I'm using a Telecaster electric guitar to play this tune, but any electric guitar will do the trick. Select the bridge pickup for a brighter tone.

As far as amps go, any Vox style tube amp set up for an edge of breakup tone is suitable. Set the Drive to 75%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 65%.
For Guitar 1, step onto a Treble Booster or Overdrive pedal for more gain and sustain in the solo section.

I used a 10-46 string gage, with a heavy pick so I can dig into those licks and fills. Add some reverb for depth.

Here are the settings I used:

Vox AC 30 Top Boost Model:
Drive: 75% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 65%
Treble Booster:
Vol: 75% Tone: 75%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 40%
