Hi BusterZ...
It may depend on your rhythm style and preference.

I play a thumb/fingerstyle rhythm and the bass of a LesPaul tends to compete with bass players, so I like the sound and texture of a Strat. It lets me fill holes without competing with the other players in the group. I also tend to play more of a rock rhythm than a jazz rhythm so the solid body is best for my style.

My gigging partner is a flat-pick kind of rhythm player and prefers a nice fat humbucking sound. His picks thin down the bottom end and his sounds great with his style.
