Fender Stratocaster & Gibson Les Paul – Electric Guitar Icons

There are two iconic basic shapes of solid body electric guitars, which also differ significantly in sound. One is the Fender Stratocaster - usually with an alder, ash, lime or poplar body. The neck is screwed in and is made of maple with a rosewood fingerboard. The pickups are three single-coil pickups, which give the instrument a wiry bell-like tone - the striking Twang sound is typical for the Strat - it is the Fender sound par excellence. In contrast, a Gibson Les Paul Standard is made of mahogany with a curved maple top and a glued-in mahogany neck. This choice of wood and construction already provide a stable sound foundation, which the humbucker pickups used here give even more pressure and assertiveness. The Gibson Les Paul feels most comfortable on a Marshall stack or a modern high-gain amp. In addition, the Fender Telecaster, the first electric guitar designed by Leo Fender based on the Lap Steel guitar, is still regarded today as a classic in the range. The now 70 year old solid-body electric guitar is associated with the classic sound character of the single coil and its basic design is also popular among modern rock and metal genres. Beside the famous Gibson Les Paul Standard, the Gibson SG is the most famous guitar model of the guitar maker from Nashville. The guitar, often affectionately referred to as a rock-board, features two humbucker pickups in basic configuration and has become immortal especially in the hands of Angus Young from AC/DC.

Buy an electric guitar: Variety in body shape, equipment, construction method and price

Between Fender and Gibson guitars, a wide variety of shapes and variations have developed over the decades, such as the noble instruments of Paul Reed Smith, which combine the body shape of the Fender Stratocaster with the construction and pickup assembly of a Gibson Les Paul. However, this is also possible at a slightly lower price, as shown by the instruments manufactured by Fame in Europe, which offer this hybrid design at budget-friendly prices. Beside classical guitar forms like Stratocaster, Telecaster or Les Paul, which are offered by Fender, Gibson, Epiphone, Squier, Jack & Danny, Ibanez, Yamaha and Godin in innumerable configuration variants and lacquering, there are also many other beautiful forms to discover: Fender Jazzmaster and Mustang, Gibson Flying V, Firebird and Explorer, the Yamaha Revstar models or the Danelectro Sitar guitar are just a few of the models that are available in a wide variety of different versions.

Single Coil or Humbucker?

An important question when choosing the right combination of electric guitar and amplifier is usually the pickup. The best known designs are the single coil for airy clear sounds and the double coil humbucker well known from the Les Paul electric guitar. This provides a rather warm and fat sound when played on the amplifier and also effectively suppresses ambient noise at higher gain settings. Exotic shapes such as the mini humbucker with narrower magnetic field, P-90 single coils with extra wide winding and even humbuckers in single coil format are also numerous in the Music Store Online Shop.
