OK! Clapton had his "Woman Tone" produced with an earliy 60's Paul and a Marshall Bluesbreaker combo amp. BB King and Lucille with those Gibson Combo amps, Carlos Santana with the PRS guitars and Mesa Boogies, All of these players have created a signature tone (I love Brian Setzer's echo drenched Bassmans with the Gretch guitars as well as Joe Pass' archtop and polytones) Whats' your favorite combination of guitars and amps/pedals to enable you to best express yourselves'. This applies to acoustic guitar set-ups as well as electrics. Whatever suits your needs and desires, post them here, I'm curious to know. Best Regards, TJ Sullivan

I love my Line6 AxSys 212 with the foot pedal, mainly because I get to pick and choose different amps, rearrange them, and edit the sounds to my liking. With a bit of tweaking, I can get this amp to sound good with anything I plug in - I'm not talking just electric guitars, but also my bouzouki, sazes, cittern and kora!

I always loved Steve Howe's Gibson ES-175 through a pair of Fender Twins. Not sure what his delay set up was or how the stereo aspects were mixed, but I love that tone.

Whatever rig it is that Monte Montgomery uses. He's a wizard, to say the least. I know there's tubes in there somewhere, because he puts Hendrix to shame in riding the feedback dragon.. (with an acoustic, mind you). He's anything and everything anyone ever wanted to be on a guitar, including that of God-like status.
To hear Monte Montgomey playing "Little Wing" is a slice of Heaven.

Thanks Cisco! Monte's really making a name for himself as is well deserved. I just find it so cool when examining great players rigs as to what is going on there. I mean from the simplest of rigs that produce great signature tones from BB King to Brian Setzer to God knows who, it's so cool. One thing I have noticed is that the really great players in the lot, so to speak, can probably make the most of ANY rig sound great! There's just so much to be said for the power of two hands. This said, a cat like Monte Montgomery would probablay sound good through a Fender Champ and that beat guitar he plays. Thanks for the response. Regards, Tj

While I do think that the rig plays somewhat of a role in getting the sound of a player, I think it's more the actual hands and the player themselves.

The most recognizable players that I can think of, are recognizable more by the notes they play and how they play them than being based on a specific guitar or amp.

Yes better equipement will yield great results, but a killer player will sound good no matter what.

That's my belief anyway.

Jody.... you are actually quite right in many ways. I remember having a disussion like this with fellow "Montiacs" a while back, and someone brought up a concert they attended years ago which had Ted Nugent and Van Halen playing at the same place.
The story has it that Ted decided to give Eddie's rig a go-around... and evidently on Van Halen's rig Ted sounded a helluva lot like Ted Nugent.
Yet, there are larger differences in rigs to be found. Monte Montgomery fascinates me in the fact he's delivering classic rock flash and fatness at one moment, then beautiful, clean acoustic the next. How he harnesses his feedback so controllably (at very high concert volume levels) with an acoustic is nothing short of amazing to me. And, once again... it's all a part of technique and years of experimentation.
All I can say is that I've never seen a more incredible live musician in my entire life. (I'm 42, as of a couple days ago)

I've not heard of Monte Montgomery, but I can tell you this, if you noticed his performance, he was probably moving around to different parts of the stage to get different kinds of feedback.

What happens is that during sound check they tape the floor with markers to let him know where on stage he's going to get the certain types of feedback he knows he needs. That way he knows where to stand on stage to get a certain tone from the feedback. It's not random, it's very calculated and he's probably got his guitar tech very trained to know what to do in order to mark the correct spot on the stage.

Hope that helps you.

Jody, Montgomery was featured in Guitar Player Mag a couple of months ago. He plays an incrediblibly beat dreadnought sized acoustic that looks like Willie Nelson's Martin. Believe me, this dude can get feedback from the shower or the car wash with the rig he's got going. Duct tape? I don't think he needs to stand anywhere with his rig. The cool thing with feedback is (considering certain rigs) is how and when it's used. I'm thinking about hollow bodied guitars with certain amps that are overdriven and how it can become an integral part of the soundscape. I have seen Jeff Beck do this as well as having seen Jimi Hendrix on three sepatate occassions. I will testify it was never the same twice. This all goes back to the original thread in how special certain players' rigs are. With Nugent playing that Byrdland he can command feedback at will within a certain proximity from just about any overdriven rig. Ted Nugent surely is no stranger to duct tape on a floor, but not for a place to coax his guitar to obtain feedback and neither is Monte Montgomery. Tj
