Another time waster thread, did a quick search and found nothing.

Anyway, name tones that really amazed you when you first heard it.

John McVie's bass on Dreams by Fleetwood Mac. It's just so full and gives the song a really cool feel, especially with Mick Fleetwood's drumming which complements the bass so well. I can't help but nod to the beat every time I hear it. In fact this is one of the reasons that made me pick up the bass.

Jimmy Page on Blackdog by Led Zeppelin. One of the coolest tones I've ever heard and I've never heard much else like it. This was actually the first ever Led Zeppelin track I listened to and I knew I was in for something good for the rest of IV.

And some other ones I've always liked:

The Beatles - Octopus' Garden - George Harrison
The Doors - Robby Krieger
Black Sabbath - Tony Iommi

the first guitar solo that i remember wanting to learn was in "Easy" by Lionel Ritchie and the Commodores. Still today I envy that guitar tone...

any stevie ray vaughan. he is the whole reason I started learning blues, now im on the way to becoming a respected blues artist in my area.

(on my way there, everyone says i will make it big, even complete strangers, on another note do not listen to the track in my profile, im going to upload some more.)

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

There are many threads exactly like this. Your searchbar-ing powers must grow, grasshopper.

But I might as well contribute.

I love the tone Andy Timmons gets on "Resolution"
Greg Howe's tone in "Jump Start" is great, but he keeps changing his tone, which is upsetting.
Guthrie Govan's Cornford tone is great
EJ's older tones are amazing, especially on his Austin City Limits recording

George Lynch's guitar tone on the "Under Lock and Key" album.

Nuno Bettencourt's tone on the "Pornografitti" album.

Andy Summers clean tone.
There's my way and the wrong way.

Me too. When someone says "I'm gonna make it big. But don't listen to my music!", you have to listen. I can see why he didn't want us to listen.

Crap, how did I forget about Brian May, I was actually thinking of him before I made the thread. Even his signature guitars can barely pull off his tone.

Tony Iommi, Adam Jones, John Frusciante, Warren Haynes in "Welcome Home" by Coheed and Cambria (Neverender dvd), Matt Bellamy in "Stockholm Syndrome", and... Santana.

Top three:

Eric Johnson on many of his songs and live recordings wins it for me
Guthrie Govan
Steve Vai on some songs like Tender Surrender
