Even before the Fender Rhodes electric pianos in the early 60's they used a lot of Farsifa organs. Farsifa of Italy was the manufacturer.Source(s): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farfisa

You must be asking about organ. I suggest search wikipedia for a few brands that were used, because there wasn't just one.

The Bass Guitar, like Fender Precision, or Jazz-Bass. Also Instrument Amplifiers like Fender, Vox, and Marshall.

A lot of 60s bands used nothing other than guitars and a drum kit, such as a Premier or Ludwig brand.
Looking through my video collection for others, with different instruments where the manufacturers name is visible:
The Dave Clark Five used Vox keyboard.
The Tremeloes had one labelled "Bird"
Some bands included a double bass, but no make visible..
And lots of saxophones, some trumpets etc. - but again no way of knowing what make.
Jon Lord of Deep Purple used a Hammond C3 organ.
Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull played a Selmer Gold Seal flute.

There were multiple manufacturers of most instruments, so manufacturer name wasn't really that important. With guitars and basses, players played what they liked (or what they could afford in the closest thing to the instruments the musicians that inspired them played).
The biggest names in drums were Ludwig, Pearl and Slingerland. The biggest name in cymbals was Zildjian.
Rock organ of the 60s was primarily Vox, Farfisa, and Hammond.
Pianos could have been any brand but for rock music on stage would most likely have been a Wurlitzer electric piano (Fender-Rhodes dominated the 1970s).

You have some good answers already. I think the most distinctive instruments of the sixties (apart from electric guitar which you mention) were keyboard instruments - the Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer and Hohner electric pianos, the Hohner Clavinet, the Hammond organ, the Vox Continental organ and the Mellotron.

Without dwelling on exact dates. Generally, the Fender Rhodes electric piano was everywhere. Also generally, it's about when the Moog Synthesizer came into it's own.
