Gold Top Les Paul Brad Whitford Aerosmith

Brad Whitford is the guitarist in the rock band Aerosmith.  Like his counterpart Joe Perry, he too has a very large collection of guitars.  Brad Whitford can be considered a guitar “connoiseur”.  There are some great videos of Brad ripping on youtube, he is actually a pretty technical guitarist.  Brad has also been seen recently trying out Bad Cat Amplifiers. Specifically the Bad Cat Hot Cat amps.  I’ve played through these myself and they definetly rip!  Here is a list of some recent equipment Brad has been spotted with.

– “On Les Pauls, I use .009-.042s. On Strats and Teles, I basically go with a .010, or in some cases a little heavier. If I tune a guitar down, I might go to an even heavier gauge.” Brad Whitford
