I use both, if I want more crunch, I go with my Les, and for crisp sound, I go with the strat.

Strat -- middle/bridge pickup for me. The Les Paul is alright, but i like the bright, crisp sound of the Strat better.

Les Paul. That rich tone is simply beautiful. Though I couldn't imagine hearing something like "Streets" on one.

Strat. i have a 1979 black on black, same exact guitar edge has. Les Paul's are extremely heavy and can't get the nice tones needed for a lot of u2 songs.

Strat. My first electric! (bought in '94, black MIM, maple fretboard, white pickguard). Love that chimey "Streets" tone!

Currently Strats are my main guitar electric wise.But Les Pauls are useful when u want a different sound.A delay sound def sounds better ( to me) with a single coil guitar.

I have 4 Strats vs. 1 Les Paul. Nice guitars , Les Pauls, but its hard to do fret the high notes due to the body shape.

I have both a Fender (Mexi) Strat and a Gibson Les Paul Standard. There really is no comparisson, both clean and distorted the LP knocks the Strat out of the water
