This is it! Keep saving and you'll know when to pounce!
I say Strat. I have both too. My first love was the LP. That was stolen by a Strat.
Do a poll. I love polls.
Ben, I'm betting the responses here will be largely skewed towards you getting a Strat
I have a bunch of Strats, but one Les Paul, but that one Les Paul is perfect for me and is an amazing guitar. Both guitars are great and iconic and very flexible guitars that can cover a ton of ground. Part of the fun is finding the guitar that works for you. I've been a Strat player since I was a teenager so I'm always thinking in those terms because I'm comfortable with it, but my Les Paul is a great guitar and I still sound like me when I play it and it can do things a Strat can't and visa versa.
What are you most comfortable playing now? Go find a shop and play a few of each type in a corner and get some perspectives on the type of guitar you're going to end up with.
Either way, I can't imagine anyone on here deserving a new guitar, a new dream guitar, more than you. I'm pretty sure you'll be happy either way and I'll be the first one to like your NGD post when you get your guitar
I'm a Strat guy but I also love the Gibson SG just about as much. I would be happy with either one. I guess it's just a matter of which you like best. Good luck
I've got both, you will wind up liking whatever you get because they are both great guitars.
The LP you're looking at is humbucker of course, so keep in mind the difference the 2 guitars (and their electronics) are noted for.
The Strat is cheaper, I play my Strat more than the LP.
If you get the 50's LP get the gold top, I wish I had gotten that over the 2019 60's model I got.
Yes get the gold top.
You just have to get the one you want now, the other will follow eventually,
I looked and Vintage.Relic was out of stock on the color wanting
If it will take more time for me to save for Gibson LP -Should I probably start towards that model first?
An S caster with quality noiseless pickups and blender wiring....you can have a wider variety of sounds...you can go from totally clean to more gain than god pretty convincingly plus it looks better and has better ergonomics BUT if you are in love with a particular shape lets say an LP..go with that cause at the end of the day if you dont see the guitar and wanna pick it up and play. it doesnt matter....
All you need is a Strat when it comes down to it. Rendering any Gibson a pointless piece of wood with wires attached.
I think Gibbos are overpriced, overrated, and beset with design flaws.
I'd go with the Strat, every time.
Your choice though. All the above is opinion.
Well this is Strat-Talk, and I’m StratSounds, so you know I’m gonna say get a Strat. Here’s a thought though. Why don’t you get the most versatile guitar on the planet and snag yourself an HSS Strat with a coil split option on the bridge humbucker? I’m a big fan and have two set up like that myself, best of both worlds!
I have one of those ordered. Hopefully it will be here in a few more weeks. Gibson had to make more
Meanwhile, if you have any music stores nearby, go spend some time with some guitars. Even play the unlikely ones, model you'd never thought you'd look at. In a worst case scenario they'll give you perspective, best case is that you find something unexpected.
For me, the SG is climbing the ladder, I have barely touched the other ones in more than a month. A year ago I didn't even like SG's, I thought they were ugly and weird.
I'm glad I have both. I've owned my Les Paul for 50 years, and it was my gigging guitar for a decade. It's a great guitar. But honestly, it has spent most of its time in the case for the past 35 years or so. Today I take the only two guitars I really need, a Clapton Stratocaster and a Telecaster.
If it were me, and I was guitarless, I would probably get the strat first. However, if you almost have enough for the LP, and the LP is your dream guitar, then I say save a little more and get the LP.
Ya ain't gonna be happy till you got both anyway so get the one that that makes you feel warm & fuzzy now
What are you playing now?
