Hey, right now i have a Gibson Les Paul Studio and my friend has a Fender American Strat he wants to trade. I love strats and have always wanted one, but the thing that is stopping me from trading him is that i paid 1400 for the LP Studio, and the strat only costs 1000.

What are you thoughts on this? What do u think i should do?

lps are better
it really just matters what tone and sound you want. I like humbuckers better and the sound of the les paul.
if you like the strat a lot, go for it, but i would stay with the lp

i would get the strat.... or an epiphone elitist les paul... seriously high end epi> low end gibson... mainly due to the fact that the japanese dont have shoddy quality control

I hate Les Pauls, but thats just me. If you play a lot of clean stuff go with Strat. Try his strat out and see which you like better.

nvm didnt properly read the thread... you could look for a used strat for cheap so you can have both as well...

Don't trade. They are both great guitars but you will miss one if you trade for the other. I say save some dough and buy a decent used Strat and have both!
