Any electric guitar with a humbucker pickup in the bridge position is suitable to play this song. The humbucker provides plenty of power and clarity for crunch riffing and soaring leads.

As far as amps go, a Mesa-Boogie style tube amp is the perfect choice. Guitar 1 and 3 are set for clean, with a touch of grit, while Guitar 2 is set for thick, heavy crunch. Guitar 3 also uses a univibe and tremolo effect, to make it shimmer out of the mix a bit more.
I recommend a 10-46 string gage and medium to heavy picks, so you can keep the riffs tight with a snappy attack! Here are the settings I used:

Dual Rectifier Model:
Drive: 85% Bass: 45% Mid: 50% Treb: 55% Presence: 65%
(Guitar 1 : Set Drive to 30%)
Univibe/Trem TBD
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 30%

TUNING: (low to high): D A D G B E
