    Jimmy Page and the Slayer duo, Jeff and Kerry. Different kinds of tones for different kinds of music.

    Two main guys tone does it for me.

    I love Carlos Santana's new tone for how smooth and creamy it is. But I also love something about the raw Jimmy Page tone.

    .....Not to mention there licks are too righteous for us mere mortals.

    Slash, Zakk Wylde, and Jimmy Page....But when it comes to a really nice metal guitar sound I think my favorite is Kerry King.

    A Les Paul through a 50 watt Marshall model 1986 bass head. Can't forget the open back cabinet. Ala Duane Allman.

    Harpo I have to support you again on this one... Gilmour, Jimmy, Beck, Clapy. Jim & Co played great notes, feel, and phrasing but for sheer TONE no one has surpassed Carlos on that Moonflower album and his custom run Yamaha SG2000 through a Mesa Boogie (Mark I or IIB?). Many of the tracks like Europa and Black Magic Woman were live and the sustain and tone where literally out of this world... Earth's Cry Heaven's Smile.

    I used to own a Yammie SG2000 and sold it for something silly like $400 when I needed cash ...madness!... awesome high fret access, fantastic bridge, way beyond an ABR, grover style heads that had precision tolerance unlike grovers.

    I saw Santana live years later with a PRS and it was fairly boring .... the marathon album blew and so did his solos :-(

    Gotta be Jonny Greenwood, his tone could cut through wood... or maybe gilmour (with his p90 goldtop and tons of compression)- other end of the spectrum.

    As least in terms of blues, Freddie King's tone does it for me. :)
