The guitar used on this recording was an Ibanez Destroyer, similar in style to the Gibson Explorer.

You'll definitely want a humbucker pickup for this song, toggle switch preferred with two volume knobs (for the trick at the end of the guitar solo). You can come close to this guitar tone using a high gain amp, or modeling amp with a high gain setting similar to a Mesa Rectifier or a modded Marshall stack.

The most extreme bend in this song is 2 and a half steps! That's tough on the fingers, you may want to try a set of .09 gauge guitar strings if you're having trouble reaching these notes.
