 Joe Perry of Aerosmith has created some of the fiercest riffs in rock history, and the guitar he relied on most was the Les Paul, which has helped form the band's sound. The Gibson Custom Joe Perry Boneyard Les Paul is an electric guitar built for rock enthusiasts, especially Aerosmith fans. The maple top is carved and highly figured, coated by a "Green Tiger" nitrocellulose lacquer that dries thin to allow for a better tone, and brings out the depth and detail of the maple. The guitar also features vintage cream binding, aged nickel hardware, and Kluson-style tulip-button tuners to give the look of a real vintage electric guitar. The headstock says "Boneyard" in mother-of-pearl, and the truss rod cover is engraved with Joe Perry's signature. There is also a Tune-o-matic bridge and a stopbar tailpiece for enhanced sustain. There is a BurstBucker 2 humbucking pickup in the neck for warmer, vocal tones, and a BurstBucker 3 in the bridge for midrange and lead tones. The guitar also has a 22 fret rosewood fretboard. Joe Perry requested that the neck pickup should be re-wired for funky, out-of-phase tones in the middle position, for added versatility. It comes in an "Aged Tiger Green" colour.
