1 BuddyHollywood 10 months ago Time has proven that these 3 guitars, the Fender Telecaster, Stratocaster and Gibson Les Paul are the most widely used, most popular and most copied electric guitars. Why do you think this is and if one of these guitars is your main guitar over your Gretsch, why? Is it the sounds they make? Is it their playability? Is it their durability? Is it their ease of finding replacement parts? I'm sure there are many other varied reasons. My personal favorite of the 3 is the Stratocaster. It was the Stratocaster sound that lead me to the Gretsch Duo Jet with Dynasonics.
