I'll be using my Gibson 335 on the middle and neck pickup to play this song since the humbuckers make it sound nice and full when I play so few notes at a time. If I was playing full chords this guitar would most likely be too "big" sounding for this song, but it works really nicely for this sparse triad part. I'll be running it through my ZT amp with a little bit of reverb.

For the solo, I'll be using the same basic setting, but with my amp turned up louder, so that I get just a little bit of overdrive. This is a very sweet sounding song, so you don't wanna bust out your meanest blues tone for the solo. Keep it kinda smooth, add a little extra reverb and try to play the role of the saxophone- even when you dial your gear.
