This song is played with three different guitars. The 1st guitar is an electric, preferably a Les Paul or something similar with humbuckers and a nice bold sound.

Guitar 2 is an electric, preferably with a piezo pickup, recorded direct. This gives it a super clean, almost glassy sound. I used my Godin LGXT which has has a piezo pickup in the bridge. Guitar 3 is a steel string acoustic for yet another new timbre. I played my Taylor 714-CE and miced it with a Rode NT-2.

For an amp I recommend something with tubes so you can get that clean tone with just a bit of natural breakup when you hit it hard. I am using my Fender Princeton with the gain set to about 4, treble all the way up, mid and bass at 5 and reverb at 2.
