No doubt they are all beautiful, since all are still made in the US.

I guess I am currently partial to PRS works, although I wonder what will happen when Paul finally decides to retire.

God bless ALL American made guitars. God knows pretty much EVERYONE longs for them, worldwide.

The les Paul is the biggie here, with the fender strat running a close second
Link Posted: 4/15/2016 11:16:29 PM EST
I voted Strat simply because it's my personal preference and my favorite songs tend to be played with Strats.

But I wouldn't argue with anyone who voted for a LP. I have a couple of those for the times I'm in a mood for that sound.
Link Posted: 4/15/2016 11:16:35 PM EST
Strat or Les Paul, depending on what you're doing and how you play, If you want to sit on a stool and play then you want the strat. Les Paul is not comfortable to do that with. Seems awkward to me. I've got both here and I'll pick the strat up 95% of the time but I love the action and the sound of the LP.

Depends on what kind of music you are playing.

Or the Esquire. Both are far more unforgiving to a sloppy player than a Strat, though. God knows I need all the help I can get!

Listen to Gilmour's solo at the end of Fat Old Sun and you'll change your mind. Especially the "Live in Gdansk" version. Makes the hair on my arms stand up...

Or the famed Nocaster. Indeed, sometimes the first pull is the best.

Link Posted: 4/15/2016 11:30:38 PM EST
Just for the sake of mental masturbation, the original PRS Custom 24 attempted to "split the significant difference" between the Fender scale length and the Gibson scale length, and the playability characteristics and feel of both. Yes, they have traditionally been way overpriced, and I have little political love for the State of Maryland, but they are mostly made all by hand, here on the East Coast of the U.S.

The very best playing "Les Paul" I ever had the pleasure of encountering was a Heritage H150, made in the ORIGINAL Gibson factory in Kalamazoo. I still regret selling that beauty, some decades later. Concurrent with that would be my first PRS, an original Singlecut Trem.

I voted Les Paul. I have one copy I built myself. I have Strats and strat copies. ESP, Ibanez, Kramer, Jackson, Dean. I have an equal number of Explorers.... One Gibson, Washburn A-20, 2 Deans, 2 Mockingbirds. I would say the Explorer is the definitive rock guitar.....

Not surprising.

I voted Les Paul even though I personally like my Fender Stratocasters better as far as sound goes. For playing I love my Gibson LP....I just wish it had P90's in it.

It's either the Les Paul or the Strat. I guess I lean toward the Les Paul.

The question wasn't "was used by a couple of guys to great effect", now was it?
You do know what "quintessential" means, right?

Well, for true JAPAN made RGs and the like, true, most US guitar playing dudes have no idea what a true Wizard Prestige neck is, but I figured that would just confuse things too much.

I can't play the things. I own clones of a strat, baby strat, and a bass.
No talent at all.

I have been trying to find kids who want to learn to loan/give them to. No joy.
But I'll keep my tobacco sunburst Squier Strat. Too pretty.


ETA: I have actually given two away, and started a monster. Cool.

Out of the ones listed I'll say Strat, but I'm another Ibanez RG guy. All of mine are '88-89 RG560s and a 550.

Literally took five mine decide between the Strat and the Lea Paul. Turns out argon is torn as I am. Just brought the poll to a tie. 51-51 That's said, I picked the lp. Because I play blues and I play my stray way more than my les Paul. But, been playing my Tele a lot too... Really a tough choice. Need more wine.

No, I know what it means and you're right, the tele isn't really. Just my favorite because of the sound that it makes.

Or unless you have an s1. The tone goes from Tele twang to lp grit and punch in the press of a button. Still keep a the playability of the Tele.

In that case, I am right behind you. I love a Tele.
Especially when Waylon plays it.
