How do you get a bluesy SRV tone. I was told a tube amp. Well I don't have a tube amp, all I have is a Fender princeton 65 DSP (thats what it says on the front I have a washburn kc-40v guitar that i bought like 12 years ago. Is there anything I could buy that will give more of a bluesy tone, other than a new amp and guitar that is. (I am expecting my tax refund any day now

Try selecting a tone setting on your amp that has just a slight amount of overdrive. Don't use any effects, maybe just a small amount of reverb.
Set the tone controls of your amp at:

bass/lows = 65%,
mids = 50%,
treble/highs = 60%.

Turn up the amp loud and your guitar full blast on the volume and tone controls. Use the neck or middle pickup and play hard with strong finger vibrato. This should get you close.

I have one of those amps too, and it does have a drive knob.

I think it would help alot to get a Fender Strat (or one of it's cheap imitators). Put really thick strings on it and tune to Eb instead of E. I read that somewhere once and it made a huge difference!
