I’m using a Les Paul set to the bridge pickup for a full, clear, and powerful tone.
As far as amps go, any Marshall style tube amp is a desirable choice. Crank up the amp for a medium crunch sound. Set the Drive to 65%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 65%.

For Guitar 3, crank the amp’s drive control all the way up, or kick in an overdrive or distortion pedal for more gain and sustain!

Add some reverb to all guitars for depth.

I’m using 10-46 gage with a heavy pick to attack those strums and arpeggiations.

Here are the settings I used:
Marshall Plexi Model:
Drive: 65% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 65%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 35%
