Blues scale would be best for improvising, pentatonic could work, you could even give mixolydian a shot.

Before anyone bites your head off....

There are no such things as Jazz scales. Learn your scale shapes on the guitar(Ionian to Locrian and there's more...) then apply them to the progression of the song.

Also Keep listening to jazz songs and try to emulate what you hear.

edit1:

Since you're interested in shred, it helps to streamline your scale shapes. I can't tell you how because they're your hands, but find the most economic way to play scales down the fretboard.

It's not that simple. For playing jazz, learn about scales, chords, modes and progressions - and how they function together. Listen to jazz and try playing few jazz songs. Maybe get a jazz guitar teacher?
