    Hard to argue with either. I’m a huge ABB and Kossoff fan.

    I’ll toss out there Clapton on the beano album. ‘All your love’ first thing that came to mind

    I like Dickie’s tone. That would be in my top 5 of PAF tones. Page of course - Heartbreaker? That might have been a tele

    Man, how could I have missed that?

    Gotta add Dan Toler too, the Betts/Toler burst tones on those Greg Allman solo discs from the 80s were awesome...

    Lot of that is reported to be Flying V as well. Still a paf though, but a korina V really does influence it.

    My two favorites would have to be The Reverend Billy G and Angus. Love that sound.

    Fleetwood Mac's Peter Green and Danny Kirwan.

    * Looks like @JLee beat me to the punch.

    I'll add Mick Taylor's tenure with the Stones. He and Richards had a great contrast in style and tone.

    And Eric Clapton's solo on While My Guitar Gently Weeps.

    The Allmans at Filmore East. Gibsons into Marshalls into JBL D120s.

    Probably later Michael Bloomfield as a close second. A Lester into a Twin.
