No. Well I'm not anyway. What I do say though is that the guitar sound you hear is served in a mix of electronic effect and other instruments. They all affect the outcome to a degree :)

Quoting Brian May : "When Hank played my guitar (the famous home made one), it sounded like Hank, it's the musician not the instrument."

Whatever you make of that, but I'm no expert.

Well i've just heard "That Sound", on BBC 2.
In my view "That Sound" was there up until Jet left the Shads.
Not to say that what came after Jet's departure was not amazing, but the sound was never the same.

Hi,
Like all of you ,I take great interest in Listening to members audio files and my ears "Prick up" when I hear a Really good Version of The early Hank sound.

IMHO two of the best are Suaraguitars "Wonderfull Land,and a version of "Cosy" by an Old French chap ,Whose name I have just Forgotten. SORRY.

Cheers

Met Colin Pryce-Jones and have watched the man play I was less than 10 feet away from him. He was a guest at the Shadows club in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire when I went there. Brilliant guitarist and definitely "has that sound and touch of Hank".

Just read this old thread and just had to comment.I have in the past 12 years ,since I rediscovered The Shadows,or more accurately trying to emulate Hanks sound,old and new,I have heard approx 6 or 7 sounds with various players who have got it right or as close as dammit is to swearing.The closest was Justin Daish at Warwick Shadows club,using the Meazzi echo and a vox amp.That was almost as if the man himself was there.The secret is the vintage gear,but also a very good player,and Justin is just that a very good player.The other times were odd moments,a club band for want of a better description ,again with a Vox amp and a copy of EOTP and Wonderfull Land ,the intro was spot on,and Roger Bayliss playing Frightened City at the Hankies club one night.There have been others,and there will be more in the future,but Hank cant replicate it,and if he cant,what chance do mere mortals stand.Also,if the list at the start is right ,how can you have "The Holy Grail" of a sound if you keep moving the goalposts.
