Gibson ES 135 Excellent! - $1200 (LI NY Suffolk Cty.)
P90's with an extra pair of P100's.
Although the 135 is a pretty versitile instrument as it is, I've found it to work well with Jazz music. The ES-135 is a semi-hollow body guitar with more thick tone than say, a solid body, but less feedback than a hollowbody- useful if you play louder music. The 135 came with the standard with Gibson P100 Humbuckers.
Plugging though my Fender Super Sonic with the treble slightly rolled off, I can get many, many versitile jazz tones easily worth working for.
Also, some D'Addario Chromes Flatwound .11's (Which is what I have one mine) make a great turnout for the "Jazz Box." Overall, the ES-135 is great for jazz guitarist of all kinds, but if you are looking for a deep, thick, yet clear tone.
But for the people whom want a cleaner, brittler (In a good way) sound, or who look into fusion such as John Scofield or others where they use multiple effects in a louder situation, this is a great guitar to have for that especially with the P 90's I added.
