What Kenyan artists are you into? I think of "Kenyan guitar" as being a rough acoustic sound, the rest of non-south Africa guitar I generalize as the Ali Farka Toure sound, which is kind of like a JC-120 thing?
There's a compilation album called Guitar Paradise of East Africa with artists like Daniel Kamu and Orchestre Super Mazembe. The song by H. O. Kabaselleh is a good example of what I wanted, although not quite as trebly. Overall the music isn't as polished as the more mainstream Afropop, but the guitars are distinctive and I love that sound. I also used that kind of guitar sound on the "Maladie Du Coeur" song from my Neo- album.
