Yeah, his tone is amazing.


Btw, Ive been meaning to ask for a long time. What brand/model guitar is that he uses? I cant ever get a good look at the name on the headstock, and I dont completely recognize that head design from the angles they show on tv.

Custom built by one of the top Luthiers in LA, I believe. He has three of them.

I really like Petrucci's sound. And Adam Dutkiewicz and Joel Stroetzel's sound. They use Framus Cobras, which are gained out, yet they're so clear. They also use some high class guitars too.

there's some more, but those are the ones that immediately come to mind.

Well this thread is the anti-thesis to the other.


Whether it be artist, or non-artist (and any combo of guitar/amp if that is what you want to post, or if you just want to post them individually), what is the Best Tone you have ever heard?
Some of my favorites:

Jimmy Page's Telecaster on "Stairway to Heaven"
Eric Johnson on just about anything, but notable "Cliffs of Dover"
Jimmy Page on "Ten Years Gone"
Dave Gilmour on "Comfortably Numb"

My favorite is probably Phil Keaggy on the live version of "What a Day".

A lot of the chet atkins I have heard could have used better tone in the recordings at least. I realize technology was a limitation and the man was a wizard on guitar, but aside from tone being in the fingers, recordings of him I haven't been too impressed by the tone of his instrument.

He shows them all on his website, and Chesh is right, custom made, by a luthier from Puerto Rico....his guitars are the most gorgeous I've seen.

yes, but i have a recording of him that is really good quality and he just tears it up. Tone to die for, well at least in my opinion

As far as tones go, Lincoln Brewster and Tom Morello have the best overall tone. I have no clue how lincoln gets his tone live playing through a POD. Go figure.

I can tell you from having listened to him speak a number of times about playing. It all comes from God - period! His tone is just a by-product of that gift. But, he has spent many years perfecting his tone, from his '57 Fender Strat Reissues with Dimarzio Vintage Noiseless pickups to his partscaster, LP's, to the POD (and what's wrong with POD?), his amps, you name it. He has invested a lot of time working with his gear and he said he has spent countless hours tweaking the POD. He makes me want to get one, but I don't have the kind of time a professional like him has to do all that; much less practice.

But I know he has spent many hours in prayer and in the Word, listening to what God has to say to him. Someone asked him how he got his lyrics (since he is also a gifted songwriter) and his answer was simple. He opened his Bible for the words. His lyrics are always so simple and they are like quoting Scripture, which is what I also love about his music.
