IT’S NO MYSTERY THAT TONE MONSTER Warren Haynes consistently scores high in our annual Readers’ Poll, and he keeps the ragin’ sounds blazing throughout guest spots, solo gigs, his annual Christmas jam for charity, and his stints with Gov’t Mule and the Allman Brothers Band.

This comparison of high- and low-end Haynes rigs is based on the gear he was using at the time of his December 2006 GP cover story (prices shown are “street”).
