2) JBLs in the deville
3) extension cab (opens up more possibilities for upgrading the rest)
4) preamp & some power amp
Depending if you're playing out or not you might want to switch to a more traditional single channel fender amp like a blues jr or a twin, or even an older mesa boogie if you're shooting for early '80s tone.

Guitar with Tiger/Wolf design of some kind.
Fender amp with JBLz, or a full blown Jerry-rig
Then all the "little" things: pedals, strings, picks.
All of this assumes the 10,000 hours, of course.
On the pick, I tried Adamas and Telefunken. I could not get rid of the static, tried all the tricks.
I tried a Gravity 2mm Mini Classic with the rough edge. Two years now, perfect for my thing.
I sm not going for a tribute sound but I want someone to hear the influence.
As always love the responses and the info.
