I don't think I've seen anyone here mention Steve Howe of Yes...

I have too many guitarists I admire to literally have a favorite but Sir Howe certainly ranks high in my mind. What a versatile, creative guitar player!... Seemlessly fusing so many disparate styles together to form something very unique, innovative and visionary. So many things he played are quite modern and futuristic... Very ahead of his time in my opinion, especially when you look at what most guitarist were doing in like 1971-1973 - pretty phenomenal. Such an integral part of the total Yes sound and definately a true band member rather than a mere soloist using a band as a personal vehicle...

my 2 cents...

I'll second McLaughlin... What a beast. Larry Coryell - one tasty player as well.

Hey Christopher, To be honest I haven't been using it much. I like the Flextone better. [8D]
