Aerosmith’s Joe Perry has been known for coining some of the fiercest riffs in music. For four decades, Perry has made the Gibson Les Paul his go-to guitar, and this legendary electric’s fat tone, singing sustain, and unparalleled playability have remained at the center of his sound. Gibson Custom honors Perry’s achievement with the Joe Perry Boneyard Les Paul, an instrument that embodies both the radical style and the unparalleled tone of this riffmeister supreme. The original model was released in 1996 with the optional Bigsby model introduced in 2010.
