Sounds like I'm being deliberately contrary for the sake of it, but to me you struggle to beat the sound of a good telecaster and an overdriven AC30. And for me Robyn Hitchcock's is as good as it gets. I'm a simple lo-fi sort of guy.



the sound of a good telecaster and an overdriven AC30

It sounds fucking amazing.

Doesn't come as a great surprise, but it's always gratifying to hear from fellow Robyn Hitchcock fans. He doesn't rock out as much as back in the Soft Boy days, but he's still using a Telecaster for live shows when not on an acoustic (at least the last few times I've seen him).

Loving these examples. Its really interesting to see who and what inspires all the guitarists on this site. I'm loving listening to all these examples, some of which are new to me - and all great guitar sound examples.

Yes indeed a very interesting thread guys. And a very interesting thing... to sit for a while and try and decide which guitar tone just "does it" for each of us. I think if I had to take one tone to a desert island it would be something like the one on this Rush track...

Some great tone merchants in this thread.

It is quite tough to choose just one.  I was tempted to go with Ritchie Blackmore - made in japan period which definately inspires me.  But I am a huge Dream Theater fan - so it has to be John Petrucci for me.

This is a bit of a long tune so if you can't take too much prog metal the solo at about 3.15 shows some promise.

I know that these three might not impress everyone and they are not often mentioned together, but for me the three big ones are, without any particular order:

Neil Young

Jimmie Vaughan

Bill Frisell

This is off the wall good - the capturing of a live performance is some of the best I've ever seen, and that guitar TONE - tele through a Marshall!!!!
