    Love PRS. I have only played one that was my buddy's, but I loved it. It was super light also which is what I look for in a guitar. Strats aren't the lightest guitars but it just feels like they were molded for my hands when I play one.

    I have an Ibanez S470 which I bought years ago to play metal shredding stuff when I'm just messing around with sweep picking, pinch harmonics, etc and that is the lightest guitar I own, plus the super thin wizard neck makes it really fun to play.

    My favorite guitar I own is definitely my Mexican Strat. I got it when I was 12 years old ( now 26 ) and it's been my baby forever. Added 2 Seymour Duncan pickups (humbucker on the bridge) and it sounds great. I also love my Martin 00CXAE Grand Concert. The lightest and most playable acoustic I've ever held.

    Let's put the women and children to bed and go lookin' for dinner

      Yeah, I agree they are expensive, but the sound is excellent IMO. Fender's are alright..

        Ehhh..not with you on that one. Strats are kinda overrated to me, sound wise.

            My #1 guitar is my Mexican Strat. Its a fat Strat with only two knobs. One tone and one volume. Its the only Strat I've ever seen without three knobs.
            I put a Pearly Gates PU on the bridge so I get the benefit of a hot Humbucker and I still get that great single coil neck PU sound.

              You can make a Strat sound like most anything. You can't make a LP sound like a Strat.
              Strats are "feel" guitars. especially with a maple fingerboard. I don't like Rosewood on a Strat. Nothing is better for bending strings than maple.

                Yeah... Lp's are expensive "they have some wood in them" which give them their rich sound...Epi Lp's... I'm glad you said almost as good...almost only counts in horseshoes... no comparison and an insult to Gibson guitars ... imo.... rhythm may well be easier than playing lead...but I'm not sure its all that easy ..some people have no sence of rhythm at all and probably couldn't play a juice hard if their life depended on it .....anyhow I may be bias I owned and played a LP for ten years ....played rhythm buy the way and loved it ....




                I payed 500.00 for that LP in 75...and it was used, year old at the time

                        Guitarists who prefer a Strat over anything else:

                        Hendrix
                        SRV
                        Clapton (originally a Gibson guy who became a Strat man in the 60's)
                        David Gilmour of Pink Floyd
                        Eric Johnson

                        and your boy Johnny Mayer.


                        The Stratocaster helped define popular rock music today as we know it. Not hating on Gibson because I think they are great guitars, just not for me. Although I think the Gibson SG looks bad ***.

                          You have to develop calluses first. Then you can call yourself a bass player

                            Perfectly said MH. Couldn't agree more.

                            The Strat and the LP are both icons, but the part about the Strat being a "feel" guitar is perfectly explained.

                              I know. I don't HATE them, but I prefer GLP's.

                                I have calluses though! I'll just deal with it. I almost switched to nylon but it wouldn't sound the same.
