What was said above. For example, in many Metallica albums the clean tone is through Roland Jazz Chorus.

Yay! So glad someone posted about the HH IC100. So many UK bands used that amp in the 70's: T.Rex, The Buzzcocks, Sweet, Bauhaus, Big Country... Pushed with a treble booster these amps are legendary.

A good portion of all of Prince's guitar work is direct to the board after pedals. Purple Rain is a few Boss pedals into the board.

Pretty much all of Adrian Belew's work with The Talking Heads was done through a Roland JC-120.

Tons of jazz guitar recordings are an archtop guitar straight into some Evans or Polytone solid state amp.

Dee Murray of Elton John’s band used a phaser through a Pignose amp for his bass on “The Bitch is Back”.

One of the reasons you can’t find or afford a Sunn Beta series anymore is because Red Fang used them so much early on.

john martyn was all ss later in his career. made some astonishing music. much more about the music than the “guitar tone”, but it’s impossible to separate the two.
