^ agreed.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

But srsly, it totally depends on the genre.

they both contrast, but get a strat because they're better than tele's in just about every conceivable way.

Congratulations on sealing your reputation as a complete eejit.


OP, a Tele is a more contrasting tone to a Les Paul, while the Strat has a more different feel.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

I would agree whole heartedly with this post

Tele is pretty much the complete opposite sound with a much different feel, while strat is complete opposite feel with much different sound. If your into Bluesy classic rock/blues/hard rock, then get the strat, If your into, Indie/punk/any type of pop/Rolling Stones type classic rock then get the Tele. Now, the Tele can play the bluesy classic rock/blues/hard rock very well, as the strat can play the indie/punk/pop/Twang Rock very well, but, each has its own strong points. I assume you are asking because you are thinking of buying one?

The thing is, in a band like chickenfoot, think of the JSX as a submarine and the Marshall as a plane. No matter how good the submarine is, it might be the perfect submarine, if you need a plane, a submarine ain't gonna do it for you.

Yeah... If you think about it this way.

An LP is a set neck, uncontoured, carved top, 2 humbucker hardtail guitar, with a 24.75 (or thereabouts) scale length.
A Strat is a Bolt on neck, countoured, flat top, 3 single coil vibrato equipped guitar, with a 25.5" scale length.

about as different as guitars can get.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
