    Obviously the timbre is in the fingers because you use your fingers to make the strings move. And technique is in the equipment because an apt engineer had to design it. And that takes great technique.

    Or until AI builds an app that changes your tone into all the tone gods out there.

    Tone is and always will be.

    Some people suck and some do not.

    That is it. That is all there is to it.

    So...

    To boil it down, to a nutshell...

    We are looking to differentiate Tony from Timber. Well...

    Here's Tony Lo Bianco...

    [​IMG]

    ...and the "Tony" he won...

    [​IMG]

    Now - and the difference is clear... here's some timber...

    [​IMG]

    So, you see, Tony and timber are quite distinctly different. And as whosit said upthread, that is an end of it.

    well if you have like the cheapest wallmart guitar + combo starterpack and hand it to say Angus Young, Keith Richards or James Hetfield it will not only sound great it will sound like them...but I wonder what they would start to upgrade, guitar or amp ... I´m guessing guitar
