I choose Vai, I always loved his tone, from his Carvin X100b to his Bogner days to the present Carvin Legacy days, he uses effects so well it's incredible, and I choose Lynch cuz well, his tone always smokes, in your face smashin bashin tone, cheers :)

I was listening to Eric Johnson the other day. His tone is just...incredible. Especially when he plays with distortion; it's just so smooth and thick. Amazing. But I voted for Satch on the poll.

I totally agree with you, there is something about Eric's sound and tone that is just amazing, it's also in his fingers and the way he frets, simply....amazing.

Yeah. It really is in the fingers. He just plays an everyday Stratocaster, but he doesn't have an everyday tone, so to speak. haha :)

Like Billy Barty said in that Hobbit rip-off movie- pick your own finger! I prefer my own tone. I really like Vai's and Gilbert's too. And leaving Eddie Van Halen off this list is simply negligent. ;) Much time and money has been spent, and still does get spent, trying to copy Ed's tone from early VH stuff.

I'm really liking Paul Gilbert's tone on SFBADR at the moment, and Petrucci's tone on Pull Me Under has been chugging in my head alot lately, but i'm sure that something else will get stuck in my head sooner or later and my current favourites will change.

If I could add a few i'd suggest Robert Fripp, Andy Summers, David Gilmour and Alex Lifeson. For metal tones Dave Murray and Michael Amott.

Rock on!

From that list, Paul gilbert, JP, Vai, Malmsteen , exceptional for Vai, I hated his tone when he uses carvin, not from that list Guthrie govan and greg howe.
