What gear do you need for a sound like this?

Hi,

With reference to this video :

I would like to know what effects does one need to create a sound like the one played in the solo (starts around 2:45) in this song? Sounds like an Indian instrument (no idea which).

I suspect that its some sort of octave generator or a synth engine, but I am not sure.

Please help.

PS: I am a guitar noob.

Might sound strange because it's not the best recorded sound, but it is just a guitar.

Yup, just sounds like a really poorly-recorded guitar, made even worse by low file quality and youtube compression. There's no special gear you need to replicate that tone, though you might find you get the 'best' results with a computer interface and modelling software; set the bass and gain high, put the mids and presence low, add a little reverb and use the neck pickup of your guitar with the tone control rolled back a little bit.
