I have always been a fan of Aerosmith and a fan of Joe Perry because they just have a swagger and style that appeals to my ears. I really like Joe's playing and even though his style isn't unique since it is mostly blues plays it has a great feel and tone. I am glad that Gibson made a tribute signature guitar for him because this guitar is absolutely beautiful. The flamed top of this guitar has to be one of the best I have seen. It is rated as a AAA top which is a nice looks and for the money is is actually cheaper than a VOS '59 which can be a little hit or miss at times.

The tone of a Gibson Le Paul doesn't really change that much and if you heard 5 Gibson LP guitar on an album you could not point out which one was which. This guitar is for a fan of Aerosmith and more importantly Joe Perry. So if you are a fan of his and even if you are not the top on this guitar is quite exquisite. If you want a great sounding guitar that that can rip it up tonally but also look great doing it than this is the go to guitar. The features in this guitar really aren't anything different than you would see from other LP guitars. The tone of this guitar is nice and beefy but still a Les Paul tone none the less.


At new you can pick these up for right at around $4700, which is not a lot for a custom Gibson LP. It is a lot of money for anything music gear related but compared to the custom Gibson LP's that are either '59 or '58 than this price comes under that by quite a lot. This is a cool guitar and if you can live with it being a signature guitar than it is a great sounding and looking guitar. If not then I suggest getting a used custom LP that has some life left on it because then you can get a lower price.
