Fender definitley. I like the sound better. But Gibson does have better looking guitars. All Fenders look alike and they wont explore different body types which gets kind of old.

Fender for me... I used to like Gibson more,
but then I tried a Les Paul at a music shop,
and it didn't just work for me.

But I like Music Man way
better than Fender or Gibson smile.gif

How would you use black underwear differently to white underwear? dry.gif

I'm certainly a Fender fan myself.

Gibson represents the classical humbucker sound and fender represents the classical single coil sound. Other brands will probably lie somewhere between both (Ibanez for instance gives a good compromise of humbucker and single coil sound).

So I'd say if you want full flexibility in what you are able to play a good way to go is having one fender and one gibson.

To my taste, Gibson gives the kind of distorted sound I love (like Led Zeppelin or Guns n Roses). Fender gives the kind of cleans I love (like Sultans of swing or comfortably numb). I just don´t feel right playing sultans of swing in a les paul as I just don't feel right playing black dog. in a strat.

I wish I had a fender equipped with original wide range humbuckers. They were fender's response to gibson's humbuckers, and they're supposedly really good (designed by the same guy that designed gibson's original PAF's). They make reissues I think but they're not as good from what I hear. But people pay a lot of money for the original ones if they can find them, so I'd love to get my hands on some smile.gif
