Guitar 1 uses a Stratocaster electric guitar, but any guitar is suitable. The tone has more to do with the amp settings. Be sure to select the bridge pickup for an edgier tone. For Guitar 2, any acoustic guitar can be used, but one with a brighter tone will help to cut through the band a bit better.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amp is a desirable choice. Set up the amp for clean by dialing the Drive to 40%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 65%.

Add some reverb to both guitars for depth.

I used a 10-46 string gage, with a heavy pick so I can dig into those strums.

Here are the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model:
Drive: 40% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 65%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 40%
