Re: guitar for metal and jazz
Go for an RG370, or any guitar with the edge zero 2. It has an awesome trem, pretty high output humbuckers, and is generally pretty good. I have the same guitar, and it's pretty awesome, aside from the singlecoil. Neck's kinda small, but then i've huge hands. Amazing for metal, rock, jazz, blues, and pretty much everything except country. If not that, go for a used s series, preferably the ones after 2010, cause they're 24 fretters, and that's just awesome.
You want the mahogany body, but at your age, unless you have some big-ass tube amp, you probably wont be able to tell the difference for a few years.
double lockers arent really that hard, once you get the hang of them. Anyway, there's not much to learn in using a trem- Dives, pullups, flutter, vibrato. End of story. Setting one up, is a different matter, though it's easy once you learn to do it.
And i just HAVE to ask: why on earth would a 13 year old play jazz?? I'm also 13, and i just CANNOT stand it!!!!
Come to think of it, no one i know likes jazz..........
