No.


Nothing special really, you just need the right amp settings to get their tone.

You can use any amp, my first amp, some Fender 30 watt job, i could get an AC/DC-ish tone out of it, you need to get the treble middle and bass tones correct, then use as little gain as possible, so that when you "attack" the strings, it sounds like you are using distortion and when you stroke the strings its sounds clean enough.

its all from the amps really. those bands could use almost any guitar with their amps and get a vintage sound. a marshall jcm/jtm/plexi is a good start lol
