I have not played in a long time. I owned an SG in the early 70's, have had a bass for the past 20 years. Now I would like to move back to an electric guitar.
I looked at both today and have read many pros and cons of each. I know it all boils down to what I like, but would like opinions of those who have played both.
I'm a commercial photographer, and I'm sure this boils down to a Canon vs. Nikon thing, only in music.

Ummm...not for nothin' but I have a beautiful Fender American Deluxe, Flamed Maple top, Strat for sale. S-1 Switching. Noiseless pickups. Rare version of the maple flame top as it is also a quilted top. When I talked to Fender trying to get a value to it, they told me to keep it as it is considered a collectible as they did not make many with both the flame and quilt in one top like that.
It is actually at the music shop up the road for sale for $1650.00. But I'd make ya a deal as the shop gets 30%. So I'd take that off. So that is like 50% off a brand new guitar. Comes with a road case, strap, etc....Rosewood neck with gold lockable tuners on it.
Sorry not too many pictures of it here at work. You simply do not see these out of their cases they are so nice. Not a nick on it too. Super mint condition.
Another vote for the Strat. I have had my '89 American Strat since new. If you are not sure on having the tremolo on the Strat you can "block" the trem (Clapton did that). It is not hard and is reversible.
Other vote would be for the Telecaster. My wife got me a J@p Tele with a Nashville set up on the pickups. Nice player, but the Strat is my number 1.
Previously I have had Les Paul Customs, Les Paul copies (good ones), Ibanez strat style, other Tele's I wish I would have kept, and a Gibson Blues Hawk Deluxe. The BLues Hawk was a really versatile guitar - it had a 7-way Varitone, P-100 Stacked humbuckers with tapped/split coils, and you could get a ton of different tones out of it. Only issue with the Blues Hawk was that it had a semi-hollow Les Paul influenced body style that was REALLY neck heavy. You had to be really careful it didn't take a nose dive onto the tuners when you let go of the neck.
