There are two guitars in this arrangement and we'll cover both of them. I'm using a Strat style guitar & a small tube amp modeled on the smaller Fender amps like the Princeton.

The lead guitar will handle the melody and solo. So, in order to make it really stand out in the mix of all the instruments I have the guitar set on the bridge pickup. I also have the amp turned up loud enough to get some edge to the tone. It's not distorted, there's not a lot of gain. But just a little bit of breakup when I strike the strings hard.

The rhythm guitar needs to sit a little lower in the mix so it doesn't interfere with the lead melody or the bass. So, I'm using the middle pickup on the guitar and I've turned the amp down a little bit.
