Hi

I'm considering buying hollow body guitar for jazz. I'm looking for something cheap and warm. I found two Ibanez

I also found this one, but I dont know anything about this brand

What do You think about this Carlo Robelli?

Stick with the Ibanez.  Robelli is a really cheap brand.

I've had the AF75 anf AF95, Both are great players for the money.

Ibanez makes kind of the gold standard in inexpensive semi & full hollows. Hard to beat.

Good idea!

Kingpins are killer, but their used prices are all over the place. It is certainly possible to find them under $600 on occasion. As it happens, Reverb is having a sale, and some participating sellers have some for sale.

I have an Ibanez AF75 and it's perfect for the limited sound I bought it for. I wanted a jazz like guitar that I could use for specific gigs where I needed something other than a normal electric sound. I put a Bigsby on mine to add a little "shimmer" and it works well. I used the import B700 that you have to mount permanently but I never intend to remove it. By the way the action I have on mine is as low as my other guitars and is very nice (just in case that is a concern).
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.
