I’m using a Telecaster set for the bridge pickup for a bright, powerful tone, but any electric guitar is suitable.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amp is a desirable choice. Set the amp for a light crunch sound. Set the Drive to 60%, Bass to 50%, Mid to 50%, Treble to 65%, and Presence to 65%. Add some reverb for depth.

I’m using 10-46 gage for the electric with a heavy pick.

Here are the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model:
Drive: 60% Bass: 50% Mid: 50% Treb: 65% Presence: 65%
Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 35%
