As far as guitars go, a Strat style guitar is the perfect choice. Any guitar with single coil pickups will also work well.

With amps, any vintage tube amp would be the authentic choice, but any amp with a basic clean tone will do. Set for a clean sound with plenty of reverb to get that authentic early rock 'n' roll sound! For the guitar solo, I kicked in an overdrive for a thicker tone and more sustain. Check out the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model: Drive: 50% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treble: 60% Presence: 55%

Tube Screamer (Guitar Solo): Drive: 75% Level: 100%

SpringReverb: Wet/Dry MIX: 60%
