I’m using a Les Paul style guitar set to the bridge pickup, but any guitar is suitable. The tones have more to do with the amp and effects choices.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amp is a desirable choice. Set the amp for a crunch sound. Set the Drive to 50%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 60%.

Guitar 2 uses a phaser effect for a cool swirling sound. Guitar 3 uses an overdrive pedal to get more gain and sustain for the leads. Use reverb on both guitars for depth.

I’m using 10-46 gage and with a heavy pick with both guitars.

Here are the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model:
Drive: 50% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 60%
Phaser (Guitar 2):
Rate: 35% Depth: 50%
Tube Screamer (Guitar 3):
Drive: 55% Tone: 70% Level: 60%
Reverb: WetDryMIX: 40%
