Cool

I really like Fenders, I own a Fender Jazz Bass, but I think Gibsons are better. I don't know much about Epiphones.

Well, I just bought a Fender GA-45SCE last week. It's an awesome guitar. I was going to buy a lower end Taylor, but couldn't afford it. I'm positive I made the right choice.

I am not a big fan of Les Pauls. Everybody has them it seems and they are too heavy for me. It hurts my shoulder. I am not a big fan of the way it is strung either, I like string through bodies. My ideal guitars on stage would be this:

Gibson SG Supreme '57 (midnight blue burst) for crunchy stuff

Fender American Deluxe Telecaster (or Tele Plus) for brighter, warmer stuff

I don't think there is a prettier guitar than a Tele Plus. Bounded top, contoured body, abalone inlays, chrome logo, 2 lipstick pickups, transparent color (whichever you like)..... ohhh very nice.

My first guitar was an Epi acoustic-AJ10-the cheapest Epi you can find-that thing is better than my former guitar teachers $900 Martin. It completely kicks butt. The action is sweet, the tone is sweet...wow, it is still my favorite ax.

So you might have guessed, I am an Epiphone/Gibson freak- the only difference is the price tag, and Epi's are not quite as well made as Gibsons.

Though I would not mind a Fender.

Les Pauls just don't feel right to me. The strings on all the ones i've played are REALLY close together and the action is pretty high. And to palm mute on a suspended bridge just like totally messes with my head. I really like Fender Jaguars and Toranados. Good alt rock, emo, punk sounding guitars that give you that higher end distorted sound instead of lower growling.

you realize that this is all preference and that oyu have to go out and decide for yourself what you like best.
Personally I like Gibson/Epiphone but I only have the money for an Epiphone

Lightbulb hmmmm....

I am a les paul man. i don't really care if it is Epiphone or Gibson.

i have played Gibsons that sucked so bad i wouldn't use it if you gave it to me

I own a Tradition Michael Batio Les Paul style guitar (never heard of it? me either) that cost me $200. the pickups are getting replaced cause they feedback a lot but it plays in perfect tune the action is awesome. only downside? it is gold fleck. i hate gold. a lot but it sounded and played to good. and for $200 dollar. wow!

as for Fenders....i wouldn't but a fender electric for anything. i think that if there was guitar playing in Hades you would be forced to play a fender....and all you would be allowed to play is the intro to Jesus Freak. :ktongue:

seriously the only fender i ever liked was the Blink 182 model with 1 pick up. lol

only thing fender does good are their acoustics... good guitars for the price. and their Acoustisonic amps those are amazing.

Acoustic guitar: Takamine all the way!!!!

I have to agree. I have a DeArmand by guild for an electric (double sale and lack of $$$) but it can't seem to reach the Les Paul. I know your going "who has $$ for that" but my friend has a SRV Strat and another has a Hendrix Strat but they aren't close to a Les Paul. I think it really depends on what you want to play too, if you want blues or jazz i'd say go witha Strat but i like rock
to soft metal and i think the gibson guitars will be better for that.
P.s. Thanks for the history

Oh yeah, I wanted to say more. I love the crunch I get through my Vox with my 'Lp' The fender is a diferent guitar and the neck is amazing for barre chords and slides. the single coil sound is just a differrent animal too.

I'm a Fender Strat guy. I believe that single coils sound better with effects, the fretboard radius is comfortable in my hand, whammy bar!!!, and Jimi, SRV, Ronnie Earl, and many toneful players play them.
Lea Paul's do crunch HARD, but the Strat has nice distortion tones when effected. As usual, preference plays the largest part in the mind of the musician

Les Pauls also have more character. They vary from style to style.Strats always seem the same to me.

I would have to say Gibson. I have a 1959 Gibson J50 and it rocks. That thing stays in tune extremely well.
