You'll notice that the Gibson Les Paul has a "Rhythm" postion switch and a lot of players that focus on strumming play the LP although to me its best used by a "lead guitarist". I like the Fender Stratocaster as the best all-around/crossover/utility guitar. The Strat is equally at home playing the blues as it is playing country, rock, surf music, jazz, funk and everything in between. Although I have a Strat I enjoy playing my strat shapped guitars, PRS CU22 and McCarty. The McCarty is a nice compromise between the Les Paul and Strat, without whammy bar. Hope this helps.
