I have been into rock and metal for a while.. every since I bought my B.C. Rich Warlock.. But, I just recently joined a Jazz band, and am looking for a guitar with more clean crisp tone. Anyone have any suggestions for a good Jazz sounding guitar for around 800-1000$ ? Im open to any brand, but Ill probably go to a shop and play one first.

You could try the Epiphone Dot for about $400, and replace the pick ups with your remaining cash. You're better off looking yourself though that way you won't be dissappointed.

not the dot, you're going to need a full hollowbody. I would suggest an ES-175 or copy, or a Washburn J3 or J5.

Schecter C-1 Classics are nice. I've never actually played a BC Rich Warlock but from what I've heard it can probably play rock and metal better than a BC Rich Warlock. Maybe not metal but oh well

Noo... I have had my my Warlock for about 3 years. And I have been saving for about 6 months and working every hour I can for this new guitar.

solid state is fine for what your doing...


here are my two reccomendations depending on what your looking for.
Epiphone Elitist Dot-1200 New


Yamaha AEX1500 1396 New


The epiphone will be the more versitile but the Yamaha is an incredible instrument.
This thread is making me want one...

New they're a little above your price range but if you can find one used they might just sit right in it...
They're worth it.

I used to have an epiphone dot.

It was pretty nice. But not really my type of guitar, traded it in with a bc rich and an ibanez and then another 500 bucks and got my acoustic.

Its got a nice sound though, theirs probally better.

How about the Ibanez Artcore? They're pretty inexpensive aswell.

Well, he doesn't NEED a full hollow, but non-Elitist DOTs just suck. So why get one?

I own this! But I can't tell you if it's good for jazz as I haven't tried that yet. Otherwise I'm overly happy with it, hehe. good luck on your decision.

The SZ should do pretty well. Very nice, full tone (think LP), and the neck pickup sounds great clean. I'm no jazz player though, so...

the guitarist and bassist in the jazz band play strats...i think they belong to the school though, they match the black and white theme of the whole band

that is like SO racist - i am appalled!

it's pretty cool though that everyone in the band is wearing black, i'm not sure if every jazz band does, but this particular one has not only musical talent, but a sense of matching style

^Yes, but humbuckers are generally better for jazz because jazz generally has a very warm sound wich a humbuckers would do better than single coils.
I agree that you should get a Hollowbody.
