Probably the most easily recognisable guitars on the planet today in terms of shape and name are the Fender Stratocaster and the Gibson Les Paul.

They both seem to be brands upon themselves and seem to be known even by people that dont really know anything about guitars.

I know usually you wouldn't really compare the two because they're both really different but I just kind of wondered which you think sells more as a whole, taking into account all versions???? I've wondered for a little while now.
They both have hundreds of variations so I really don't know, unless you just mean the Les Paul standard, Standard Strat etc.
Fender, you can get a decent Fender Strat for a lot cheaper than a Gibson LP.

Please don't tell me I'm the only one that clicked this thread thinking I would learn how to make my guitar sound like a grizzly bear.
probably strats because i tend to see more people with strats then les pauls. Probably because they don't weight as much.

I know a ton of people with both though.

The Strats, just because a lot of people get a Mexican Strat as their beginner guitar because of the huge price difference. You can get a good Strat for like a thousand less than a good Les Paul.
I'd say the strats sells more. Given I actually have some experience of working in a music store, It's from my own experience.
But this could vary a lot from region to region methinks.
