Well, i too beg to differ smile.gif
How many live-shows have you seen someone break a LP? There's a reason why everyone who bashes up a guitar on stage use a strat as their victim..

And.. you wouldnt believe the abuse my LP has endured! It's just 15 years old but it looks like it's been through both WW1 and WW2.
Still plays as good as new though, if not better smile.gif


Of course a Strat is more durable. They were designed to be so in the beginning. I have a Strat, rarely play it though. I have been pretty pleased at how well my LP's have held up. You just have to be a bit more careful, but not unreasonably so. Nothing wrong with being a bit careful. I mean, you don't set your coffee up on top of your computer either. With some of the best things, being a bit more careful comes with the turf.

I find the LP very comfortable, more than my other guitars. As Trond said, you quickly get used to them, or at least many of us feel that way. There is just something real nice about playing a LP.

Actually I would take a Tele over a Strat in terms of comfort. I also have a Tele, which I again rarely play. I just seem to always want to play a LP, something about a LP. I always was fond of them because Jimmy Page played one. But I think it is a lot more than that, I just like everything about them.

For me its not a question of which guitar-body is most sexy - rather, which guitar can You pick up the most sexiest bodies with? And by my experience this issue shows that a strat will win on all occasions. (unless You're not gigging at a retirement home) Why?

A Strat has a more human body (eg. a LP looks like it missing an arm or something), and reminds the girls of a Phallos-symbol. And if You shake that symbol fast enough, it will remind them of something else. No matter of how YOU look. They keep their eyes on the guitar and making fantasies of what is there behind....

The Strat! Its amazing how a body style that was made over 50 years ago is still considered by many to be the best body shape!
