I made a thread about this yesterday but all people did was argue and not answer me.

So what should i start learning? What are some good jazz guitarists to listen to?

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who aren't close-minded morons.

Go to your music store and find some Jazz theory books.

Come on guys don't immediately throw him into the modern stuff, go out and listen to Jim Hall, Wes Montgomery, grant Green, George Benson, Ted Greene, Kenny Burrell, John Scofiled, Django Reinhardt, Tal Farlow, Pat Martino, and Joe Pass.
As for non-guitarists John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, McCoy Tyner, Joe Henderson, Sonny Rollins, Woody Shaw, Rashaan Roland Kirk, King Curtis, Bill Evans, Duke Ellington, Chet Baker, Thelonious Monk, Wynton Kelly, Art Blakey, Herbie Hancock(modern depending on what you listen to), Lester Young and anyone else who floats your boat.

Modern Guys if wanted: John Abercrombie, Pat Metheny, Mike Stern, Kenny Wheeler, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Chris Bergson(somewhat bluesy), possibly Spyro Gyra, and Eric Alexander who kicks ass.

I know this is a long list of people but they're worth listening too.

Well, probably THE most important important jazz progression is the ii-V-I.
Practice over that and then do some more.

You can start out playing it completely diatonically (ie using just all the notes
in the key). If you can come up with interesting solos that way, you can start
moving on to scale substitions that have interesting properties over some of
the chords. With that little progression there's a lot you can start off with, study
and learn about jazz.

Very important that you listen to as much jazz as you can

and if you want to be serious in learning, I really recommend private instruction.
