I've got some Leo Kottke, Artie Traum, Al Dimeola, John McLaughlin, and Acoustic Alchemy albums. Who are some other acoustic jazz guitar players I need to hear?

I'd like to recommend Herb Ellis, Lenny Breau, Joe Pass, Jim Hall, Duke Robillard, Tony Quarrington ...

Yeah, I love Herb Ellis as well. One of my favorites guitar players ever (Wes Montgomery is #1 in my book).

I'm particularly looking to find some jazz artists who use 000, OM, or dreads. There's a hell-of-a-lot of hollow and semi-hollow body guitarists, but I can only think of maybe ten jazz players who use flat-tops.

There's Duck Baker, Al DiMeola, John McLaughlin (these two along with Paco DeLucia...Friday Night in San Francisco)...Lenny Breau was already mentioned but he deserves to be mentioned many more times.  He was an absolute MONSTER!

I saw John Jorgenson Quintet in concert this week. A gypsy jazz guitarist in the Django tradition. They were fabulous. Django fans should pay attention to this guy. He played a Gitane and talked a bit about the construction of his guitar, and his rhythm player's guitar and how they were different. He had a fiddle player named Stephan Dudash who was very, very good. (And I had the privilege of seeing Stephane Grappelli perform twice before he passed.) Dudash is a serious student of Grappelli's style.

Has anybody here played a Gitane? I've been thinking about getting one of these but there's quite a few different models.

Django has been mentioned. So was Lenny Breau.

In the post-Django category: Angelo Debarre, Biréli Lagrène

Some others: Howard Alden, Bill Frisell (acoustic AND electric), Ralph Towners, Joe Pass (he did not only play electric), Sylvain Provost, Art Johnson, Russell Malone, Bucky Pizzarelli, James Chirillo, Eddie Lang

And just to name a few great players of electric/acoustic: Jim Hall, Kenny Burrell, Tal Farlow, Wes Montgomery, Charlie Christian, Slim Gaillard

And I forgot Tony Rice. He came from bluegrass but he has played some awesome acoustic jazz for years as well (with David Grisman and on his own).

agreed. you named some giants.
Joe Pass was huge. Jim Hall did some great work
 I am a huge Angelo Debarre fan. I met him a couple of years ago in Ann Arbor. If you like this guy, check out John Jorgenson. both wonderful artists.

Let's add another one in the gypsy swing style. His name is Jimmy Rosenberg.

Rosenberg bio

You see him play in 1990 when he was still just a kid. He's the one on the right.

and here he is more recently:

One of my favorites is Martin Taylor (hey with a name like that you have to be a good guitar player)

http://www.martintaylor.com/

Martin was Stephane Grapelli's guitarist for several years

Several albums produced by Steve Howe (Yes)

Great Duet CD with David Grisman on vintage instruments.   A real education for gearheads.
http://www.acousticdisc.com/acd_html/acd18.html

Check out this rendition of Ol' Man River solo.   I have no idea how he does it.

Just a note about Martin Taylor:  The cd with the "Ol' Man River" cut referenced above is available on e-music for those who subscribe to that on-line music source.  It's the "Tribute to Art Tatum" cd.  I sampled it and it is, indeed, very, very tasteful.  I'll be downloading it as well as a couple of other Martin Taylor offerings.
