    Not narrowing it down to bassist... though bassist are a plus. I like to hear the Whammy in action, I'd like to own one, but it's very low on the priority list.

    The only examples I can think of offhand are Prong on the Rude Awakening album, and Pantera's last release.

    Sorry to write Don't say Tool/RATM/Audioslave big and in the headline is because whenever I say something like that inside the thread, people ignore it. Example: In my "Music that sounds like drugs" thread, I said "No Mars Volta" and after that I got 2 (or more) posts telling me how awesome the Mars Volta are....

    I believe I'm hearing one from both Steve Vai and Joe Satriani on the newest G3 DVD release.
