Hi all

I'm looking for a certain sound I've heard quite a bit now and I'm not sure if I'd be able to produce it with my current setup. I'm looking for that sorta Alter Bridge-like sounds, kind of like these:

After browsing through alot of vids on youtube most of the songs like this seem to be played on Gibsons, Ibanez's (spelling?) etc. but I've not seen it played on a Fender yet.

My current setup is a '57 RI Fender Strat with a Fender Super Champ XD, no effects or pedals whatsoever besides that. Do you reckon I can get this sort of sound, maybe with a pedal of some sort?

by putting the right distortion pedal in front of it you can a certain sound but nothing like the real thing.
In order to achieve that sound you really need a new amp and a guitar with humbuckers.
A hero of war, Yeah that's what I'll be
