I always thought the good thing about the guitar was that they didn't teach it in school. - Jimmy Page
I seem to have a unique tone :P

My guitar tone is close to Lars Ulric on s.t. anger... yeah he's a drummer and his snare was out of tune (and NO! it was not esperimental it was out of tone) im just not a very good guitarist x')
I get 100% flawless The Who tone with my orange tiny terror and standard telecaster (bridge pup). It is spot on with no pedals. Pretty damn cool
i sound like kerry king when playing live but practicing i sound like paradise lost.

With my LP I get really close to Satch's tone (mids at 10 ftw), while with my borrowed '93 Squier strat it's pretty close to an Yngwie tone (this is on the neck/middle humbucking position, the bridge has a gold Lace Sensor that is completely worthless).
My tone is quite similar to as i lay dying.
I love it
Even though it took me countless hours of tweaking to achieve, due to this damn MG !

I like to believe I don't sound like anyone else. But, since my gear choice isn't exactly original it can't be too different from other people using similar gear.
I try to get my tone similiar to John Frusciante and Jimi Hendrix
I have done pretty well I think.

I'm rocking my own tone... Its taken me a while but i finally achieved it. But ya never know, someone else might have the exact settings and using a Valveking, Marshall Cab, M108, Modified M104, Modified Tubescreamer, T.V. Delay and Emg's....

Naaaaaaaaaa dont think its gonna happen... lol

been trying to get a good jack white tone at moment but its hard to nail any ideas?
at the mo my tone is probably closest to seasick steve. open tuning, slide and overdriven amp.
I'm around Jeff Waters' style tone at the moment. It's similar to Dave Mustaine's, in the sense that it's a very organic metal tone, but it's boosted and slightly higher on the gain.

So.. organic, smooth but heavy distortion, and a clean boost to ^ dynamics.

Petrucci train of thought era rhythm sound, nice and crisp sounding with lots of mids, and my lead sounds are reminding me of Rustey Cooley's in the way that it sounds with huge vibrato bends.

Unfortunately i havent quite found my sound for my 8, its taking a little while longer than i though to achieve Meshuggah sounds.
Several of my settings will get Matt Bellamy tones. Before I sold my Les Paul I could nail a lot of Andrew Stockdale's tone's.
ESP LTD EC-256 and a Fender Deluxe VM
I have a tone like Alexi Laiho without using half the **** he uses. It will be complete when i get me some sd blackouts.
I spent years aspiring to sound like another guitarist. What a waste of time i just wish id have invested in sounding like me. But now I do so it's all good baby!

Very Gary Moore-ish at the moment. Maybe a hint of Slash's in there aswell. I like that thick sounding texture, it gives it body.
On the clean channel though, it's very much like the lead guitarist (forgive me for forgetting his name) from the Foo Fighters tone on 'The Pretender'.

Lately my tone has been really close to Bury Your Dead's.

Lead - SRV (Think little wing solo)

Kind of a hybrid - Clapton's Beano and early Cream tone crossed with Paul Kossof and a little bit of Pete Townshend for good measure - I like a trebly and biting tone with that sort of LP snarl...

And oddly when I flick over to my neck PU it sounds SRVish at times...quite bizarre for a Les Paul I must admit, but hey I ain't objecting to it!

It beats my "early days" Obscure 70's Brand Plywood Strat/MG15DFX tone
My tone is somewhere between the EVH brown sound & SRV. Ultra responsive dynamics from my non-master volume Mojave 50W. I like my own tone, but I still get wood dialing in the exact old brown sound through my '78 MXR flanger & playing "Unchained" so loud that my arm hairs move.

I don't think my tone mimics one particular person, but im always trying to achieve a better "blues" tone. The one that's in my head is somewhere between SRV, BB King, Buddy Guy, John Mayer, etc. But i basically have two or three tones i use. My main one being the Strat tone, the other being the Gibson tone through my amp on similar settings for each.
