I thought it sounded quite a strange tone, slightly synthetic, and then I noticed the Roland MIDI pickup (confirmed after some digging on the web). So I strongly suspect that the sound is a mix of guitar and synth. If you are after that exact sound, you may not get it with the guitar alone. Of course he may not be using the MIDI pickup on that song, but it does sound to rather like he might be.
You may find that a Boss SY300 will give you a similar sound without the need to fit a MIDI pickup.
