Any guitar with a humbucker pickup in the bridge position will be the ideal choice here. The humbucker provides plenty of clarity and power when playing through some thick distortion.

For amps, an overdriven or distorted Marshall style tube amplifier will be a great choice. You'll want to crank it up to get some nice tight overdriven crunch, but nothing too fuzzy or heavy metal sounding. Check out the settings I used:

Marshall Plexi model: Drive: 95% Bass: 40% Mid: 55% Treb: 65% Presence: 70%
