If you love appetite for destruction, you’ve probably tried to get slash’ tone on the album at some point. Obviously I don’t have his amp, but I think a simple (poor mans) way is to add a wah pedal as a filter, rolled slightly back, to a marshall combo, with your LP tone knobs also rolled slightly back.

Gibson Les Paul Standard – rhythm tone knob rolled back to 7, lead tone knob rolled back to 5
Marshall AVT 20 – gain 8, bass 9, middle 6, treble 6, reverb/depth 3
Dunlop cry baby wah – push fully forward to treble position, then roll slightly back (demonstration in the video)

riffs demonstrated in vid: sweet child, nightrain, paradise city, welcome to the jungle
song demos begin at 0:48, settings explained begin at 4:53
