What's your price range? I've got an Epi Casino that I paid $550 for and I couldn't be happier. I don't really play any jazz, but it sounds great with blues.
Listen to mah discs.

Really, I think that any of them make decent jazz and blues guitars. It's just a matter of what you want.

fender strats are the best for blues and jazz. ibanezes are more into hard rock and metal.

Well, I'd recommend a tube amp before you go and get a new guitar.

just choose whatever feels comfortable to you man, you can always change strings, pickups, picks, amps, or pedals and get whatever kind of tone you're looking for. People online can't tell you what you want. We can tell you what sounds like **** and if theres a way to fix it but we can't tell you what feels comfortable for you. Go to a music store and pick up a guitar and just play some blues and jazz or whatever you're looking for man. If you don't like the way it feels, or the wood used, find another guitar. It's whatever you like.

Well, as a proud owner of one, i'd reccommend you try any guitar from Ibanez's Artcore series. I love the feel and sound of my AF75

Try them all dammit. You're not gonna' be able to choose on a forum, go to a guitar sop, play a hell of a lot.

And for blues and jazz, maybe a Strat.

Depends on what kind of tone he wants, not to mention pickup output, etc. More jazz players DO use tube amps rather than solidstate amps.

Besides, he doesn't exactly come across as extremely knowledgable concerning what tone he's looking for, does he now? In which case most of the time a tube amp is exactly what the doctor ordered.

would a fender strat be good to use as a stage guitar for alternate tunings
like if you were playing kinda like a poast grunge style (distorion) i mean if you use the selector to put it on two so it wouldn't buzz

I dont recomend the strat for down tunings unless you fit it with heavier strings. The ibanez is good for alt tunings.

Good point, he probably should get a tube, although I love my solid state, it sounds as good as some tubes in its price range. I only suggested it because solid states don't overdrive at high levels like tubes, which is good if you want to play clean for a lot of people.
#31
Sure, but he also would wants play blues, and for that you'd definitely want a tube amp.

And well, sure, solidstate doesn't breakup... But it doesn't have the tube warmth either.

Fender is great for Blues, but Epiphone and Gibson are my favorite brands of guitars. I have a Squier Stratocaster (Squier is made by Fender) and it doesn't have a great sound to it, so my Epiphone SG sounds better than it at about everything, but the Squier is pretty good with Blues and the SG sounds better with Rock and Heavy Metal.

i don't like tube amps dude
and yes i do know what sound i want
and yes i can get that sound through a solid state
and i can make my solid state sound like a tube
exactly like a tube
but i don't like how that sounds
so i don't put it on that setting
my sound comes through the instrument
not the amp

Im not a retard

to the same sound as a fender

I'd say either a Fender strat or tele will work well for blues.
