I’m a subscriber to the theory above that players get the tone they get if the equipment is even close to adequate. Last year when EVH passed, there were several anecdotal accounts of EVH picking up any guitar connected to any amp and sounding like EVH. There were also several accounts of other players picking up EVH’s guitar plugged into his amp rig, but not sounding anything like EVH. I’m not a dedicated Bogert follower, but I’ve heard enough of his playing to suspect he was one of those players that sounded like himself on almost anything he played. I’m sure he had his preference for getting a specific fuzz buzz when the gear was available, but made his tone by hand when the specific tools were not available.
