Which guitarist has your favorite tone?


Mine would probably be Satch's. I don't listen to him terribly much, but his tone is godly.
#2
Kurt Sander's (Nile) heavier, lower riffs, Ernie Mac's (As Blood Runs Black) riffs and harmonies, and Muhammed Suicmez's (Necrophagist) solos.

Kurt Sanders? ROFL...

Allan Holdsworth's tone is godly.

Eddie Van Halen and Angus Young.
There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.
#7
Steve Howe, his clean tone is awesome!

and then of course Brian May.. damn you Red Special!!

and you can never forget Alex Lifeson.

I like the Slash sound from Sweet Child O' Mine. I also want that early Eddie Van Halen tone. But really, I'd like to make a trademark tone of my own. Using an MG, though, kinda limits the possibilities.

frusciante's tone is great, i love how much sustain he gets from that clean tone, and slashe's velvet revolver tone is great.
#23
either the zakk atack or slash becasuse I just love the sound he gets in that solo he does with the talkbox and then the godfarter
#27
Steve Ray Vaughn.

His 13 gauges just make his sound incredible.

I also like Eddie Van Halen's sound..

nice heavy crunch,.

Kurt Sanders? ROFL...

I just like when Kurt plays by himself as he sometimes does, without all the other noise he sounds pretty sweet. Buy then the drums and the other guitarist comes in and it all becomes a big mess of super high gain and pounding double bass... which is also cool.
#29
Danny Lohner, Robin Finck, and Aaron North. Yep.

Well, I guess Trent Reznor could go up there as well, even though his guitar parts are quite basic. Meh, I love him anyway.

Yeah, it has a punch to it in which every note kicks your ass a little. I llike Santana and Clapton's, too.
