I'd say that's a style, not a tone. Your hands affect your tone, i agree, but you're not gonna make a recto sound like a marshall or whatever. Yeah, you'll sound like you, but you aren't going to change the signature characteristics of your amp and other devices in your signal chain.This. Yes, you amp sound can change, but you are still fundamentally you tonally, no matter what. There are certain guys I can recognize right after the first lick or two. For example, I never knew Stevie Ray Vaughn played an acoustic tune on a 12-string, until I heard "Life By The Drop", but I knew it was him with the lick he played to start the song. Loomis definitely has a signature sound, and whenever he takes a lead, there is that same aggressive attack, pushed on top of the beat immediacy, and stinging pick attack that is his hallmark.
