Well, consider this:
In the recording by The Outlaws of "Green Grass and High Tides", Hughie Thomasson is playing a Stratocaster, and in stereo his guitar will be on the left side of the recording.
Meanwhile, Billy Jones was playing a Gibson Les Paul, which can be heard on the right channel. Jones switched from playing clean to using drive, and you can hear him swapping back and forth at various intervals.
Then too, there are various live recordings of the same song by the same group out there... and as always, The Outlaws sound featured one Fender Stratocaster with one Gibson Les Paul.
This recording is from '82. So it's Hughie Thomasson with his Strat again, and the guy with the Alpine White Les Paul is Freddie Salem. And so here, you can get an idea of what the two guitars sing like together in a live setting.
