How to get Steve's sound:


If you want to go with the EXACT guitar, use a Gibson Les Paul.  
effect-wise, use a Big Muff fuzz pedal and a volume pedal, with the 
chain being guitar ---> volume ---> Big Muff ----> amp.  Be sure to set 
the "sustain" or gain control on the Muff at a high level, but don't 
make it too trebly.  get a good swampy reverb sound (my amp is a 
Fender Twin Reverb, and using my amp's reverb, I'll set it at around 6) 
and you're all set.
