    That pedal show live - the first 2 songs were astonishing tonewise - then they had Joey Landreth up who really spoiled the whole thing for me

    Aldo Nova first album
    Derry Grehan in Honeymoon Suite

    The ever tasteful Andy Timmons manages to produce a beautiful set of guitar tones even in a live setting. Andy never lets his virtuoso technique get in the way of the melody. It's all about touch and dynamic phrasing.

    I've always been struck by Mick Ronson's tone and playing on the studio version of Moonage Daydream on David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars.


    I was at a friend's house listening to Ziggy Stardust on a 8 track machine.

    I had to double check that I was on TELECASTER website *ahem*

    Best tone? A tossup between Clarence White on Nashville West or Robbie Robertson on Royal Albert Hall.

    Are you kidding? There is no way to pick one. I have hundreds of references in my head of tone I love.

    -Andy Summers on Synchronicity (Murder by numbers comes to mind) And this is where my tone on electric guitar falls (or, more succinctly what I EQ for) typically except on heavier stuff
    -SRV on everything
    -Hendrix on anything
    -AC/DC Bonn Scott era (Both of the Youngs)
    -Pretenders James Honeyman-Scott
    -Brad Paisley on pretty much everything
    -Wally Palmar / Mike Skill (1980 specifically)

    Umm, yeah and about 10,000 more lol. I could spend all day writing this post...
