unless you replace your singles with humbuckers...

I firmly believe that the kind of guitar you have will never limit your sound versatility.

Besides, did you hear my Strat sound clip? That does not sound remotely like a single-coil tone.

It's amazing what you can do with a Strat if you add one humbucker and play around with the amp settings. It's all in the amp settings.

I tried out a epiphone les paul standard today and I wasnt that impressed. I suppose I was on a cheapo randall valve amp at a low volume but even so. The bridge pickup seemed ok but the neck one was just so muddy. Too much bass. I also noticed It was hard to get to the higher frets whilst sitting down. Does this get easier when you stand up?
So I've got a few questions before I continue my quest of finding a good les paul
:

Are les pauls good for lead?
Can you play fast on them
Can you shred on them?

I hope gibson is a little better than the one I tried today!

my strat copy roars.... and sings....you couldnt seperate me and my fake with the jaws of life, but yeah...if you have a strat loaded with a humbucker, like mine, it sounds amazing. but still, i would like a LP style guitar too, just adds to options

There are many people who I've heard say that all LPs sound muddy on the neck pickup.

Have you stood up with it? Try it. My way of playing the upper frets might not be the same as yours, I have no problem with it standing or sitting.

Yes, why not?

I've never like Epi's much, while I do like my Gibby LP. However, remember that they're all basically the same shape, so reaching the upper frets will be a problem on the Gibson if it was a problem on the Epi.

I was just making a statement of verseitlity of the Strat,I have nothing against Les Pauls,or Tele's,hollowbodies. It would be cool that I could have all those guitars,then I wouldn't have to worry about which guitar I wanted to have for that sound.I was watching Styx on Dtv and seen Tommy Shaw have a different guitar for what seems like each song. How cool is that?
