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 thick modern distortion.

As far as amps go, any modern Hi-gain tube amp will be a great choice here. Crank that gain up to make the distortion thick and meaty, perfect for dropped power riffing. Guitar 2 uses some chorus and echo to add an ambient element to the mix. Check out the settings I used:

Modern Hi Gain Model: Drive: 80% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treble: 70% Presence: 75%

Chorus (Guitar 2): Rate: 20% Depth: 50% Wet/DryMix: 45%

Echo (Guitar 2): DelayTime: 407ms Feedback: 40% Wet/DryMix: 30%
