I think that Im pretty much settled on a Fender Jazzmaster, but I figured I should try to get some new ideas just to make sure. Im looking for a guitar with a semi-bright tone that has fat cleans but can rock out a bit. I play shoegazing post-punk and some harder rock (think Slowdive, The Cure, and Dinosaur Jr). Think Im on the right track or should I be looking at something else?

Your on the right track

If you want bright with nice cleans, look for Alder or Ash bodied guitars with maple necks.

Cool! I dont suppose you know of a company that makes knockoff Jazzmasters with maple necks huh? I LOVE the feel of my MIM Strats neck, but I wouldnt mind going back to a roswood neck if I have to

maybe try danelectro but that may be a bit too bright for you.

I love the way Danos look, but nobody around me stock any, so Id be a bit hesitant to buy one. Could you point out any bands that use them? They seem pretty cheap, which is always a plus ;p
