    "Thin/wimpy", Strats, y'say? I've never had that problem with Strats. If you're expecting them to have as much output and ballz as your Gibsons, well, keep hoping. Strats are so easy to dial in. How can you not get a good sound from them? A Jazzmaster won't get you any closer. They're cool guitars in their own right, but have a few built-in peccadillos, starting with the tremelos and ending with the electronics. They don't come with big frets/necks, but you never know what's out there. You could always put one together and specify neck shape and fret size, but that would prolly get expensive. I would try out one locally and see if it's for you. Or, learn how to get a big sound from your Strats and save some money.

    Compared to an LP and SG, the strat going to sound more airy, just due to the pickup setup. You could always look at some blade or stacked pickups for more OOMPH if you want it.

    I have always wanted a Jazzmaster but knew about the issues with the bridge and tremolo design. Mastery seems to have solved those issues with their replacement bridge and tremolo. A while back, I had one made locally and I, ultimately, ended up sending it back because the neck was not to my liking. A friend of mine used to work for Bilt guitars and suggested that I reach out to them. They are making me a hollowbody Jazzmaster (called a Zaftig) with the Mastery bridge & tremolo, plus Lollar Regal pickups and they are carving the neck to match my American Standard Strat neck which is the profile that I prefer. Price is around $2,500 for a completely handmade guitar to my specs. I think that is a very fair price. The guitar is a couple of weeks away from being done. I will post picks when it gets in. Here is a picture of one from their website.

    Don't laugh, but go check out a Squier Classic Vibe Jazzmaster. Shockingly good for the asking price, and perfect for a JM noob. Most people love the way the offsets hang on you, but their pickups, electronics packages and trems are either loved or, um ... not loved. The Squier will let you figure out in which camp you fall for a fraction of the investment.
