use alot of acoustic guitar for rhythm. like maybe acoustic verses and electric chorus, stuff like that. when recording, try using a 12 string or record a 6 string and copy the same part over top and shift it just enough to add depth.

acoustic and electric combo is good. slide guitar is good. slightly overdriven warm tones are nice.

You need more than one guitar for sure. Two leads can help, because most southern rock relies on harmony guitar parts.
