Sounds like a neck single coil run through a slighly overdriven tube amp. I'll take a look at their gear and see if I can't figure out what it is.

Edit: Oh, it's a movie, not a band name. Huh. Well, my guess would be a Strat with a Marshall amp. Some other's opinions would be good too.

ugh if there are effects they are most likely; reverb, compression, chorus. light distortion... likely from a tube amp but you could probably replicate it with a pedal. the guitar honestly is probably the least important thing. he's got a good amount of sustain but that can be achieved with effects.

Only once you establish the pickup type. Single coils sound a lot different from 'buckers.

That's Jeff Beck playing, by the way. It's from an older recording and they put it in the movie.

Don't forget to play with your fingers

Exactly. Jeff Beck can make anything sound good. I'm afraid unlike the usual cliches, 90% of his tone genuinely is in his fingers! He uses whatever gear he can get his hands on, but always sounds like JB

A Strat through any kind of vintage-sounding amp will work well, a cranked Marshall or Fender. You'll need plenty of delay too.

Here's the live version anyway:

And check out his bass player too...she's only about 23, but absolutely stunning.
