Opeth's gear

Hey guys!
I just got 'Blackwater Park' by Opeth... these guys are amazingly talented. Very VERY interesting music. Anyway, i was wanting to know what kind of guitars/ amps were used on the album. Their acoustic sounds are especially great!
If anyone knows, or has pics/links, please post!

Their website has recent gear archives of the equipment used to record their albums. Just pay a visit to www.opeth.com. The live setup is different, though. I believe in Europe, they play Laney heads. When I saw them last month in California, it was Marshall JCM 800 series heads, Marshall cabs, Boss GT-5 (or maybe 6?) multi-effects. I didn't see rack gear, but it may have been located to the side or rear of the stage. Guitars used live were PRS models (24 fret, not sure of the specific model). Both Mikael and Peter played them.
