Frank Sampedro and Neil Young!
Viv Campbell's tone on Last In Line's Heavy Crown album is right up my alley.
And always Randy's tone, esp on Diary side 2 deep cuts like Little Dolls and Tonight.
OH BOY, are you ever in for a treat. In addition to @mudface 's and @DotStudio 's recommendations, I submit for your aural enjoyment:
My own, with LP Trad Pro IV (57 Classics) to Helix with Hiwatt D100 selected, little bit of Tube Screamer, EQ to fatten mids, some room reverb, slight bucket brigade delay.
Not sure the guitar comes through the mix all that well.
Pastor Jason (http://www.benyahu.com/) is also in that mix with a really nice Paul Reed Smith and pedal board, all pretty much analog--he plays most of the Electric 1
The lead vocalist is Charity Von--you might know her from American Idol
I'm a strat guy, but I'm liking this LP think more and more...
I tried to emulate lots of players doing the cover band thing. Not gigging as I'm on call too much. Don't miss that elusive search. Now I use what equipment/skills I have to create a vibe of my own. Isn't that what it's all about?
Bjorn Gelotte of In Flames. Still sounds great. The tone on the Clayman album (from a while back but similar on more current stuff) is perhaps my favorite metal tone.
Oh yea. I forgot about Charlie Star from Blackberry Smoke. Juniors count, don't they?
I happen to love all of your Heroes listed above but for a little new school how bout the 2 Hawkins brothers from the band the The Darkness, they get amazing les paul tones, classic 70's/80's tones if you ask me. I use my Jvm and my les paul standard with a 83 ts9 for a little boost.
I still get chills when I listen to AFD.
Those fills on Sweet Child, Jesus Christ....
Randy Rhoads' tone. Loved it ever since I first discovered him.
BFG’s tone with Pearly on the first few ZZ Top albums is just do to die for. If you’re a LP fan and that tone doesn’t stir your soul....
I’m also into Bernie Marsden’s tone when playing his 59, The Beast. Not so much from the early Whitesnake recordings, but more so from what you can see/hear Bernie doing nowadays on YT when he’s just playing The Beast by itself or with a jam track. The pure tone that comes from that guitar is pretty spectacular.
I also really love Gary Moore’s LP tone when he’s playing blues/blues rock using Stripe and/or Greenie (I actually like Stripe better). That gained up PAF thing (neck and bridge) he has going on just works for me on so many levels.
(Late edit to add vids)
Still the king!
Live Cream is the Gibson tone I love.
Kossoff tone and his style of soloing.
Maybe a NGD in the future???
The cat in Atlanta Rhythm Section with the GT. Forgive me not knowing his name... and Bonamassa and Warren Haynes for sure.
slash's use your illusion tone , the reason i play les pauls
