To be quiet honest, I spent a lot of time on this forum just reading . You can learn more here about chasing Bobby tone there anywhere else. All these questions have been asked and answered for years.
The Roland idea, I purely credit Mike Kaufman. He wrote his thoughts on the amp on this forum a long time ago. I read it, searched one down for cheap and said wtf, I will give it a try and low and behold, got me a lot closer than where I was with my mesa boogie. The Roland does a great job for small places, for larger places I used a roland jc120h with two 12 in cabs.does a very nice job for me. The Jazz I pick is essential. Eaton said it, I have been using it and I believe it...right hand technique with the use of that pick can help you get a lot closer without buying anything (other than the pick). I was skeptical at first, but I am a believer now and thats all I use now.
I think 85% of it is in your hands. Need to be able to approximate some of his technique and voicings to get close. A good guitar with an HSH set up is a great start. Nice clean amp , a good chorus, overdrive and delay are the basics in my opinion.
You can spend $10,000 or more chasing tone..... invest time in your playing.
