Topic: Gibson Les Paul Deluxe vs.Home Made Stratocaster

This is a bit on the long side I am testing new software for TrakAx Pro a video production company and also the 1st time I have played both my new Les Paul and the Strat I put together from scratch. There are a few errors namely when I switched over to my Strat I had a problem getting the strap off the Les Paul and one of my strings was out of tune so I had to tune it on the fly but I did get a chance to record my newest song ( instrumental part) no lyrics yet but it is promising smile

Both sound great Russell,I am leaning alittle more too the Les Paul it is most likely because of the songs. I liked the stars and sky/moon background.

Re: Gibson Les Paul Deluxe vs.Home Made Stratocaster

I'm going to vote for the Les Paul also. The humbucker sound is typically my first choice because of the music I like (classic rock, prog rock, etc.). The single coil sound of a Strat lends itself better for blues, southern rock, and country, where smooth / clear / twang is favored over the thick / growling / chunky tones of the humbuckers.

That said, you've crafted two very beautifully voiced guitars!

ACOUSTICS:  Cordoba D10-CE / LaPatrie "Concert" / Takamine GD30CE-12 / Norman ST30

AMPS:  Traynor YCS50 / Peavey VK212 / Traynor AM150T

Thank you! dino I like the background myself I found it by accident it was tucked away in my Pinnacle HD video program along with 40 other motion backgrounds. I favor the LP for blues and harder rock but the Strat has three hot Texas coils and can produce some very interesting sounds.
