    So many great players with great LP tone! I'm a big fan of many of the guys mentioned here; Green, Kossoff, Gibbons, Betts, Allman, Bloomfield, Bonamassa, etc. But, IMHO, the LP tone we're talking about here all started with Clapton/Beano. Some of these other great players picked up a Lester all because of EC's tone on that album.

    Gary Richrath. I joined an REO Speedwagon tribute band, and just keep getting blown away by his tone. Some may disagree, but I'm digging it.

    Richrath,Moore & Slash are my favorites .
    Nobody ever mentions Mick Jones of Foreigner & Spookytooth. He has great tone.

    Slash, Kossoff, Gary Moore, Dean Deleo, JD Simo, Bernie Marsden, it seems to change frequently.

    I found with my 59 les paul replica, my Demeter TGA Inverter 2, a Malekko Ekko 616 in the loop, along with my 65 Amps Whiskey cab G12H30 2x12 cab; I can cop almost any tone I want. It's all in how you dial everything in.
