What is the better brand Fender guitars or Gibson guitars?
Gibson but it really depends on personal preference.
yes, in fact there is! they also make them in china and japan. but do not worry about the quality of the guitar cuz its still a Gibson guitar. Gibson also makes its Epiphone brand guitars in Asia. in my mind, Gibson `s that are made in the USA and Japan are a little better in sound than a Gibson`s from china. Chinese Gibson guitars are built to get the point across, but not to…
Mark Knopfler plays several brands of guitars including Fender, Gibson, Schecter, Pensa, Ovation, and Steinberger. The metal resonator guitar that appears on many of his album covers is a 1936 National Style-O. ========= Mark Knopfler usually plays Fender Stratocasters live and in the studio. For the track "Money for Nothing", however, he used a Gibson Les Paul.

If you mean the musical instrument [guitars, mainly] company, it was founded by Clarence Leonidas Fender, more commonly known as Leo Fender in 1946. For a more complete history of the company, i suggest Wikipedia's entry on the brand: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fender_Musical_Instruments_Corporation
Leo Fender was working with solidbody guitar prototypes as early as the late 1940s. The Fender Broadcaster guitar was first produced in 1950, but by 1952 was renamed the Telecaster due to a trademark issue with Gretsch. In between, Fender actually produced some of these guitars with no brand name (just "Fender" on the headstock); those guitars are quite rare and are known today as "No-casters". The first Fender Stratocaster was produced in 1954.
Polly Jean Harvey usually plays a Fender Telecaster, though she's also been seen playing a Gibson Firebird and various Gibson 335-influenced semi-hollow guitars. The clean guitars on "Angelene" are very "glassy". It sounds like a guitar with low-output single-coil pickups, played through a very clean amp. Possibly the Telecaster with its neck pickup activated. A Gibson humbucker would usually have a louder sound with less treble content.
Most guitar musicians play a variety of types and brands. In the Beatles early days, because they were living and working in Germany, they purchased the relatively cheap Rickenbacker guitars. George also played the Gretsch Country Gentleman and in his later Beatle days, a Fender Telecaster. It is also well documented that he played Gibson and Epiphone guitars.
Guild is a famous maker of american guitars. Their guitars are handmade and produced in the United States which has given them the reputation of creating expensive, but very well made and good sounding guitars. In recent years they also provide cheaper but imported guitars. The brand has since been bought by Fender.
Epiphone is a division of Gibson, so they are both basically the same brand. Epiphones are great for a great price and will suit anybody just fine. However, Gibson guitars are more special releases and limited editions, although they do have standards. Gibsons are a lot pricier because there is usually something special about them. If you are looking at one of these brands as a first time Gibson buyer, I would recommend Epiphone.
Leo Fender. He also made the telecaster and well... Everything fender brand. If you want to by a modern fender you could also look at G&L, L stands for Leo and is his last project before he died. If he had kept control of the Fender Guitar Company, the guitars one can buy from G&L would probably be 'Fender'
Which company made it. =============== There's no such thing as a "guitar title". The "brand" of the guitar refers to which company made it -- Gibson, Fender, Paul Reed Smith, Ibanez, etc. The "name" or "model" of the guitar refers to a particular design of guitar. For example, Gibson "ES-335", Fender "Telecaster", PRS "McCarty Soapbar Standard" or Ibanez "S470".
