A semi-hollowbody electric guitar is the authentic choice to play this tune. Choose the bridge pickup for more bite and clarity.

As far as amps go, any Vox style tube combo amplifier is a perfect choice. Setup the amp for a gritty clean-on-the-edge-of-breakup sound. Set the Drive to 40%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 65%.

I used a 10-46 string gage, with a heavy pick so I can dig into the rhythms and leads.

Here are the settings I used:

Vox AC15 Model:
Drive: 40% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 65%
For Guitar 2 - set Drive control to 60% for more sustain and bite.
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 35%
