Mysterious ways live solo - what effects?

I have a slide with an epiphone Les Paul custom, but I can't figure this one out at all, Does anyone know what effect edge is using? It makes the solo sound sort of... "thick", if you know what I mean, not what you'd expect from a one string note...

Are you SURE it's 12-string? Zoom in on the ZooTV DVD, looks fairly standard to me, there are only 6 tuning heads...

It is a 12. 6 tuners face out and 6 face down.

I couldn't figure if Rickenbacker Edge uses for SYCMIOYO is a 12 string or not.

The pictures on this site explain the confusion: http://www.rickbeat.com/modelslibrar...60-12-1963.htm

I don't suppose I stand any chance of emulating it with a pitch shifter, do I?

I did that before I got my Ric. I thought it sounded pretty good.... but then when I got the Ric, it was like the lights got turned on. All Edge's 12 string stuff came alive...MW, Gone, Even Better, etc.

If you don't have or can't afford a 12, using a pitch shift, IMO, is the next best thing to thicken the tone. I used my DHP33.
