    Maybe this will end the thread?
    We all know what a Les Paul Custom sounds like, right?


    Oh no we don't!!!! :D

    Here is my LP Custom. I'm playing "in the style" of a violin and using the Hungarian Minor scale, and using some effects but I think my hands are doing the work!

    If individual tone is not in the hands, how come some players it's obvious regardless of guitar and amp setting? Wether Jimi plays a Strat or a Gibson, it still sounds like Jimi.

    I would say it's due to technique and playing style in those cases. Which obviously is independent of the equipment they are using. Combine those things with their preferred gear and well there ya go.

    Here
    Just came back from the hardware store and will be spending the evening painting a bedroom eggshell white.

    But first a couple pepperoni Hot Pockets.

    Then the paint roller will be in my hands.







    Don't need Facebook when my life's story is here.

    yeah, let's not equate tone to style :eek:
    that could provide the basis for an entire area of pointless conversation

    maybe even an ongoing thing with threads popping up now and then going
    over and over the same old arguments, and we don't want that, now do we?

    I think saying tone is in your hands is taking it too literally. Tone comes from the electronics and accuracy and style like Monkeyboy said is more to do with your hands.

    I think the deeper discussion involves voice vs. tone.

    Any newb can replicate a good or great tone.

    I think having a voice is way cooler than tone


    Monte, you rock my man.

    You can call yourself whatever you want. When a plurality of people call you something, you might actually be that. :D

    I just looked at both of my hands carefully. Not one stinking tone.

    Tone is definitely in my hands. Whenever my hands move the pickup selector or tone knobs on my guitar, the tone changes. :D

    i was trying to get people to call me Bagwan back in the 80s but all they'd agree to was "bag head".
