Hi everybody. Speaking of electric guitars, these two brands have been consistently present from long time ago, and both of them have their own qualities. I'd like to know which one do you prefer, trying to be very general. I mean, It doesn't matter to me if it's a Stratocaster, Telecaster, Les Paul, SG... just your preference on these two venerable brands. I go for Gibsons. Not only because of their looks, but because that's the sound I associate with my favorite players. Besides, Gibson guitars have a shorter scale length than Fenders, which result in a less twangy sound and easier string bendings. Of course there are great examples of the Fender sound, being Stevie Ray Vaughan my favorite, but I feel more sympathy for Gibsons, anyway. Something that I've been curious is why Gibson couldn't put in the market a bass as respectable as a Les Paul guitar. Of course there are the well-known Thunderbirds, but Gibson basses haven't had such an impact compared with Fenders. Thanks for voting!
