Any acoustic guitar will work well here, but one with a brighter tone will help cut through the rest of the band.

Also, any electric guitar will do the trick here. The tone is not very distinctive, other than using the bridge pickup for a touch more bite.

As far as amps go, any Fender-style tube amp will do the trick. Set for a basic clean sound and add some reverb to give some depth. Check out the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model: Drive: 35% Bass: 50% Mid: 70% High: 50% Presence: 55%

Spring Reverb: Wet/DryMIX: 45%
