    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.
    Get well soon 80.

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