I love clean tone and yet i love warm too.

Fender for clean while Gibson for warm. I am stuck on the decision, what should i go for?

need more info, what styles do you play in?

I think that Gibson gives you a better scope. play anything from blues to medium heavy metal.

I'd say fender.

Or try PRS.
Fender 60th Anniversary Standard Strat,
Epiphone Les Paul ES,
Line6 Flextone III,
Laney VC15,
Some pedals,
Some recording gear.

PRS or Ibanez.

For PRS, pretty much anything will be versatile. For Ibanez, try an SZ. they're great.

If you don't want to give those brands a try, get a Fender Strat, with an HSS setup. Use the single coils for cleans, and the humbucker for anthing a little more on the heavy side.

ya, but more are bad in those series than in others. you have to be a bit more careful choosing one of those as opposed to a higher end model.

What amp do you have? What is your current guitar? What currency is this cash in?

I'd probably recommend the Fender Standard Strat plus upgrades... unless you can find a Jap one?
#16
I think there's alot to weigh up.

Obviously there's the sound. Single coils sound very different to humbuckers. You can use single coils up to shred, but not really heavy metal. Humbuckers aren't as great at subtle playing and clean.

Also, asides from the sound and such, a top end Fender is half the price of a Gibson Les Paul.

perfect answer. it really comes down to taste. fender strats have a warm thick sound, les pauls have a sharp sound. now you can toy with the sounds via amps, effects, etc. but the tones will be different from one guitar to another.

i have an epi les paul. it's a good one. picked it up new for $550 on sale. i'm now looking for a mexican standard strat.

blues: SRV played a strat almost exclusively...duane allman played a les paul almost exclusively. they both played blues. they both sounded great. you'll find examples of both in every genre. play both, pick the one you like. pauls are the more expensive of the two though for the most part.

If you want a compromise get som,ething with a H-S-H configuration, either that or a pair of humbuckers with coil splits or series/parallel switching.

Well, my b-day is coming up(april 4th) and i wanna buy another guitar. Yet, i have no clue which guitars are great for which type of music. Since i don't have easy access to a music store/ guitar expert, ill ask you guys
I play alot of song like ac/dc, Jet, and GNR. The Beatles, 3 doors down, Aerosmith, Arctic Monkeys, and the whiote stripes. I noticed that both GNR(slash) and Angus young have gibsons. So mabye a les paul copy? I dont know the strengths and weaknesses of the Les Paul. Let alone a copy.
My price range is around $400-$500, so i know im not going to get an exceptionally perfect guitar. But a pretty good one would do just fine.
My Amplifier is another matter. I have just a lame practice amp, pretty small, barely any wattage. So im gonna get an amp later, but i sometimes dont plug my guitar in, and play.
The Les Paul is used by Slash, but i dont know about crunchy power chords and small licks.
So which guitar is good for which playing style?


Go make a new thread...

the mustang sounds really nice with distortion and it has a bell like clean tone very nice...

or you could get a standard strat and put a set of laces(pick ups in case you arent familiar) on it for an improved tone

id recommend blue/silver/red... im pretty sure thats the order ive tried...again nice cean and nice distortion... versatile as hell as wel

Get a Fender Stratocaster. They have great cleans and warms. And they're perfect for blues and funk.

Yeah, torn b2een the strat and a Gibson, the ultimate problem. You gotta go with your gut feeling. Personally, I would pick a Faded version of a Gibson, but that is me.(I love humbuckers.) But, if you want to go with a more RHCP tone, go with the MIM strat, 3 single coil, or HSS would do it.
