Mike Stern - The Guitar Tone Legend

Mike Stern is a jazz / fusion guitarist with very interesting tone and gear. His music has got a lot of really groovy-bluesy-jazzy lines with a dynamic rhythm. I can hear in his work a mix of many techniques of guitar playing.
He's got his signature guitar, made by Yamaha. Stern is an often user of chorus, delay, distortion and few other types of effects. He like to play on solid state amps, Yamaha G100 (yeah, no tube).
