Thanks for this comparison. I never realized how much better the Stratocaster sounds over the Les Paul.

Anil Beria says:

les paul sounds better!!

Damali De Mills says:

I prefer the rawness and balls of the Les Paul, however, I must admit that the Fender definitely has more ability for “expression” than the Les Paul. The Squire sounded horrid and the Epiphone sounded great only if you plan on rocking and pounding your way through songs with low end riffs. Somebody said it below. You probably really need 3 of these guitars to capture what your looking for. I just don’t understand the appeal of the Squire anymore.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t hear a gigantic difference. I’d say it is more about the amp than anything, and of course pedals. I don’t think most listeners of music really know the difference either.

The .Grimesfactor says:

I like them both, but some riffs sound better with the strat and some sound better with the les Paul

Xander Alex says:

Strats seem much brighter to me

gracie481 says:

Really liked hearing all the side by sides. It was easy to hear the budget guitars as “less” than their big boy brethren. Which is not to say they are bad at all, just when the Squier or Epi kicked in after the original you could hear the loss of what defines each. Love my American Strat and my Epi LP, but it was really interesting to me.

Peter Mead says:

simple, put a humbucker in the bridge of the strat. The best of both worlds 🙂

Arturo Aguila says:

KCrimson says:

Neck position riffs sounds like Scuttle Buttin’ by SRV. I prefer the Strats ;P

Telestrat for me

Ayden Campbell says:

Bruh your amazing

Dan Kerr says:

The volume knob location on a strat can be an issue for some because it’s easy to bump into with your picking hand.  To me it seems like it’s in the worst possible location.  I removed mine and now just have one tone knob.  The middle pickup is also in my way because thats right where I pick, so I’ve lowered it all the way down.  I find myself picking up the Tele anyway.
