    Are you specifically looking for Tone Match help or for general help on achieving a similar tone?

    The Tone Match forum (where you've posted) is specific to the former... Might be better in the Axe Fx II forum of you're looking for the latter...

    Marshall or Peavey 5150 amp model and a compressor will get you far, as well as having the gain low enough to get that muted hammer-on sounding very articulated and rubber-band like.

    Just my opinion but the PRS Holcomb is pretty damn djenty bright. With the stock Alpha and Omega Seymour Duncan pickups in it I don't think your going to get what you're after. I have a Holcomb, I don't djent so I swapped pickups out for JB's. I use that guitar for drop C stuff only running 12's.
