Specific Tone Question

As a few know, I dabble a bit in slide. Good fun is what it is, no question about it. I do have a questions regarding a specific slide tone. It's in this video here at about the 010 range, and from a different artist and song (Thanks Don) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDY42pFwq7c . The latter is used as a fill, but the first moment is at about the 15 second mark.

I've tried several different effects, mostly distortion/gain/fuzz/overdrive types. I do have a glass slide. The closest I've come is with it, LP in mid position and my GT-10 with a bit of extra gain and some reverb (plate type) the G & B strings around the 14th - 18th frets.

Thanks in advance for any tips. It's got a haunting quality to it that I enjoy and would like to replicate to some extent.

recorded songs have much studio work on them so for us to figure it out by ear is next to impossible.
my ears tell me it is a guitar, humbucker, and amp with reverb or a touch of sustained(delay).
I think your approach with a bit of gain on the LP is the right course.

Thanks for giving it a listen and some thought, DB. I think my next step will be to mess with varying reverb styles. I need to learn more about them anyhow rather than keep on using the same thing over and over.
