I know very little about jazz music, but i would like to learn some 50's jazz scales and a bit about what types of chords they used to use.
Any help appreciated.

Learn Major 7, Minor 7, and Dom 7 chord shapes for a start. Also, jazz players tend to think more about chord tones when soloing rather than thinking in scales.

Traynor YCV
Fender '68 Bassman
Jetter Gain Stage Red OD
MI Audio Crunch Box
Fulltone Choralflange
Fender Strat
Carvin 7 String

No such thing as jazz scales. You have the exact same scales as the rest of western music. It's not only notes that make up jazz.

Major scales and the modes mostly for scales, but in jazz you don't think about playing with a scale, you think as playing over each chord. But yeah for a start use the modes over each chord for example Minor 7 chord dorian or aeloian, Dom 7 mixolydian or blues, etc.

Thats not necessarily true considering there a bunch of "bebop scales", but these are mostly modified modes adding in chromatic tones and stuff.
