    Fender anyday and twice on every other day.

    Better quality, better feel. Even though, I actually own more Gibsons than Fenders. Weird!

    Fender....though if these 2 companies were the only choices I'd give up guitar and find a different hobby.

    As much as I love Gibsons, I am going to have to go with Fender. I just cannot do without an Esquire/Tele. It'd be the one guitar I'd choose if I had to have only one.

    Good thing none of us actually have to make this choice.

    Gibson hands down.

    Also, I rock the acoustic on occasion.

    Fender acoustics suck.

    As much as I like a good Strat or Tele, I have to go with Gibson. They're my comfort zone.

    BOTH.

    if it had to be one, Fender. You can stick humbuckers in a strat and get a meaty tone, or stick single coil sized buckers in a 'stang if you want that shorter scale feel. That's how I feel. Some may hate those options. I'll admit that I'd probably never take either of those modded fender options over a les paul, but if there were no les pauls, I'd be a Fender guy forever.

    But since there ARE les pauls, I need one. Always need to have one.

    Doc baby, has your medication been adjusted recently? You normally are the voice of reason, and now this?

    Considering the fact that I own 12 Gibsons and 1 Fender. I'll go with Gibson.
