I am a sometime player of jazz guitar, and I wish to play more. I'm interested in getting a traditional jazz box with a great acoustic tone. I am looking for a no pickup or, at most, a floating pickup. No pickups built into the top. I like a rich tone where the notes ring distinctly even with chording. I am prepared to spend $4k-$5k. That seems to be the bottom to middle of the range for a custom maker -- Campelleone, Moll, Stadler and I am sure others -- offer something in that general area. Heritage makes jazz boxes in this range and less. I am not interested in Gibson. I have recently played their big boxes and was uniformly underwhelmed. I have played, and do not wish the obvious low cost alternatives: Hofners, Eastmans and Tacomas. I am interested in your recommendations for this guitar among the builders/manufactures mentioned as well as any others. I am not in a place that offers any of these guitars in readily accessible fashion, much less all of them. Or should I go for a 30s gibson L-7, the genesis of all of these guitars? Thanks.
