As far as electric guitars go, any guitar with single coil pickups such as a Telecaster or Stratocaster will be a great choice. The pickups provide that bright, jangly sound associated with classic country. Any acoustic guitar is suitable to play this tune, but one with a brighter tone would cut through better if playing with bass, drums, and piano.

As far as amps go, any vintage Fender style tube amp is the perfect choice. Keep that tone bone clean; again, the staple classic country sound. A touch of spring reverb will add some depth as well. The electric guitar in this tune also uses a ton of chorus, a typical sound for this particular era. Check out the settings I used:

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

Spring Reverb: Wet/DryMIX: 40%

Chorus: Rate: 45% Depth: 50% Wet/DryMIX: 60%
