How to get this guitar tone?

Hi slutz,

I heard the Song "Eli - change your mind" in the radio and liked the guitar at the beginning. Can anybody tell me, how I can achive this?
Is this just a regular e-guitar on amp recording with a reverb plug or anything special?
How would you record this? What type of amp, mic, micposition, room(amp room) would you use? Can i achive this with cheap gear?

Thanks for your help friend

Here for the gear

It's a clean sound but warm, not strained and not bright. There is a little chorus and reverb. I don't see why you couldn't achieve it with a cheap guitar as long as the action is good and there's no buzzing.

For cheap gear in general, I'd say ITB is the way to go. A nice amp, effects pedals and microphones will add up.

Using either hybrid picking or fingerstyle. The chords are "clawed".
