Leslie West - The Guitar Tone Legend

It's time for another guitar tone legend - Leslie West. This guitarist is a „concentrate” of best blues, rock and heavy metal things. You can find in his songs just whole history of rock music. Heavy, memorable riffs and awesome, really fat tone are typical for Leslie's music.

Leslie is a great part of The Mountain band. He's got also many good solo projects.

He is a very influential person for other guitarists - like Eddie Van Halen, Michael Schenker or Richie Sambora.

Leslie is well known from using Les Paul Junior guitars (my wiring mod). He's using also Flying V (another of my wirings), his signature guitar made by Dean, or some headless stuff from Steinberger and Ed Roman.
