I have an American Strat HSS but would like a better guitar for playing Jazz
So far I've been getting by using the last position in the S-1 switching system which combines the mid and neck pickup in series so that it almost sounds like a humbucker, but it still can't get a real legit jazz tone

I am, however, on a budget
Do you think either of these guitars would be a good idea?

If you have any better suggestions, feel free to put them out there
(Nothing above $500, below $400 is ideal)

This guitar is going to have one job, and that's getting that nice dark jazz tone

epiphone dot basically a gibson es-335 but in ur price range
