Well the ENG's do have a slightly limited tone quality that you will get. Most of those guitarists use Humbuckers or single coil pickups to get those tones. Such as DiMarzio and the like. But it can be done with a lot of tweaking. I will try and make some time to have a listen to the tunes you mention and see if I can find something close in the POD xt to what you are trying to do. Be aware though that it will take some knob twisting on your part to refine the tone once you find an amp model that is close to what you need.

There are a lot of midrange tones in there so starting with a Marshall High Gain is going to be a good place to start. You can also try the Buhda emulation as well since it gives a very sweet midrange sound and sustain without a lot of distortion.

There are probably a couple others here who might be able to help pinpoint and amp model to start with, so be patient as weekends can be a bit slow during the summer months.

And welcome to HRC

thnx alot bro
i tried getting help from korean cafes and guitar community sites, but didn't get the answers i needed. They all told me to check out the Line6 custom tone library, but i didn't get anything close to what i wanted there. Anyways thnx from helping, and btw, im new to the PODxt live.
How do you know if the amp simul is marshall or mesa boogie and so on. :P

btw, Daita uses Tom Anderson for Triptych
and Neil Zaza uses Seymour Duncan SH-1 and SH-11 and to help a bit, he uses fulltone's fulldrive2 for his distortion. thnx again for helping :D

Not exactly what you asked for but this is an oustanding collection of POD tones.
