• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Alright, I never was a big fan of dark or tobacco bursts, but I have always been a big Aerosmith fan. I love Joe's riff mastering. So I decided to order the aged and signed Perry Burst. It arrived on friday and I picked it up immediately and compared it to The Beast that I got the same day. Now, the aging is quite different as are the originals, I suppose. The Perry has a lot of laquer cracks running all over the top, the side and the back also. They look very authentic as they always do when ol' Murph aged the guitar. The sides have many bumps and on the lowest point it has an imprint of a bridgepost or something else that is threaded and lay on the workbench, when somebody smashed Joe's guitar on it. They even copied an old broken headstock. There's a large area of orange peel looking surface in the arm wear area, maybe a result of Slash's bracelets? The tuner housings are aged massively as well.


The back might be a little bit too red as some other owner wrote in another thread. Therefore the binding is bone white on the worn portions on the neck where the laquer is scraped off. OK, there's always something not as perfect, but I don't care too much.


The guitar can look from plain to heavily flamed. It has some interesting grain and color going on in the control area.

Unamplified it just sings and rings and vibrations run all over the body and the neck. Amplified it seems that the PUPs have a little lower output, but great clarity and note separation. Very, very articulated. The sustain is just great and playing is big fun and easy on the Perry.

edit: I forgot to mention that the Perry aged and signed come with the leather guitar strap but that I will not use and so I stored it in the shipping box and that on the attic already, so no pics of it, sorry. But it's nice.


Have fun with the pictures

they are quite similar from their pure feeling. Perry is a tad lighter. The Perry has less output but a greater clarity and a wonderful note separation. They both are typical 2013 Les Pauls, they just ring and sing and vibrate all over. Really wonderful guitars, both of them

Great, Sharky! Die ist echt schön

But what is with these Joe Perry signatures? My five year old daughter has a nicer handwriting.

nothing is next. It's time to part from one or the other, but I really do not know which one to get rid of. I love them all.

But I would have enough space for an aged Bloomie, yer know?
