Well, I am stuck on which guitar to get, either:

Fender USA American Standard Stratocaster: £699


Gibson Les Paul Studio: £799

I play blues mostly, like Cream, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix etc.
But I also like indie music, like The Smiths, Arctic Monkeys etc.

Which one would you recommend?

Two different guitars with two different sounds. I have both but I prefer the Strat for blues. I also like the crunch ability of a Les Paul for harder rock.
The Strat is lighter on your shoulder.
I'd get one of the SSH Strats and coil-tap the bridge. Or buy the one that's tapped already if you don't want to do the wiring yourself.
