it depends what you are palying the strat cant really play metal as well at the sg but the sg is better over all compared the the strat cuz people in country bands use the sg and so do hardcore bands.

Go with the Stratocaster. American strats are awesome, and are more versatiale than SG's.

Depends on wat your playing if your plaing hendrixy stuff or like funky stuff ex. RHCP go with the strat. If your going with more metal with little or no tremelo bar go with the SG

If you're an ACDC fan, go with the SG.

Go for the strat !.....AC/DC stuff can come later..

Hendrix, clapton, SRV is more important than a few riffs.

I like SGs better, it depends on each person really.

I have an SG Standard and a MIJ HSS Strat. They are so different but both are necessary to cover rock and roll. Everyone needs: A Strat, an SG and a 335.
#21
i personally would go with the strat, but if youre gonna be playing what you said you would, you are an SG man.
#22
go with whatever u feel is good for you. they both are excellent guitars. me personally i like Fenders, the Tremelo Bar and the guitar is very playable for most geners

A hot single coil in the bridge can do AC/DC with the right amp.

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.
#24
Threadstarter, you went about this the wrong way. You should have asked, "What guitar should I get?" not "What guitar would you get?"

For your taste, I'd hands down recomend you get the SG, and I think most people will agree.

I'd take the SG, but this is coming from the guy who thinks Les Pauls are overrated...and overpriced.

Try them both out, why should we choose for you when you can just go to a few shops and you can do it yourself.


But it completely depends on what sounds you're going for.
