I'd guess this is the proper place to ask this.

I'm looking for a way to get the lead guitar tone found in the radio remix of Weezer's Pink Triangle. It's used for the lead lines during the verses, ("when I start to feel that pull..." "when I think I found that good old fashioned girl...") and the solo.

It sounds almost synth-like in smoothness. I know Rivers used a slide during that period and made liberal use of feedback, but those two things together just aren't getting it, there's gotta be something else. Anyone have any ideas?

Sounds like his regular lead tone with a synth line played under it.

Sounds similar to an ebow though, maybe that could work?

Also, Rivers likes to add the octave to his lead lines. You could try that as well.

Possibly. I just know he used a Marshall at some point. Can't recall when, right now.
