The sound that we associate with acoustic jazz was recorded on plywood instruments with terrible mics. Until about the seventies then it was really good instruments with terrible mics. For every recording of a $20,000 instrument recorded in the latest hi-tech studio there is live recording of someone playing a cheap instrument that sounds just as good. My suggestion is to find an instrument that YOU like the sound and the feel of. I have played very high quality instruments that did not sound or feel as good for jazz as a $2,000 factory instrument(a pfeitchner).
