    Fair enough. It has been said that Jimmy Pages tone would make you cringe if you heard it in a guitar store.

    Well put, I pretty much agree with you. My observation (ever since I became a self-professed gear head to notice) is that here in LA, generally speaking, young bands that are outwardly experimental, risk-taking, non-formulaic in their song-writing tend to have basic (or even sh*tty) gear. While those that have top-notch boutique tend to be basic and predictable. Most are in cover bands. Nothing wrong with that, just thinking about Morello's overall point. Sometimes its a bit comical when you see a guitar player with great gear play pretty bad, they seems to care about gear more so than improving their playing or musical imagination.
