Hi everybody. The Sadowsky and Ken Smith tones' threads made me think about this topic. Do you think there are respectable brands WITHOUT a signature tone? I mean, people talk about the Fender P and J tones, the Music Man tone, Rickenbacker, Sadowsky, Ken Smith, and Kubicki tones (just to name the ones that come to my mind first), but haven't heard about the Yamaha, Ibanez, Peavey or G&L tone (again, just to name a few. Any others?). What happens there? Do I have to read/search more about them or is it a true fact that adds/substracts value to a specific brand? Thank you in advance for your input!
