Wondering if more people play rock on a jazzmaster than jazz.

    Just like the Jazzmaster is a 'state of guitar', requiring no particular playing style...

    I think that's a pretty uncontroversial "yes". However, a Jazzmaster can work great as a jazz guitar. Sure, it looks, works and sounds different (which is part of the point vs. more typical [read: Gibson] jazz guitars), but it can still sound great in that context (the other part of the point).

    Nels Cline, anyone? While he works across a variety of genres, he still got his start playing jazz, albeit more in the free vein. I believe his last solo album was a double album of jazz instrumentals on Blue Note. Not to mention recent collaborations with Julian Lage.
