Get the Tone
Paul has played Ibanez throughout his career; most notably his PGM signature series. He used the ADA MP-1 preamp in the early days but later switched to Laney amps. Paul’s tone is present and trebly, opting mainly for the bridge pickup. Heavier gauge strings such as 10s and 11s are more stable for his picking intensive style and a relatively thin .60 pick provides a snappy attack. Go for plenty of front-end drive and a hint of reverb.
