It is a fact that Kenny plays Gibson guitars. On the Gibson site there was a blurb about how Kenny's favorite guitar is the Gibson Les Paul Standard (an awesome guitar by the way).

- In one picture it appeared that Kenny was playing a sunburst Gibson Les Paul standard. It's one of the most popular guitars of all time:

- In another Kenny Chesney is playing what appeared to be a Gibson Les Paul classic, in black.

- Kenny also has been seen playing a Takamine 2001 Limited Edition guitar.

 

- For amplfiers, there is even less info. Kenny Chesney is a Peavy endorser. On their site there is a bio for him but it mysteriously doesn't list the gear he uses. There is however this paragraph in a different section of the site: "Chesney's band uses Peavey T-Max bass amplifiers and Classic 30 and Nashville Series steel guitar amplifiers".

Here is the Peavey Classic 30 amp:

- Bad Cat amplifiers have also been seen at Chesney shows
