A good guitarist can make nearly any setup sound good, but no amount of skill will ever make Fender Princeton sound like a Dual Rectifier. Tone comes from the gear, the quality of...

I've owned a couple of Dr Zs never quite bonded with any of them. Cut through the mix like you wouldn't believe, but there was a harshness I could never dial out without turning the amp into mud....

Quality is really hit and miss with the Mexican ones. I've seen a lot of incredibly sloppy uneven fretwork and a lot of really sharp edges

Mark IV.

The singer does. Dave uses a Mesa Lonestar and a Fender Twin though.

Lonestar would be a good choice. Might be able to get an older one for about 1k but that might be a stretch.

Start playing along with a metronome. Pay attention to where the downbeat is and where you're starting each phrase. Makes transcribing to guitar pro MUCH easier.
