Any guitar with a humbucking pickup in the bridge position is a great choice here. The humbucker provides plenty of clarity and power when playing through a modern hi gain tone.

For amps, any modern high gain tube amp is the right choice here. Crank up the gain to give you some thick meaty distortion, perfect for dropped-D riffing. You'll also need some chorus for guitar 2's octave parts, and a wah-wah to shred the solo. Check out the settings I used:

Modern Hi Gain Model: Drive: 80% Bass: 50% Mid: 45% Treble: 60% Presence: 65%

Chorus (guitar 2): Rate: 20% Wet/Dry Mix: 40%

Tuning (low to high): D A D G B E
