Strat played trough a Marshall however. The Strat existed before the Marshall. So I would say the Marshall Amp. wink.gif However, I purposely didn't include players as that's a whole different topic.

I voted Marshall. Just about every major show you saw, there were 500 stacks behind the stage laugh.gif The strat was huge and still is but without that vintage Marshall, fully saturated grunt, it would not have been the same. smile.gif

I voted Les Paul, it probably won't be the top pick but when I think of rock, I think of Led Zeppelin and Jimmy Page with his Les Paul dangling at his knees. That's rock'n roll to me anyway. The strat is a great rock guitar, but I feel it's more synonymous with blues, it's a more versatile guitar than the les paul imo, probably one of the most versatile guitars out there.

To me the quintessential rock setup is a Les Paul played through a Marshall. Exactly for the reason's you said. I was also debating about the Gibson SG ala Angus Young or Toni Iommi. However, the amp was all was a Marshall.

I'm wondering if Jim Marshall wouldn't have created his amp where rock and roll would have headed.

Even though I'm biased towards a Les Paul because that's the only guitar I own, I resisted my bias and voted 'strat'. To many, when they think of 'electric guitar' and 'rock and roll' they think of the stratocaster model.

The reason I left the choices I did (no Mesa Boogie) was I was trying to see what people thought propelled guitar rock and roll to the for front it became in the 70's and 80's and beyond. Mesa really didn't come into their own until the demand for over the top gain. Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Hendrix, Clapton etc. these where just a few of the bands I had in mind when coming up with this poll.

No disrespect to Mesa, as I think their Triaxis may just be the single greatest guitar preamp ever made.

Taking a neutral stance in this thread (though I'm leaning to the strat), Page actually played a telecaster on the first couple zeppelin records I believe. Iommi played Marshalls, but Laney has been around nearly as long as marshall and he played them early on and does today as well. Boogie hot rodded the fender amps to make rock and roll heavier, the first to do so I think.

To me, "rock and roll" evokes the image of a strat or tele (though I think the strat is universally thought of when the average person thinks of 'guitar') through a bassman or deluxe, maybe a plexi or a vox.

If you want to go into what influenced hard rock the most, I would go les paul/marshall all the way.
