GUITAR: I'm using a Strat here, with single coil pickups. Use the 2nd position of your 5 way switch - this turns on both the bridge and middle pickups together and creates a nice clean phased-out type clean tone.

AMP: A clean Fender-style amp would be great here. There's no effects used in this song, other than some reverb to give you some nice depth. Taking the drive control to 100% should still be on the clean side, just with more sustain and bite. If it starts to get fuzzy or distorted, lower your drive control until you get the notes/chords clean and clear.

Here are my settings using a Fender Deluxe model:

DRIVE:100%, BASS:100%, MID:55%, TREB:60%, PRES:50%

SPRING REVERB LEVEL:45%
