Just get some clean tube amp, a Big Muff, eventually some distortions and maybe an EHX POG (to get tones like on "Blue Orchid"). Other than that I'd say a guitar with singlecoils would do. Eastwood makes a replica of the guitar he is using most of the time.

digitech whammy pedal on solos, otherwise its just his magic fingers and a big muff pi. He uses cheap old guitars and amps he bought from Sears many years ago.

If you want a good idea on White's tones and equipment he uses watch the movie It Might Get Loud.

He uses the pog instead of the whammy these days I believe

Yeah get a fuzz and an octave pedal and you'll get pretty close if you drive the fuzz hard.

This +1 but more specifically he has used a 64 JB Montgomery Airline and a 60's Domino Dawson for amplification he uses a Sears Silvertone combo (valve amp). Any more info can be found here with screenies of him actually using it http://www.freewebs.com/thewhitestripesgoodpage/jackwhitestuff.htm

Turn the sustain on the muff all the way up, and the tone almost all the way down. Max out a small tube combo to the point of explosion, and buy a guitar for 49 pesos at your local pawnshop.

Congrats, you can now cover any White Stripes song.
