Joe Perry Guitar Rig

Gibson Joe Perry Boneyard Les Paul Shown

Being from Boston, it’s almost required as a guitar player growing up to become a huge Aerosmith fan.  When I think Joe Perry, it’s usually Les Pauls and Marshall Stacks that come to mind.  Joe Perry has stated in some interviews that he has over 600 guitars in his collection! I couldn’t possible list all of them here, so lets look at some gear he’s been spotted with in some past tours..
