Most of those guys use telecasters with Fender Twin Reverbs. The lead guitar player for Dowsing uses a Gibson Firebird and a Musicman HD130 head.

Basically, take any Fender/Squier with single coils and plug it into a Fender tube amp and then boom, there's the tone. Some dudes run an overdrive like a Boss SD-1, Ibanez TS-9, Fulltone Full-Drive 2 for their gain sound.

You can get a Squier strat or tele for like $150 used, a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe for like $350 used and then any of those pedals for between $50-$100 used.

As far as EQ... low-ish bass, medium mids, and medium to high treble.

The strat is fine, the Fender Frontman amps suck

This Peavey Valveking 1x12 would be great. It has a very Fender like clean channel and the gain channel is decent and does low/mid gain well. It is $199

Maybe one of Fenders pawn shop amps, the excelsior or the vaporizer or something along those lines. Failing that, a Fender Super Champ or Vibro chamo
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

Listening to the second clip: the guitars are clean but the bass is dirty, that balance is a HUGE part of getting this sound.

Regarding the drums - just play along with these songs until you get a feel for the right rides and fills. It's really simple stuff, but it's SUPER tight here. Tightness is more important than anything in this style, because the drummer keeps the sloppy guitars in check.

what amp would be good (for around $180) that can play gigs

Can you find a Fender Princeton Chorus? It's solid state but apparently it's a notch or two above a FM (I've never tried a FM). I gigged with one for years, ignorance is bliss, lol. But, seriously, I got some good tone outta the FPC, imo, and it served me well for years. I had a Boss Blues Driver in front and played a lotta grungy stuff but the cleans were passable and Fender-ish. Besides a Crate V series or Country Club, I doubt you're gonna get better cleans at drum volume for $180.
