For the rhythm guitar, I'm playing a hollow body on the bridge position pick up. It's sort of dry and kind of spanky sounding, not as trebly as the lead guitar but certainly not too bassy or muffled.

The lead guitar will be played on a Telecaster dialed in on the bridge position pick up. I have the mids and treble set to 12 o'clock and the bass a bit less to get that crisp surf sound. You can use these settings for the rhythm guitar as well, the two guitars sound so vastly different that you won't need to redial your amp.

We're gonna need a lot of reverb for the lead too, as we're going for a sort of bubbly deep spring reverb sound that's associated with the surf guitar vibe.
