[QUESTION] What type of guitar is this?

I am interested in the instrument in this song right at the beginning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcyA7lJNwwM

First of all, is it a guitar, or is it something else? If it is a guitar, is there a special type he's playing or is it a standard guitar? As you might be able to tell, I know next to nothing about guitars.

I know this is probably a dumb question and a weird time of year, but I think the sound is really pretty and I'd like to consider learning to play whatever he plays. 🙂 Thanks!

P.S.: Is what he is playing a difficult song? How long would it take a beginner like me to get to a point where they could play this song?

[GEAR] Need help deciding between a Vintage 1956 Stratocaster or an American Elite Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker

I've been playing classical guitar for 2 years now but I really don't know much about electric guitars

My thought process is to buy just one nice electric guitar that will be my baby

Forgive me for my noobness

Here's the links Vintage 1956 http://shop.fender.com/en-US/electric-guitars/stratocaster/american-vintage-56-stratocaster/0111502801.html#start=1

American Elite Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker http://shop.fender.com/en-US/electric-guitars/stratocaster/american-elite-stratocaster-hss-shawbucker/0114110723.html#start=1

Is the price difference really worth it? Because if it is I have no problem with the money, I just want to make sure it's actually worth it

Thank you!

[PLAY] Little Wing Band Cover

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TA4WfYHAmZk

Found this on YouTube, not my cover. For me, this band does a phenomenal job cause they play it really well in a different way. The vocals are a little less harsh but really floaty, the guitar has a really good solo, and there's a solid piano solo in there too. Overall, there's some really decent pocket playing and everyone seems to be in the groove.

Little Wing covers are so much fun to listen to lol.

edit: post wrong link first time around

[GEAR] Best archtops for ~$1000?

Looking to getting my first archtop, mainly because I want that rich tone for my jazz playing. Anyone have recommendations? I like wide necks, but that isn't really a priority.

[QUESTION] VOX ac30c2 burning smell (help!)

So, the past 2-3 times I played my ac30c2 I started to notice a rattle/buzz from the backside of the amp, and after doing research I had figured it was tube rattle. I had read suggestions of ordering a product to dampen the buzzing, or to try and take the tubes out and put them back in. I decided to take the tubes out and put them back in. I was extremely careful in doing so, and made sure to place them all back into the exact spots they were in. They are the stock tubes, Chinese made. After turning the amp on to warm up for 5 minutes, I put my guitar direct in to the top boost low gain input, my usual choice. Once I took it off standby and began to play, I could smell a faint burning smell coming between the 1st and 2nd power tube, those that are right next to the preamp tubes. I didn't try to keep playing, but am unsure of what went wrong or if I am making a blatant mistake. I usually jump the channels while playing, and I usually play with my master volume between 25-40% of the max. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated
