    Ed Volkaert is golden in my book.
    Now I did see Johnny Moeller playing guitar last Saturday with the current Fabulous Thunderbirds and I have to say he had it dialed in and delivered the goods big time!

    Jerry on Dobro is killer tone, but he's NOT playing Dobro on that cut. He's playing his Lap King Steel. It was built by Jason Dumon with Lollor "Supro" string though bridge pickup and Gold Foil neck pickup, then a Hipshot "double shot" tail piece to change tunings instantly.

    Constantly two of my favorites players with not just the best tone, but also the most tasteful playing.

    Marty Stuart with "Clarence" - on just about everything!! I especially enjoy the tone of that legendary guitar when Marty is just running it through a TubeScreamer (with a tad of dirt) and a little bit of compression (at least that's what it sound like he's running the guitar through to my ears) and that itty-bitty Princeton Reverb amp!! I'm amazed at how great that little amp sounds!! As for the guitar's tone on the new CD? It's perfect!!!

    Way too many good tones out there to pick just one, or just ten.

    Eric Johnson Austin City Limits really got me hooked on tones. The list goes on and on from there. Jake E. Lee Badlands record has some amazing classic tones on there. My top Billy Gibbons hands down. He just oozes tone. Joe Walsh maybe a close 2nd.

    For dirtier tone, Tab Benoit on the album Power of the Pontchartrain. Telecaster into Tweed goodness.

    For clean tones, the electric guitar tones on several songs on Sleep through the Static, by Jack Johnson. Sounds like Tele into BF Deluxe or Princeton, to me. Just sparkling clean and clear, and you can hear fingers or pick on every string.

    After all these yrs, a hot summer nite in Ariz. Its still stuck in my head. Terry Kath, a guitar and only one pedal ( fuzz wha). What he did that nite was beyond belief.
