Blues? My guitar done left me.
I also say semi hollow body.
Personally my es 339 really does the trick nicely.
I can't believe the les paul only got 10 votes though!
also , the Squier Stratocaster of Jack Pearson
Take your pick
This is all I need for any Blues gig.......or any other gig for that matter. The Silvertone 1446 Is the most versatile electric guitar ever made and I’ve owned them all.
For Acoustic Robert Johnson blues, a ladder braced Gibson can not be beat like an LG-0, LG-1, or a B-15 (maybe by a pre Harmony Stella). Excellent for Blues, but not much good for any thing else but country. As far as electric goes, Gibson has a slight edge, but the old Epiphone Wilshire had an amazing sound along with Johnny Winters Firebird V. Billy Gibbons loves his old 2 PU white Alamo fiesta. I didn't love mine.

I have a 339 too. Great little underappreciated guitars. I nominated my P90 Goldtop though. That guitar just brings it
I own a circa 1961 Airline with painted fretmarkers. I paid $30 for it. It’s nasty, bluesy, cheap and about as authentic sounding as you can get.
I also own a beautiful Martin which has a real hard time understanding delta blues.
I think anything that inspires--►YOU , can be a blues guitar. I've used all mentioned here over the years, except a Gretsch . 1983 had a 1965 Reverse Firebird III -2 P90'S , when vintage guitars were under $400
around NE Ohio...those were the days.
I've had ES 330, 335, 345, 2 Epi Sheratons...'98 Epiphone current is posted that I modified with varitone ...yes it does get the "sneaky" tone Freddie , BB , ETC,
play on , the road is long, enjoy the ride
Im under the belief that you can play blues on anything. Otis rush played blues on a jaguar magic slim on a jazzmaster his entire career. So it really doesn't matter just as long as it's soulful. But when i think of a blues guitar for the sake of the question it is a es 335 345 or 355. Freddy king, Jimmy Rodgers, Eddie taylor, bb king, luther allison John Lee hooker Otis rush, Jimmy Johnston, Jimmy Dawkins e.t.c e.t.c all played one..... if it isn't a 335 it's a stratocaster. In my opinion you gotta have both. With a 4x10 tweed bassman or super reverb.
Stratocaster and ES-335
Gibson ES 355. There‘s something about the look of it that screams classy blues to me. The mother of pearl inlays, ebony fretboard, gold hardware, bigsby...it‘s just decked out to the nines in glam. It has an elegant and classy look and has that powerful humbucker PAF tone. Close second is a Strat.
This is true. You can really play blues on all the classic electric guitars all though I will say it does not sound good to my ears on metal style guitars with extremely hot pickups like EMG‘s. Those type of pickups are really meant for distortion and sound dull and lifeless when played clean. Otherwise you can really use anything and it‘ll sound great. All the guitars Gibson, Fender, PRS have ever created and all the companies that have copied them.
And you call yourself, "Fenderguy"? Lol
