Any guitar with single coil pickups is a great choice for this tune. In fact, for this particular STP album, only guitars equipped with single coil pickups were used for the recording. It is also interesting to note that Dean Deleo plays this song live using a Les Paul, so no worries if you've only got a guitar with humbuckers.

As far as amps go, a VOX AC30 would be a great choice here. Dial in a mild crunch sound, enough to get some good string harmonics off the low string and some nice sustain for the solo. Add a touch of reverb to all guitars for some depth.
