I think the foot controller that Fractal makes is essential, there are other on the market but the Fractal unit has more options and is easier to work with. Be sure to get a Cat5 cable to power it and a few Mission expression pedals for Wah (w/ switch), Volume, etc. I play through a QSC K12 on a Tripod and love the sound but some guys on the forums prefer Atomic amps and cabs.
The only part of the Axe I can't get quite right is a Mu-Tron effect and have considered using an outboard analog pedal. There is an effects loop in the Axe but you could also use the Voodoo Labs rack switcher if you wanted to go further.
Of course the guitar matters. A decent Strat into the Twin Reverb model w/ d120's will get you pretty close, especially if you're chasing an early 70's tone. Anything more and you're going down the rabbit hole but that's another thread.
