hey guys, long story short my cousin wants to get more into jazz-blues styles and he wants a semi-hollow (es 335 style)

budget is $800 and that is already stretching it (his words)

the first 2 i suggested are the Epi Sheraton http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Epiphone-Sheraton-II-Electric-Guitar?sku=518240

and the hagstrom viking http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Hagstrom-Viking-SemiHollow-Electric-Guitar?sku=513354

any others to look at?
I suggested the Gretsch Electromatic myself but he wants to use overdrive with it and hates the way overdriven hallowbodies sound. i'll look into the ibanez line
