As far as guitars go, any Strat or Tele style guitar will work great here. The single coil pickups provide a bright jangly tone perfect for cutting through the organ and rhythm section.

For amps, any vintage Fender style tube amp is the perfect choice. Dial in just a touch of pre-amp gain for a bit of grit, but the tone should be mostly clean and jangly. A touch of spring reverb will add some depth as well. Check out the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model: Drive: 25% Bass: 40% Mid: 50% High: 55% Presence: 50%

Spring Reverb: Wet/Dry Mix: 40%
