Hi there all! I thought I'd poll the masses before buying another new guitar!
I'm stuck between a MiM Fender Stratocaster or a Custom Riveria Epiphone P93.
I've played the Strat but not the P93 but I've seen some videos of it and I like it.
I'm into playing Blues/ Blues Rock like The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, Hanni el Khatib etc. if that helps any.

Thank you all in advance for your help.

pretty different guitars there tough to compare. P-90s or fender single coils which would suite you better. the riveria is a semi-hollow which will yield a different tone as well. if you plan on doing any real whammy bar work then the bigsby style probably won't cut it.

i dunno both are really good guitars. not really a semi-hollow kinda guy but the riveria is the one that i would get if the urge hit me. played one several times and really enjoyed it for blues and more regular rock stuff. since i tend more towards hard rock it wouldn't be a go to guitar.

for the bands you mentioned i guess either would work but perhaps the Epi would be a better fit.
