He's always been one of my favourite players, combining a great rhythmic sense with solid riffing and mad tones.

He seems to be using a synth-access Godin on this one and playing synth chords under his solo... really well executed:

Cheezy lyrics aside, i've always loved his rhythm and lead tone on Atomic Playboys. He must be using some kind of octave or treble booster on the solo. (Which is what inspired me to try an octave fuzz as a solo boost.) I love his rhythm grind on this track... it's a hell of a fun riff to play, too:

A man whose taste in ray guns, pickups, and ray gun pickups is unassailable.
