I’m using a Les Paul set for the bridge pickup for this tune, but any guitar is suitable.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amp is a desirable choice. Dial in a clean tone by setting the Drive to 35%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 65%.

Add some reverb for depth.

I’m using 10-46 gage with a heavy pick to dig into those strums.

Here are the settings I used:
Fender Deluxe Model:
Drive: 35% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 65%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 35%
