So i have my beloved mexican Fender Strat that i've had for a couple of years now, and it's extremely versitile, but i am now looking for a slightly warmer guitar with maybe a humbucker or two to help with more distorted tones

I have been looking at the Fender Jazzmaster Re-issue and the faded Gibson Flying V.

Could anybody give me any info about these two guitars, and if anyone could recommened me some more i would be greatful

BTW, my budget is around £500 give or take. And a have a Laney VC30 amp. I play modern rock, so Foo fighters, Feeder, Oasis, Smashing Pumpkins etc

Thanks guys.

Epiphone elitist?

don't get the flying V!

even though it says Gibson on it, it's a low end one and it doesn't sound that great. i would suggest something like an epiphone dot or an epiphone sheraton. they resonate really nicely and sound warm and fat with overdrive

I hear the new reissue Jazzmasters are brighter, like a strat. So i'm wondering if i should go for something else, an SG maybe? Ad i'll look into the 335. But i like moving about the stage a lot, just wondering if the large body would hinder me doing this.

the japan jazzmasters are, because they don't use the proper pickups, they use strat-like pickups. if you get an american one, or change out the pups on a jap, you'll have the real warm jazzmaster tone.

The latest reissues are fairly accurate to the old Jazzmasters; the older ones had strat pickups in Jazzmaster-sized enclosings. I would recommend the Jazzmaster, it's a very nice guitar.

powerhouse strats have a lot more punch than the MIM standard but i would reccomend a real old used SG they have incredible versatile tone.
