What is a good example of Quack? Any song specific examples?
Well Dire Straights 'Sultan of Swing', Robert Plants 'Big Log'...lots of country songs....
Listen to Robert Cray.
This song is full of quack...the fills and especially the lead break.
Sultans like has already been mentioned and a lot of Clapton's stuff are probably the best examples.
The original album version was probably recorded in position 2 with a Dimarzio FS-1 in the middle and the stock 61 pickup in the bridge. The mismatched pickup combination sounds great, but it’s a little less quacky.
Later, he moved the FS-1 to the neck. In this video, he plays most of the song in position 2 with the stock bridge and middle pickups, then switches to the FS-1 neck for the solos at 3:37 and 5:07. I think this is quackier than the album version, and you can clearly hear the difference when he switches to the FS-1 alone.
Of course, Knopfler plays fingerstyle, and many of his notes are damped.

Beat me to it. It's just too tempting!
Pink Floyd " The Wall " album...when the children sing : " we don't need no education, we don't need no thought control"...
Listen to the clean chords being strummed.
