1 Jukka 5 months ago Spartanman already started a thread about jazz guitars, but that seems to focus more on electric guitars.Piano teacher of my daughter asked me to join their jazz group to play guitar. But they are playing acoustic and would like to have also acoustic guitar (Freddie Green style). I have used my Martin HD28, but I have started look for acoustic archtops. (Just when I thought that I do not need more guitars). Partly because of the looks, but also for something more mid range emphasized sound that would cut through the band.Gretsch G100 Synchromatic looks nice, as well as G9555 New Yorker. Then there are Epiphone Masterbilt series guitars. Loar has also some affordable archtops. There seems to be often also some old 50-60 archtops (Harmony) for sale at decent price. But I don't know anything about these guitars, so any advice appreciated.
