How to create this sound?

I was listening to this song, by Mazzy Star

https://youtu.be/itHc2Pb_Up0

After the guitar riff, there's a low kinda guitar sound, it's also used in the solo. Is it a steel lap?

Does anyone know how I would re-create this sound?

Thanks!

Microphone pretty far away from the speaker, maybe even in another room.

Electric guitar connected to electric guitar amplifier, connected to a speaker cabinet.
A microphone placed far away from that speaker cabinet, connected to a microphone amplifier, connected to your audio interface.

Or do you want to recreate it in the box ?

Do you want to do this out of the box (put a speaker in a room with an actual microphone at a distance and then record that) or do you want to simulate this in the box (in your computer, using only plugins)?

Preferably on my computer using plugins, yes!

OK
Then your choice of dry electric guitar samples.
Like this one for example:


There are effect plugins for amplifiers and speaker simulators and of course reverbs (some of these are free and excellent).
For the reverb only use the wet signal.

I use the guitar rig 5 plugin. Obviously I can mess around with speaker simulators but what kind of amp should I be going for, for this kind of sound?

Something from the 70s maybe.
It will be very hard to get close to that sound, so you will have to experiment and tweak for a long time.
But if it is your passion and if you love it... Time will fly fast.
