What ever setup Becker used, it added so many dynamics to the guitar. Kind of reminds me of Nuno on Pornograffitti. I know the player has a lot to do with the sound, but that distortion is over the top

Me through my V-Amp Pro, then Allan Holdsworth, then Guthrie Govan.

Slash is just ... bleh! Run of the mill rock guitarist. Come on, Aussie!

OK, Alfie. Guthrie has some of the finest tone known to man, he uses Cornford and Suhr. Coupled with his technique... man, are you insane!!?

Too many guys have great tone, I think that, in part, is why we know who they are. If they had crappy tone, they'd be less likely to have a gig.

Also, no tone discussion is complete with out throwing in that "Tone is in the fingers."

That said, my list is pretty long.
*David Gilmour
*Nuno (Porno & III sides)
*Gutherie
*Garsed & Helmrich (Quid Pro Quo tones)
*Yngwie
*Pettruci
*"IA"
*Eric Johnson, OF COURSE!
*Satch's tone on Blue Dream and Surfing.
*ANGUS, I really do like the simple straight ahead crunch he gets.
*I don't know the name of the musicians that played on these 2 albums, but the uber stratty 2nd position tone on "Big Log" from "Principal of Moments" and "Ship of fools" from "Now and Zen". (great playing too)
*Dave Uhrich
*EVH 5150 album Tone
*Santana "Europa" tone
*Michael Romeo (Mesa Triaxis tone rules)
*HIM's Linde, just because of some of the sounds he gets are so odd and buzz saw like, that I have no clue on how to obtain them.
*John 5 & Trent Reznor's grind and buzz saw again. (whoever plays for Trent)
*Dick Dale (not a tough one, but I love that surf sound)
*Clapton's 80's remake of "After Midnight" tone
*Mindcrime's Tone, again, not really a tough sound to emulate, but the guitars grab you.
* cKy's octaved riffing.
I'm sure I could come up with more, but you get the picture.

I have a lot of influences with respect to tone and musical direction.'
In most cases the tone is dictated by the player's ability to pull it out of the gear he/ she uses.
