The Final Four

Final Four of Guitars banner

We have reached the Final Four in our March Madness for guitars! It's gonna be a classic because we've got Gibson vs. Fender in each matchup.

There were some close games in the road to this point. The Telecaster survived a tough test from the Jazz Master in the Elite 8, and the Les Paul barely slipped past the Fender Broadcaster on a buzz-beater 3 to move past the Sweet 16.

So, here are our Final Four Matchups:

  • 1954 Fender Stratocaster vs. 1958 Gibson ES-335
  • 1952 Fender Telecaster vs. 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard

It's looking like the winner of the Les Paul vs. Telecaster is gonna be the favorite in the final. But I wouldn't put it past a Stratocaster to sneak to victory. You can still influence the outcome by voting here.
