King's X is one of the collest bands from the 90s (when we speak of guitar playing). Ty Tabor was both - using some classic rock influences and forced new experimental tools of expression. King's X has it all - groove, energy and a great way of expression. No matter how cool a modern shred can look, but bands like King's X has their specific kind of flow that is incomparable to any of modern guitar genres. I invite you to try out this one and find same flavor in playing, as a did for myslef.
Considering the period of their most popular songs, I personally relate Ty Tabor's tone with soft chorus and sort of "strat" bridge single coil tone. In this lesson I went for a strat and made a coil split. I believe it can still sound cool with a humbucker though. Just avoid too much gain from the amp - it would destroy the effect (will blurry) the moments of percussive s trums and harmonics. On the slow video I went for a raw, non-chorus tone for a better clarity for your personal, detailed playing analysis.
Important notice for improvisation.
While most of the song you can use D-minor scale, there a transposition to E-minor in the part 4 (let's call it "chorus part"). You should literally switch to E-minor scale as well.
