I own a Gibson LP and I am planning on playing Mr. Brightside live in an assembly hall. It is kind of difficult to play the main riff on the LP since it is high on the neck, but I have become pretty good at it. However, my friend owns a Fender Strat and would let me borrow it for the concert. Though I am fairly confident i can play the song well on a LP, is it worth sacrificing the LP's tone (which is more like the song) for the security of the Strat?
Play whichever one you feel more comfortable. Les Paul and strat necks are different, and they have different scale lengths
The fact that this bothers you is a pretty good indicator that you're not ready for live performances.
have you played on it...because the pickups may really be different then your LP
i think i will just use my LP since i can play it practically perfectly, so I am fussing over nothing, and it sounds better on the LP too.
