All my favorite guitarists use the les paul. Jimmy PAge and Slash both used a les paul and a EDS-1275 (my next favorite guitar)

6 Ibanez Jem Ibanez Jem
7 Jackson King V
8 Gibson EDS-1275
9 Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster Pro Relic Electric Guitar

Stratocaster (Standard version) has better headstock with better tuning keys. Straight across the line. Which actually makes it little bit of better than Les Paul (standard) tuning keys. Cause les paul's tuning could be frequently out of tuning than fender.

Another great thing about Stratocaster is that it has built in vibrato arm. Which les paul doesn't have. - zxm

10 Fender Telecaster

Ohhh the fender strat is niwhere near the fender or squier tele

The telecaster is a versatile classic. It has a unique design with a great sound that has lasted through the ages. Merle haggard and Johnny greenwood of radio head both play them. Enough said

The greatest guitar ever. I have one that has amazing sound.a tiny little paint chip witch makes it look somehow even me awesome and half of rock music was made on the tele
