There are many guitar players out there spending a small fortune to replicate his tone as much as possible.

Its very understandable, he does have an amazing tone. Aside that I'm not a fan of trying to replicate someones tone aiming 100%, SRV used incredible energy when playing. This might be the main reason we refer to most of the tone coming from the players hands.

Among other things. Eventually many aspects of great guitarist gear become truth or legend or myth. PremiereGuitar has an article found here about string myths, http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/String_Myths_Part_1 , which include SRV thick strings equal better tone.

SRVs string choice is in the same vein as gear setup. Simple truth is that his tone was all aspects of his playing from hands to string to amp to speaker choice to guitar to his thoughts and feel. Still, without a helluva lot of practice I'll never play 13s like SRV did on the Vids of the Blues Fest he did in Paris.

I like to learn how to create a semblance of a tone, why they have effects in a certain chain, how they use a 5 band EQ and how it sounds pre amp or in the effects loop. What amps and tubes and speaker combinations different guitarists used and how that effects tone. But I like nitty gritty. If your using an emulator, plugin, or something like an AxeFx, I think understanding how someone got certain tones helps one find their own sound or create tones they like.

I have a video lesson from Andy Timmons. And his discussion how he creates his tones was as interesting as learning ideas on technique and phrasing.

I could listen to and watch SRV all day. His right hand technique blows my mind and his Strat, well for me it's the daddy of all Strats
Favourite album is Couldn't Stand The Weather, love the rhythm on the title track.
