Always loved the surf instro stuff and lately have been more focused on playin surfy 'billy music. Well, I attempt to play these things anyways. But I'm curious as to what you all think makes up a great surf guitar. What's special about these instruments that lend themselves to the the genre? As far as I gathered if it isn't a strat, some sort of funky shaped offset works well. Single coils mostly and a vintage style trem. While not completely perfect IMO I can get a pretty good vintagey jangly tone out of my iceman with the surf 90 in the bridge and the HB lipstick (coil tapped) in the middle. So guys what are your thoughts on what makes a great surf guitar?
