Are there any professional Jazz players out there who have found a suitable profile for a high end arch top guitar? I just purchased a Woody Phifer signature series and hope to find a good profile to play it through.
Check the Rig Exchange for Polytone. Also, you might try the various acoustic rigs that are floating about. In my experience, you need to use your own ear. I've not had good luck trying rigs that others like, other than the Morgan AC20
Well, I´m not a professional jazz player, but you might check these ones out.
Found them in Rig Exchange. Might need a little tweaking
I keep them in my KPA for "guests" in my recording studio ... You´ll never know

Maybe if you ask Pat Metheny nicely he'll send you on his
I have an excellent rig for my hollow Jazz box , check ' boogie on spring' on rig exchange.
Sent a private message to me and I'll send a tweaked version of this one , made specially for me L5 copy.
Yep , fount my rig
The gain course and definition are your best friends here , super warm boogie profiles, home made with the bassiest and coolest little bad ass combo I had a few years ago.
Will make your arch top sing like a bird
example track with the boogie & archtop ( double stops and runs ) :
Here is another track wih my Archtop and that boogie JB profile ( that's the only profile used on this track except the bass one) in a more latin mood, with a tad of breakup on the gain.
Absolutely beautiful guitar!
