C.C. Deville needs to climb out from underneath his rock.

Not vibrato, tremelo. Easy to confuse.
Use lots of reverb, too. Not artificial, it needs to be spring.

I can't think of anyway to simulate reverb. Until you can get something with reverb, make sure you have your treble turned up and stick with the bridge pickup. Those are also major parts of a surf tone.

Bridge pickup, mids and treble on 10, bass at 3 or 4, reverb, gain around 4.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

The best surf rock in my opinion comes from as little gain as you can get without it being absolutely unnoticable, having a lot of middle, moderate treble, and moderate bass. Heavy gauge strings are a must for this type of rock. Bridge pickup. Lots of palm muting.

I think vibrato would help alot to get a surf tone. I had a vibrato on my last fender amp, DSP-90 Deluuxe... I always thought it sounded Californiaish.
