Does anyone know what type of guitars the band Nickelback uses? As well as what amps they use?

Much appreciated

Wiki:
Chad mostly uses Paul Reed Smith (PRS Guitars); including Singlecut, McCarty 2, and 513 models. He's also been seen with Gibson and Gretsch electric guitars in his early career. He is said to have an Epiphone 7-string electric guitar as well. He has also been seen playing Martin, Yamaha, Gibson, Babicz, Fender, and Tacoma acoustic guitars. He has also been seen using Ryan Peake's acoustic guitar given to him by his father.

Sorted.

Wiki:
When playing, Peake mostly uses Gibson guitars such as Les Pauls, Gibson Explorers and Gibson Flying Vs, as well as a modified glass Lucite Gibson look alike Flying V that he plays Figured You Out with live in concert. He has also been seen using a Gretsch double neck electric guitar to play Someday before the band decided to have Chad Kroeger's guitar technician, Tim "Timmy" Dawson, play the 3rd guitar in concert, who has become popular thanks to Nickelback's European tour in September 2008. In Peake's early career, he mostly used modified Fender Telecasters. He would replace the Telecaster's pickups with EMG Humbuckers. He also uses Morgan and Gibson acoustic guitars. In concert, Peake uses his father's old acoustic guitar to play Photograph, this guitar can be seen played by Kroeger in the song's music video. He has a guitar-playing style similar to Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett.



Enough?

chad uses a prs singlecut for the sc range i think its a sc250 it retails for about £3000.He has it in about everycolour (green,black,blue,sunburst just to name a few). He has been seen using a custom 22 and 24 before as well man.
At the o2 arena he used a yamaha to play rockstar i think he usually uses them.
Ryan uses many different electrics he has used telecasters, les pauls and explorers and on the song side of a bullet he uses a dean zx of some sort or sumtimes an ml.
His acoustics r yamahas,takamines and an old one his dad gave him. (chad plays it on the someday video)
Chads amps are peaveys i believe

Yep.
Ain't no good spending thousands of pounds on a guitar and amp if you don't know how to dial in a decent tone.
