Personally I absolutely LOVE all Fender products from their fantastic guitars such as the stratocaster (my first guitar and its so good I still play it all the time) a tele (also a great guitar but I think strats are better JUST MY OPINION I STILL LOVE TELIES) and I also think Mustangs are fantastic and they look really cool I also love their amps- I have a Frontman 15 and 30 G they are both great amps so that is why I think Fender deserves 1st but still I admit Gibson has some GREAT guitars and they have 2 VERY different sounds so I think they are about even in quality even though I prefer Fender products
This company should be the best 'cause fender changed also every thing in music and in just about every rock/blues/jazz song you can see the guitar that the lead guitarist and the Fender Stratocaster is the most played by an artist guitar in the world. Gibson... I don't really know why the company in no. 1.. I mean its stupid their guitars arn't even good sure the les paul is one of the first electric guitar but it doesn't sound good and the sg doesn'e look or sound good. I think that Fender should be no. 1 their the best and everyone knows it!
I'm twelve, and my dad recently bought me a tres expensive fender squire stratocaster, and it is easily the best guitar I have ever played. My dad said, when I asked about the Gibson vs. Fender thing, he laughed and said: 'You can't compare them. It's like a mustang and a ferrari, they're good in different ways. The Gibson Les Paul is the king, and the Fender Stratocaster is like the more popular, better looking Prince. ' And I completely agree.
You can make a Fender single-coil sound like anything with the right amps and effects. Can't do the same thing with a Gibson. I owned a couple Gibson and I sold them both. Don't like the necks, the body shape is uncomfortable and the quality is not as good as it should be given the price. Having said that - Fender is overrated as well. Don't pay for the name people! Musicman Silhouette Special is where it's at. Give me a modern guitar that's not trapped in the 1950's because of hype nostalgia.
The Fender Stratocaster is the greatest guitar of all time. Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, and Jeff Beck are just a few of the legends who play this beauty. With a crisp sound, it sounds fantastic in any kind of playing. A guitar that is great for beginners and experts alike, it's a nice instrument which you can learn technics easily. I own multiple Fenders and I prefer them over my Gibson. Whether it's a Strat, Tele or Jag, they stand above Gibson by a long shot.
Much better quality, sound and versatility than any other brand, I played a Stratocaster and an SG, at guitar center, the Strat was a lot better in my opinion. I also bought a Telecaster that thing rocks, they may not be as popular or have as many designs as Gibson, but from the Fenders I have Played, I was really impressed. Nothing against Gibson though they are amazing too, just if I had a choice, I would always go with a Fender guitar.
Fenders are durable, lighter, and versatile than their competition. What's more is that you can probably get them for a decent price. More? It has tradition. Fender's a proven company, and they shred Gibson by putting out guitars with better quality control at lower prices. You really can't want more than that.
Fender is the best in sound and quality. Look at how many famous guitarist use a fender. if you look at the classic guitarist they all played either a Fender or a Gibson. The guitars are well designed and play great. As an owner of a stratocaster I can tell you that this is an ideal guitar for ;players of all levels.
Compared it with yamaha on a guitar center store.. I wasnt gonna buy one. It just so happened that I was with my best friend and he asked me to go help him find a nice guitar. I held my hands on a yamaha I like it.. I got curious and tried fender.. I love it! The sound is finer for my ears.. We went to the counter, my friend paid for it and said " belated happy birthday" it was the day after my birthday wooho!
I think Fenders are awesome. Really I like the shape and sound better than Gibson. Even though Gibsons are pretty good, but I just prefer Fenders more. Many great and famous guitarists have used fenders. I have a fender myself and its great, so do a lot of people I know. Some of the best are stratocasters and telecasters.
I have a vintage telecaster and it sounds great, has a good body and stays in tune for a long time I got it when guitar center was getting rid of them and it cost me 250 bucks no joke, I'm a bigger fan of fender than Gibson because Fenders tend to weigh much less but beside that both guitars are good but I do prefer fender
Both the Fender Stat and Tele are incredibly versitile. The Strat was a revolutionary design and has stood the test of time and been copied by others in the guitar industry. The Tele, with it's slab design and single cut-away, is so simple, yet it screams "Rock n' Roll. " Simple, but great!
Fender is the best. But not just for guitars. Yes, I understand that Gibson makes very good guitars and I can't disagree with that. Fender makes great guitars, strings, and amplifiers. I mean how often do you see a professional guitar player use any other amplifiers than Fender or Marshall.
Fender is awesome but I would have to say squier classic vibe overpowers fenders standard model of guitars. If you want a guitar for lots of money fender over gibson I mean jimi hendrix used it a fellow lefty like myself and for those guitars not to go out of tune when jimi played them it means lots of work goes into them.
Tone is very subjective, but for me Fender Stratocaster tone is the best. Just ask David Gilmour, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Johnson, Hank Marvin, and too many to count! Amazing Guitars, much richer and more dynamic tone than any Gibson could produce.
The tone is so much better on a stratocaster than a les Paul! Jimi Hendrix? Eric Clapton? Eric Johnson? SRV? Are you kidding me? Don't even get me started on what ge Telecaster means to the world and all the fantastic players that use it. Oh yeah... Also invented the electric bass guitar! P Bass and Jazz Bass have shaped modern music. So... Yeah Gibson has one really good thing... The Les Paul. The guy that invented it wasn't Gibson by the way.
I have a standard American Telecaster. Build quality and sound is really good. It is a simple guitar from feature point of view, but you really get what you see. For straight forward guitars like the Telecaster, Fender delivers top-quality in my oinion.
Every man comes to a point where he must choose whether he's more of a Page or Hendrix... And I'm clearly a Hendrix guy! Lol seriousely, Fender are simply amazing, very versatile, well damn comfortable and they'll never le you down. Fender clearly owns.
Fender in my opinion has the best quality of sound and with every fender I have picked up and played I think that the wood is perfect and that if you are looking for a bad ass electric guitar that has great sound and looks sick a fender is the guitar you are looking for way better that Gibson
For decades, Fender has created guitars which not only present guitarists with quality instruments, but also audiences with the splendor of the fine tones and beautiful colors. Do you wear socks? The sound of a Fender guitar will knock them off and replace them with better socks made with the finest materials.
I own one Fender Accustic Electric it was a great price and sounds better than most guitars that cost over $1,000 and I only paid $400. I would reccomend this brand to everyone. I am currently looking for my second Fender, this time I'm going for an electric.
Fenders just balls to the walls and most multi genre guitar. Gibson can't compete when it comes to versatility. Fender even sounds great with metal, has cheaper maintenance than gibson, and makes lighter guitars so you can be on stage longer.
I have a USA Ash Deluxe Strat with HSS pickup config. That has some awesome tones going on.
All custom wired with a DP-161 in the bridge.
Compound radius neck.
I have plenty of guitars to choose from but this thing is my weapon of choice.
personally I think gibson les pauls suck, thats just my opinon though, but fender is where it is at, I have a squier by fender and I love it, I know people say their just beginer guitars by fender and squier are epic and amazing
I have 3 Fender guitars and 1 Gibson. I definitely favor my Fenders. The Gibson has great sound quality, and its strings are amazing, but there is just something special about my Fenders that make them more appealing.
