Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger has become the latest guitarist to be honoured with a signature Gibson Les Paul.

During a recent break in touring, the Canadian rocker visited the Gibson USA factory in Nashville to learn about the craftsmanship that goes into producing a brand new version of the iconic instrument.

"I was able to interact and talk to the people on the line at Gibson USA about the guitar and its design, and also to witness their pride in their work," he told the Gibson website.

Kroeger's signature Les Paul stays true to convention with its classic single cutaway design and magnetic humbucking pick-ups.

According to Gibson, the electric guitar contains "all the appointments that have made this guitar legendary for more than 50 years", as well as some new innovations.

Nickelback formed in Alberta in 1995, rising to fame with their 2001 single How You Remind Me.

Kroeger has also collaborated with other artists and contributed music to films, including the hit song Hero for Spider-Man in 2002.
