Does anyone feel certain guitars sound better with effect pedals than other guitars would?

Ex: The Telecaster Thinline 72 I was running some pedals through sounded a lot better than a Epiphone Les Paul Custom and MIM Strat when I ran them through the same pedals. (Effects included Phaser, Flanger, Chorus, Tremolo)

it really depends on the guitar, i think my schecter sounds better with effects but the les paul has a better pickup that sounds more natural without the effects. Damn you EMGs

It mostly depends on the amp, but my thinline sounds good with effects. And 72 tele thinline FTW my friend. Its my fav guitar

In a word, no.

I think you may have understood the question wrong (as I did at first). He doesn't mean "do some guitars sound better once you put effects on them", he means "do some guitars sound good with effects while others don't". In which case, the answer is a pretty obvious yes. Some pickups sound better with some distortions. Reverb with cheap humbuckers gets really, really muddy, etc...

I know what he meant, and the answer is still no

I think teles sound amazing with effects, and a strat sounds better just guitar to amp

Yeah, I know what you mean. My Tele seems to take my Big Muff and Small Stone nicer than the PGM does. They both sound great with the TS though. I think certain effects just work more in harmony with the tonal qualities of certain guitars...it's kind of logical really.

Indeed. Doing further work, I found that Teles, ES-335's, PRS, and any knock-off with similar tonal qualities worked the best with said effects.

I think fenders sound beautiful with and without effects personally

But matt bellamy's mansons tele with the built in fuzz unit sounds epic
