I like the sound I can get from a les Paul style guitar for that reason, and I need guitars that can function both in jazz (clean warm setting) and fusion or rock.

My question is, between the Fishman Abasi signatures, the Fishman open core classics, and any other suggestions that could compete with the versatility or blow them out of the water soundwise, what would be some recommendations?
What type of jazz tone are you seeking... For that modern Prog jazz tone (making assumption as you mentioned the abasi signature), the Fishman are great... I myself really like Bartolini's also.. I ask however, because all these tones are not the classic jazz tone however... I personally prefer these modern tones, and it seems what you are looking for also anyway. Have you tried making changes at the amp EQ level.
