i like fender a lot, but for me, nothing screams rock n roll louder than a Gibson Les Paul Cherryburst plugged to a marshall stack, so i'd say Gibson :P

Which one do you think is better? I have both but I personally like my fender more.

Neither is better, obviously. They're different.

Always up for some C4C, been compared to Frank Turner, The Cure's Robert Smith and Bruce Springsteen so check out my stuff if you like the sound of that

Depends. I have a strat, an LP and a tele. All of them are amazing guitars. I love my strat and my LP the same.

Choosing between Fender and Gibson is like choosing between a penis and testicles, I'd rather have both.

Gibson takes the cake for me. It just seems to have a bigger and bolder sound.
Some people just wanna watch the world burn. Wanna join me when I take my turn to pour the gas, light the match, see your world flip upside down and drop until it's inside out?

And a bigger price tag :/

Despite my strat costing double what my LP did

Thats actually a really good deal unless it was a low end Gibson. My Epiphone was $1,000. I'd take a high end epiphone over a low end Gibson any day of the week.

Nah. The Gibson will nearly always be better. Or in my experience. All the studios I've played I have much preferred over the Epi Les Pauls. But that's an opinion of mine and we could be here all night bitching about it and I cannot be arsed, so accept that it's my opinion and I'll accept that you would prefer a high end epi.

My Fender Strat is my #1, I just find I get more of a range of sounds than out of it than I do my Gibson LP.

Plus I have had issues with the switch, tuning pegs and finish on my LP yet I have never had an issue with my Fender.

Fender Stratocaster
Silvertone 1448L

Fender Blues Jr.

Stratocasters and Telecasters are much more versatile than LPs, but are about the same as 335s and SGs. This comes from a person who has actually played none of them.

I want to say PRS, but I've never had the pleasure to play one.

But on topic... both companies make good guitars. It just happens that Fender has better quality control than Gibson, and is more reasonably priced. They also make solid amps, while the only amps Gibson puts out are these measly things meant for historical nostalgia (and thats not very often.) At the moment, I'm a Fender man.
I pride myself on my humility.
