60: The Sound of Different Guitar Brands

If you enjoy our podcast, please leave a quick rating. It only takes a minute and it means the world to us.

Ever wonder about the tonal difference between a Les Paul and Telecaster? Sure, these guitars LOOK different. You may even associate them with very different types of bands or genres but do they SOUND different? 

Guitars are expensive and most of us only own a choice few. Fortunately, on today’s episode, we get to play through some samples created by listener John Connor (thank you!) and finally compare some of the classic household names. 

This test can help us understand which guitar to choose for a certain project, or which guitar to put on our gear wish list!
