I wonder if anyone can help me?

Does anyone know how the tone on Billy Corgan's guitar is achieved for the solo of 'For Martha' from the album 'Adore'

It is such a sweet tone, almost Brian May like in many ways, sounds kinda like the Deaky amp, very very over driven, so im guessing he may have used a trebble boost pedal

The solo starts at 4:26 in the song, its a lovely song, worth getting hold of whether you know about guitars or not.

Anyway sorry for writing so much, hopefully someone will know the song and can at least have an educated guess as to how he may have got this sound!
