So many influences combining to make the unique sound that only Andy Summers makes.
Are we talking just guitar tone - like one note played and rung out and you'd know - or a more general sound including phrasing and style?
Can't believe he's not already been mentioned. (or maybe I missed it)
I know he can be 'polarizing', but, love him or hate him, Jeff Beck is one of the most instantly recognizable IMO.
Personally, I love him.
A guitarist who you would recognize immediately even on a recording you'd never heard before.
For me, easily Jerry Garcia and Mark Knopfler.
Santana I think but have you ever heard his rhythm guitarist solo? Had a PRS and sounded like Santana - though I don't know Santana that well.
Gilmore and Edge most likely.
Derek Trucks maybe
Bill Frisell I hope.
David Rawlings, really no one sounds like him.
It's a big guitar world but immediately thought of 10+ when I saw the Beato clip some time ago.
Easy for me....T-Bone Walker, SRV, Hendrix, Jimmie Vaughan, BB King, Albert King, Jerry Garcia, Sonny Landreth, Albert Collins, Roy Buchanan, The Edge, Santana (unless the Stones' "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" is playing), Duane Eddy, Billy Gibbons, Knopfler, Dick Dale, Roger McGuinn, Setzer, and....
.... like Thunder58 noted, Boston!
Of course there are many icons like Jimi, SRV, J. Page, etc... which have inspired many others that came close to originals, but some developed a very unique style that didn't become a classic style on their own. To me this list must contains the ones (without modern clones) I know + many more to add I forgot :
Brian Setzer, yees!
Rowland S Howard
And Blixa Bargeld is pretty recognisable.
Neil Young's style is as unique as his voice. One of a kind.
I'm surprised more on this forum did not mention the "precious" (Brian Setzer), ha!
