How can I get that oh so warm and funky tone?

Which guitar would you say is most suited for it?

I'm thinking a Fender Strat... with some wah wah. But I think I'm missing something. Any help?

Well, the Reggae tone is usually a pretty sharp clean sound. Use the bridge pickup. Play staccatto chords with upstrokes on the 2nd and 4th beats of the bar. The bass drum plays the 1st beat.

You might wanna use a short delay with 1-2 repeats for some extra vibe. Works well.

And a strat should do fine, but you can play reggae on almost any guitar.

You could use just about any guitar really. I've seen strats, teles, Bob Marley played a Les Paul sometimes. Generally clean amps like Fender Twins. The reggae sound is a lot about playing on the upbeat, a fun intro would be some Sublime like Santeria.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

Strats, Teles, Les Pauls, If you count Ska as a type of reggae, even Ibanez.
IMO look at a guitar with a variety of pickups so HSS HSH, maybe HSP90 HSLipstick pickup etc.

An old Silvertone or Danelectro would be a great reggae/surf guitar.

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.
