I'm using a Stratocaster for this song, but any guitar with a single coil pickup in the bridge position with work great. The single coil provides a bright tone perfect for clean rhythms and spanky leads.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amplifier is a perfect choice. Setup the amp for a clean sound with a touch of grit. Set the Drive to 55%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 65%. Add some reverb to all guitars for depth.

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:

Fender Deluxe Model:
Drive: 55% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 65%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 40%
