depends on sound you want, wich artists have the tone you like best.

I would personnally take the fender, because I prefer the versatality of the different pickups, and I don't like SG necks.

Try 'em both.

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.

Are you serious????? On question: Why on God (or buddha, or allah, or whichever way you roll)'s green Earth would you compare a Fender to a lowly Epiphone? Obviously, you'll get more value with the Fender. It's got humbucker tone and single-coil tone. Gibson's are all just humbuckers. Plus, with a Fender, if you wanna change pickup configurations, you just gotta change pickguards (and have the correct pickups of course). If you want something to last, to customize, take the Fender.

EDIT: When I said Gibson, I mean Epiphone. But the same holds true for any Gibson that I have seen.

My friend has a Standard Fat Strat and it is brilliant. It's a lot more versatile than an Epiphone and can deliver pretty much any sound you need, coupled with the right gear.

Personally, I'd go for the Strat.

dude they're both pretty great, I own a strat(not an HSS, but I've tried one out) and I've played most of the epi's out there, go with the fender, faster neck, and more versatility, the epi's great too, but trust me the fender can do a lot for tone and playability

I usually go for the ones I feel comfortable playing (with good sounds, of course). So try 'em both, which one do you like more? And if you can't decide, then consider the quality.
