If anyone needed an extra opinion...

Why the Gibson Les Paul is Better than the Fender Stratocaster...

And in the Strat's defence + final conclusions....

Opinions. Of course it is a Gibson forum and we all love our Gibbys, but how many great songs were recorded with a Strat or Tele or something else. I have a Strat, Tele. D-28, SG, and a Jazz Bass. Owned a few LP's but my BB King is so killer I don't know if I will ever get another LP.

Because les Paul's are better at sounding like les Paul's than strats are.

OMG..., apple and oranges, Tesla vs Hell Cat, Blond vs Brunettes, Waxed vs Bushy, Mac vs PC, Big feet vs Small feet, Hamburgers vs Hotdogs, its one of those beating a dead horse, middle school comment threads again??? Jeez... does a good mechanic use a wrench to screw in a screw or use a screwdriver? Use the proper tool for what the job needs. If the song calls for strat sound use a strat. If calls for a les paul use a les paul. Jeez

As I said in the Articles.

Strats are blue collar tools.

Nothing is better than anything else. Its an opinion. Man how many times to do we need to debate this BS. I've owned Gibson's and Fender's and both are fine instruments. Fender basses are pretty much the industry standard. Different tools for different things. What would Sultans Of Swing sound like on a LP and what would Black Dog sound like on a Strat? Different for sure. But remember or if you don't know the Stairway solo was a Tele.

I'll say this for Strats: you can't break a Strat. They're like baseball bats.

Jimi and Pete broke a few....
