I'm not saying one is better than the other, but as I see it, Fender
Strats and G&L should be held on their own merits. Do you see what I'm
getting at? When talking to someone about guitars to someone calling a Strat
a Strat and a G&L a G&L and you are correctly and more thoroughly describing
two different guitars. You wouldn't call a Strat a Legacy or Comanche,
right? Just my thoughts.
