The ideal guitar choices for this song are an electric solid body equipped with a floating and locking whammy bar system and humbucker pickups for Brad Gillis' parts and a Gibson Les Paul for Jeff Watson's solo.

An amp with a decent amount of distortion is necessary to capture the guitar tones. For the crunchy guitar rhythm guitar parts set the distortion (or gain on some amps) to about 12 o'clock, bass at 9 o'clock, mid at 12 o'clock, and treble at 4 o'clock. For the guitar solos boost the distortion to about 2 o'clock. These settings should get you pretty close the Night Ranger tone, but feel free to experiment.
