Gibson is continuing their legacy as some of the best guitars out there and releasing a limited edition exact replica of Joe Perry’s serial number 9-0663 Les Paul. Perry’s most prized possession has definitely made the rounds to numerous musicians over the years, including Slash, Billy Loosigian, and Eric Johnson. Perry could not be more pleased about the release, gushing:
“It’s got everything a great Les Paul is supposed to have. The neck isn’t quite as fat as, say, a ’54 Goldtop, but it’s still got a good, meaty neck. It’s not a high-output guitar, so it’s got a lot of tone…and it’s got all the natural sustain and warmth, and when you turn it up it growls.”
Sounds like one hell of a guitar, if you ask me! If you feel so inclined as to snatch one of these babies up, you better hurry, because only 50 are hand-signed, 100 are aged, and 150 are finished in Gibson’s VOS process. So, what are you waiting for? Get shredding!
