I'm looking for a guitar that can get a good grunge style distortion out if it, but also great clean sound. If I had to choose, I'd say the clean sound is more important to me. Right now the Jaguar single coil is on the top of my list. Any others I should look at?

You need to change your amp before you change your guitar, at the minute your amp is the weak link in your tone.

fender frontman amps have very nice clean channels, so i would have to disagree with you there.

Budget definitely helps, if you're wanting a primarily clean-voiced guitar I would look at single coiled Fenders, HSS guitars, or something with a Seymour Duncan '59 or similar in the bridge. The '59 would allow you to get the clean sound you're after with a little breakup when you dig into it

No change of guitar is going to get a "grunge style distortion" though is it?

Personally I'm none too fond of the Frontman's clean channel either but that's just preference.

Under $1000. About the amp suggestion...I agree that the clean channel is pretty nice.

flux'd can you send me a link to the pickup you described? Do you think it would be better to just change the pickups on my existing guitar? It feels great, I'm just looking for better tonal possibilities.
