For me personally, the ultimate guitar tone I have heard was achieved by Ron Wood with the Faces song "Stay With Me." The lick at the beginning of the song is IMO superb, with a tone to die for. Nice, warm and fuzzy with a hint of menace.

What I want to know is does anyone know what setup he used for the sound he achieved. I know that the guitar part may be multi layered etc, but if I could be pointed in the right direction I would be most grateful as that is THE tone I want.

I know the gear will probably be too expensive for me but I can always find a cheaper alternative.
