Actually, the instrument you hear in “Good Vibrations” is a tannerin, a relative of the theremin that is much easier to control.

No, it was actually a precursor to the tannerin, called an electro-theremin, and designed by Tanner. Only one was built. In addition to Good Vibrations, the Beach Boys used it for I Just Wasn’t Made for These Times and Wild Honey. It was also used in the theme to the TV show My Favorite Martian.
