No longer are full and semi-acoustic guitars just big expensive jazz boxes for jazz players.

Lovely guitar in both looks and craftsmanship. It is a relatively cheap guitar, but you wouldn't notice it from the sound or from its comfort factor. The neck is thin, fast, and wonderfully comfortable. The laminate bubinga is beautiful. I picked this up the other day after looking at various archtops and I remain impressed. The tone was so-so before I put flatwound strings (D'Addario ECG24 Jazz Light Chromes); it then immediately sounded perfect...truly shimmering creamy mellow tone.Two complaints: One is the feedback at times, but that seems to be the nature of jazz guitars. This of course can be corrected with the proper setup, amplication settings, shielding, etc. Two is that I would have preferred a single floating neck pickup, but this is very minor.I have 6 guitars, and like others say, this is not the most expensive. It definitely remains my favorite. Ibanez really made a fantastic 'box with this one...do yourself a favor and check one out.
Wow this guitar is amazing. If your a jazz guitarist get this guitar!!! The fret board is nice and smooth and the fret board inlay is beautiful. the f holes give a great tone to the guitar and the paint is just amazing.You will not be dissapointed.
Wow, I got this guitar about 5 months ago and its amazing for the price. The fretboard is nice and smooth.The only reason that I was a ittle annoyed by was that the d string buzzed alot but I got that fixed. I was playin at my school concert and i was very pleased at how well it played. This guitar could have been easily priced at 1,000+ dollars. This is a no brainer.
Ok, I play this guitar in my church praise band but it really stands out in our school jazz band. The tone is beautiful not too much echo in the sound. I also distort it and it sounds better than many gretch and gibbs I've heard. All and all a great guitar.
The AG86-TRD is a true hollow body electric guitar. The tone is superbly mellow and the fretboard is slick and buttery. The top, sides and backwood is highly figured African Bubinga (truly beautiful). The fret inlays are abalone shell. This guitar is so much fun to play that I never use it to compose, just to pick. It is the cheapest guitar I own, but also my favorite.
This guitar rocks. Dollars for Doughnuts you can't find a better deal. I use this for professional giging and it sounds great.All of the 70's Blues and Classic Rock stuff jumps right out of this monster.It came set up perfectly with super low action.It is faster than my Strats. Get yourself one.
I have owned this guitar for about 6 months now and it is my only "inexpensive" one. It is a new favorite though. Plays so smooth and sounds great too! My guitar instructor said "Now, that's what a guitar should feel like!". Looking for another inexpensive great? Try the "Epiphone Valve Jr. Head".
i agree with what everyone else has said. the first thing that jumped out at me was how beautiful this guitar is, the dark trans red over bubinga is gorgeous. it even smells good. the clean sound is decent, nothing really unique, but there is a good difference between the 3 pick up selections. overdriven this thing is a beast. it sounds really full do to its full hollowbody. some nice feedback too, but not too much.take note though that this is one of the bigger artcores. its about a fingers length thick. i didnt realize it but a lot of the other artcores are half that thick. so if your looking for a lighter, thin hollowbody, look at the other ones and pay attention to the thinkness.
This is the least expensive of my collection but it holds its own as one of my favorites. The neck is silky smooth. Has a pretty wide range of tones with the 3-way switch, and the stock pickups do the job. I play through another inexpensive favorite, the Epiphone Valve Jr. Head. Check it out - lots of tubey goodness and not much dough! With this combo I can dial in a wide range of tones from clean jazz with lots of reverb, to BIG HAIR Marshall stack sound. This guitar is worth every penny!
I have owned this guitar for about 5 years now and it is the best jazz guitar that I have ever played. I am professional musician, and I have been playing all my life. If you buy this guitar, it is perfect off the shelf. Even more, if you upgrade the tuners and the pickups, it will even stand up to the benson and metheny model arch-tops. I recomend changing the pickups to the gibson 57' reissue humbuckers, and the tuners to standard gibson pearl. It really packs a good punch for the price.
