It's funny, though - I don't know that I like the big figured tops on a Fender Strat (says the guy with a couple AAA Les Pauls and a Schecter with flame top and birds-eye neck) For some reason, they look too much for me - maybe I see the Straet as more of a utilitarian, working man's guitar, versus the LP with is more... upscale isn't the word I'm looking for, but similar.
I get that that is the perception today but when Strats first came out working men couldn't really afford Gibson or Martin and most couldn't afford Fender either as a guitar from one of them was usually about a full months' paycheck at the median wage.

Today an equivalent guitar, not at inflation adjusted dollars but as a percent of the median income, would be more than 4500 dollars, or the price of a Gibson R8.
