Not the bunny, right?
For my style of playing Strat's controls get in the way, so I have to say LPs and SGs are better (for me), but Strats are more durable, modifiable, and repairable.
Leave it to California…
A Stratocaster is better than a Les Paul because? you physically have to break a strat...les pauls break on their own....
He means the bunny, he’s a mean guy.
I’ll see ya , and raise ya .
Aerodyne does have a belly cut doesn't it?
I have posted this a lot. Most of you have seen it. For those who have not...
Just before straplocks were available, my carelessness resulted in an injury to my then 4 year old used Les Paul in 1977. Not once, but twice (on separate occasions) the strap came undone, resulting in the headstock hitting a hard floor tuners hitting first. I was a dopey 16-year-old.
The second time left a mark. Much like an earthquake fault, the wood grain shifted causing a strip of finish to shed, just like a can opener was dragged down the middle. Tectonic plate separation on a micro scale.
The angle at which the Les Paul above neck strap button is mounted also makes for easier accidental disengagement.
How the 1973 Lester survived that is beyond me. The volute maybe? It plays great and stays in tune quite well
No! Not the bunny.
I'm not 100% on the back but certainly the front has a bound edge.
I'm not sure.
I've loved Strats since I was 12 years old. I am now 62 and got my first Les Paul just last year. Comparing a Strat to a LP is like comparing a circular saw to a jig saw. True they are both used for cutting wood but, if you need one, the other simply will not do.
@Stratafied is a trouble maker.
Do you really think this is a legitimate question? Personally I am not a fan of most Gibson guitars but that is just my personal preference and I have owned enough Gibson guitars for sure and even liked some like my BluesHawk and SG even the LP's I had sounded great but I just never really liked the feel of them. I like a thinner neck. That said I know a lot of guitarist that would own nothing else so it just depends on the person but nobody can truthfully say a Strat is better than a Les Paul.
My Strat is better because it's three feet away instead of six.
Yep It's a real Les Paul Custom from 1962 with rare Ebony block trem.
Not natively. Intonation issues mid neck on any guitar depend largely on your action height.
