Because I grew up in the 60’s, I think about these genres a lot but have never quite known how to create a thread that would include them all. The guitars used obviously originated from the day which many times were by today’s standards may be considered odd, less popular, eccentric or unconventional. I bought this Tiki Bird new in 2013 and it has served me very well for these purposes. For these genres I feel the key elements needed are a unique tone and a vibrato system. What other guitars do you all use that lends itself to these niche styles?
