Gibson Les Paul vs. Fender Strat

I'm not talking about tone here, but rather lets say they were transformed in to human-like beings and made to fight in the octogon.

I see the Gibson Les Paul as being somewhat Ken Shamrock-ish and the leaner, more nimble strat being like Royce Gracie.

Who wins?

Just throw a turducken down Ditka's pants and John Madden would rip him to shreds..

the strat goes for some wimpy submission hold, while the lp pummels it tank abbot style into tko.

The les paul would be afraid of getting a mark on its face.

The strat would have cut itself to shreds trying to look like it'd been in a million barfights, although it had never been out of the house, and would pass out from blood loss before the fight ever started.

While the Les paul continued to look at himself in the mirror, admiring his historically accurate visage.

It just wouldn't be pretty.

Doesn't seem like a fair fight. The LP would easily outweight the Strat, though the Strat would have a longer reach...

Hell, A tele would jump up from the audience and kick both of their butts.
Iwas gonna say something like:
'the strat would keep sticking and moving behind the jab. And the les paul would land a few bombs but couldn't hurt the strat blah blah blah blah...'

But you right! The tele would lay down the smack on both they asses!

The answer, of course, is Chuck Norris.
That does beg the question, "which guitar would Chuck Norris play?"

The answer might be, "Neither. He ties his beard to an electrical transformer and with a stick of dynamite as his pick he strikes a chord on his beard which causes a statewide blackout. He then eats the dynamite, poops out firecrackers, and give them to the neighborhood kids. When those firecrackers are lighted the sound you hear is "CHUCK!"

Or maybe he plays a ukulele. The world's COOLEST ukulele, of course!

In the early rounds, the Strat dances around the Gibson, jabbing & moving, jabbing & moving. The Gibby is heavier, kinda flat on it's feet. It just kinda lumbers around chasing after the Strat, trying to land the big punch. It connects a couple on the Strat, glancing blows that make the Strat momentarily dazed. The Gibby has power, if it connects with a big right, it's all over.

As the fight wears on, the Strat starts working the body, and the Gibby is getting tired, winded. Finally the Gibby is so tired it can't keep its hands up anymore, and BAM. The Strat hits it with a vicious combo and it goes down like a ton of bricks. It can't answer the count. Fight over.

The Lester would go to the body and keep the fight inside and pummel the **** out of the the skinny little strat.

This is assuming the Lester already had it's neck broken and repaired while in training. Tricking the strat to come in high for the neck move. It would be over fast.

However if the strat hits a new Lester in the head. It'll break it's neck. The fight would be over in short order.
