Yeah, a massive difference between them all.

Don't get me wrong, they're all great guitars, which he doesn't change any settings for. The Strat is massively versatile, and has a few unique sounds, especially in the "in Between" positions on the selector switch.

The Les Paul has a bit more "Grunt" and sustain, but to my ears,the Eggle, (Yeah, I think it's a "proper" one), has a more "rounded and finished" tone, and beats the Les Paul hands down on sustain.Plus it has the coil taps, etc, which make it a more versatile instrument than both the others.

When he bought the Eggle he compared it side-by-side with a PRS in the shop - same amp, same settings, and the PRS lost the race "by a clear amount".

We spent a few years in a band with just Drums / Bass / Guitar, and it wasn't until he bought the Eggle that our sound was truly complete - my opinion, and that of some of our regular "Punters".

I guess in the end it's about individual ears and tastes.

I don't really care, but I find I like more bands who use Gibsons.

i dont think it really should use both excluding a sound is dumb. if you have real tone it'll come through you're fingers

^ this is true. I remember back when I was in college, I was playing my fender electric in the lunch area (not plugged in) and a fellow student was at the next table. He said "you've always had great tone"... I said thanks, but I was kinda confused since I wasn't plugged in and then I realized he meant the sound of how I hit the notes. He was awesome so I think back at that moment when I feel like I suck
