    Well...I just picked this up. Does it qualify?

    Jay Turser ES-335 copy

    Right now it has roundwounds on it but soon it will have flatwounds for that jazz tone. I also play through a vintage Roland Cube 60 (orange tolex). That also yields a nice clean jazz sound.
    Guitars = Chick Magnet
    Guitar Hero = Guy Magnet
    You do the math.

        Well, I play a little bit of everything on this axe including more modern jazz (Scofield, Metheny, etc). Luna Athena with custom humbuckers wound by Terry Kuntz (Bug T) in Little Rock, Arkansas. Its a thinline construction rather than the traditional semi hollow construction and as such leans far more to the solid body end of the spectrum than hollow but I really like this guitar. Full review here.

          When I was playing jazz from the 30's-50's, these are what I was using...
          1964 super 400 CES-C

          Custom Shop Gibson ES-355 one-off from 1969

          Gibson CS 356F-59

              I don't (can't) play jazz, or much of anything else these days, but I still have a few relics laying around the place...

              Don't have the orange AF anymore, but the yellow and green guitars are still with me..

              Not a good headstock, but I kind of like the rest of it....

                  Nice guitars. I've found if you put the seymour duncan jazz in the neck of any nice guitar, you will have a killer jazz guitar! Even a BC Rich Bich or Gibson SG...
                  guitars : Gibson SG Special(jazz/jb),Gibson Diablo SG ,ESP M2 Maple ('59 / JB), Ibanez RG2570E Prestige , Alvarez AF90SCK
                  amps : '65 Fender Deluxe Reverb Re-Issue
                  pedals/efx : boss me-70 + boss DS-2 + boss mt-2

                  I will be looking for a nice high gain amp head in early August. Will trade anything in my sig except the M2.
                  I've been playing a lot of Jazz on my ESP through my Fender DRRI lately. How metal is that?

                          Jazz is music, not gear.

                          But I know what you mean.

                            I am planning to satinize this one with a scotchbrite pad...and maybe have the pickup rewound. My affordable jazz box.
