Guitar sound On Reckoner by Radiohead

hi guys,

I really love the warmth of the guitar sound on the track Reckoner by Radiohead.

I'm sure a large part of the sound is the way Tom plays it, but would anyone hazard a guess to which gear he would be using to achieve the warm boxy sound.

It sounded almost like a jazz amp to me like a Polytone, Henriksen.

What do you reckon?

I checked the Scotch-mist version and Thom's playing the SG in that one too.

SG with fingers... I bet a condenser was used on the amp, that's part of the equation (bright clarity) in the Basement video it's a U87 I think?

alnico speakers have that kind of nice compression, too, pretty sure I can hear it all over that track
