My jazz box is really quite beautiful--clear blond maple top, with mahogany body, neck and rosewood fretboard. Two Gibson-style dual coil pups, and off we go! Less than 300 with a great hard shell case...

I'm only kidding, I can see myself playing a semi-hollow one day for sure, just for extra feedback potential during sliding.

As I said, I don't own one yet, but I've played (more than) a few. Bending caused every bridge to fall off! no! They mostly stayed put, but the earth moved.

What your friend was probably worried about is that the bridge, like that of a violin, might not be glued down and therefore might move. It's not going to move when it's tuned up.

>do u finger pick with or without picks?

I fingerpick with fingernails, no picks. Most of what I do is chord (rhythm) accompaniment for choir in church. The other instruments are piano, Yamaha Clavinova (a very good sampling keyboard, which, BTW, has a nice-sounding "crunch guitar" model), percussion, and bass. Four or five vocalists. In that mess, fingerpicking can get lost, but it works sometimes in instrumetal breaks, and other times when I am accompaning a soloist.

That's what I would figure... I'd just like to confirm it with someone who actually plays one. I hope Grady chimes into this thread.

Grady's got an Epi Joe Pass. Haven't heard him mention it lately. I've heard him play some terrific stuff on it, and I'm pretty sure Grady bent plenty on it.

Sorry for this temp. hijacking of your post, but I've got a question on the Epi Joe Pass. I've been eyeing a jazz box and that particular guitar for a while now. I know jazzers will frown on this question but whats the deal with the bridge... I'm leaning more towards a jazzed blues with my electric playing but don't want to stray from the string bending it took me years to perfect (in my head anyway). Can the bridge handle the bends or is that a huge negative on that style bridge? My buddies got a Joe Pass that I noodled around on a couple of years ago before I ever considered getting one and while I was playing he said, "don't bend the strings, the bidge can't handle it!". The guitar was brand new and he could have just been being anal about it, but I've been meaning to ask someone about that for a while.

Also, how does the box sound through a 1 X 15"?

I play an ES-333 through a Blues Deluxe Reissue 1 X 12" and it nails my dream tone but I was wondering about the 15" speakers with a jazz guitar.

Thanks,
Sonny
