and look the part as well.

i'd check out epiphone elitist rivieras though, they are basically top of the range and would be built incredibly well etc so have a look, might have to be second hand though as they discontinued last year i think.

casinos are good yeh, if your up for spending a fair amount though go for the elitist version as i found the normal 400 quid one to have a slightly poor build quality.

I own a big jazz box, a hagstrom hj600

Jazz guitars tend to be so beautiful, i've heard good things about the dots, check out some godin like the 'godin 5th avenue' i've heard good reviews on that too.




thats mine
