Famous guitarists trademark gear & tone

We are all looking for the Tone Grail. Right? Well, the classic (and maybe only, after all) way to find our own tone is to experiment, try, test-play, over and over again, hit the shops, seek... That may be the genuine way to acquire experience on the subject. But we may also get some inspiration elsewhere. Nothing better than asking the guitarists that succeeded which amps, guitars and effects they like the most. The so-claimed very best guitar players of all time must have got it right... Let's check out what gear suits their needs!
I've looked around, read some threads on the cliché "Top 10 guitarists of all time", and tried to catch the names that show up consistently on these clearly subjective answers. After that, I've collected a couple of sites that discuss the gear & equipment each one uses/used. Some sites are dedicated to an artist or even the artist's gear alone; other are some sort of guitar player's gear database. Scroll down! And enjoy ;)
