Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has kept himself busy since returning to the public eye following emergency hospitalization last November. Perry was with his Aerosmith bandmates in Atlanta earlier this month to perform at a pre-Super Bowl concert, followed by another performance in Los Angeles on Sunday for Steven Tyler‘s Grammy-watching party/foundation fundraiser. While in Los Angeles, Perry recently stopped by one of Gibson Guitar‘s west coast showrooms, where he recorded a brief video to give fans the first look at his forthcoming signature line of Les Paul guitars.Anyone who has followed Perry’s career over the years knows that he’s a huge fan of Gibson’s Les Paul model, and has even helped design a few of his own signature guitars for the brand in the past. The latest design is that of a simple bronze-burst finish, with only two control knobs on the body of the guitar compared to the typical four. The guitar also only has one pickup with no visible switch for players to toggle between “treble” and “rhythm” modes when plugged in. According to the statement made by Perry along with a video shared to his Twitter early Wednesday, the latest design took nearly three years of work before coming to a final product. Fans can check out the guitarist’s latest Les Paul model in the video below.last_img
