Gavin said: Definately not. You can hear him picking the strings behind the bridge in the intro. That means it's very probably his Jaguar.
I dunno 'bout that...
with distortion, and your fingers lightly touching the strings on the F powerchord (1 3 3x x x x) you simply pluck the E & A behind the bridge and you can emulate those notes quite easily and convincingly.
EDIT: Actually, you should detune 1/2 a step and play F# D E
