I want a Les Paul more than a Strat so I think Gibson is my choice there.

I'd go for fender simply for the easy mods and versatility, plus I don't like the whole Hi-gloss neck finish.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
Im sorry but a good Les paul imo is better than at least 90% of fenders.

Gibson, so I could sell it and buy a couple fenders
But I like the sounds of a Fender, than a Gibson.
since i already have a fender, i'd take a gibson explorer
I wish my lawn was Emo so it would cut itself.

If at first you DO succeed, try not to look so astonished.
BTW i am a bassist and we all know gibson is not the best in basses
but if a guitar i think i am not sure yet, but maybe a telecaster

I once saw somebody carry a Guitar Hero controller in a case to protect it. He probably should have packed his testicles in there too, seeing as he won't need to use those for quite a while.

Gibson for me, I'd like a nice LP or Explorer over Fender any day. I'm still a fan of Fender though.

tom morello that bitch

^ Talking about how high to play your guitar.
overall Fender but the Diablo SG is the sex!

Fender's quality has degreed a bit but gibson's quality drops like a stone right now
medium-quality wood, strange shapes, chambered body's etc.

What a huge coincidence. I have a butthole also.
Old Gibson > Fender

Fender > Current Gibsons

I'd prefer an original 59' Les Paul so i'm a Gibson guy in the sense. However any of the new American series fenders seems much better than the robot guitars Gibson has put out.
