Archtop Jazz & Semi-Hollow Guitars

Jazz Guitars (aka Archtops) are popular with blues and jazz players and sales expanded as a result of the invention of amplification which increased the volume for big band players of the day. Jazz guitars tend to be steel-strung (players often prefer flatwound strings), have a soundbox, arched top, f-holes, floating bridge and have one or two humbucking pick-ups. For jazz guitar students and players wanting to know more about Jazz Guitars, The History Of Jazz Guitar video is a great place to start. By the 1950's and 60's, companies like Gretsch, Hofner and Rickenbacker were making thinner bodied semi-hollow electric guitars and the like of Chet Atkins, Duane Eddy, Eddie Cochran and George Harrison played them. As well as Jazz and Semi's, we sell Stratocasters, Telecasters, Jaguar & Jazzmasters, Mustang & Duo Sonics, Classic Rock Guitars, Heavy Metal & Pointys, PRS Custom 24 & 22, Gretsch Electromatics, 7 8 & 12 String Electrics and lots of American Made Made Guitars.
