When playing the vocal part of a song using a guitar what tone is suitable/generally used?

i.e. jazz, slightly distortion, chorus etc??

This video shows what the vocal tune sounds like being played with a piano, am not quiet sure what tone to use for a guitar.

a nice, tight tone, not too much distortion, if any, and not over the top on reverb. After that, it's entirely up to you. Just make sure you're hitting the same notes as the vocals, especially if you're playing while the singer is singing. Having the medlody is the most important thing, not the tone.

Thanks

The song is sang by a female so should I hold back on the bass and up the treble?

Using the neck pickup will give u fatter/darker tone. That might mix in well with her voice (i'm asuming she doesn't sound like a guy).

Normally i think using the neck pickup with some distortion and reverb works well.
