After Joe Perry tweeted about a collaboration with Gibson Custom Shop in February, you could say he had our attention. The Aerosmith guitarist stated that he had been working with the company for three years to build a guitar that best represented him, the single pickup ‘Gold Rush’ Signature Les Paul.
Gibson has finally announced their latest model – the single pickup ‘Gold Rush’ Signature Les Paul, built in collaboration with Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry.
Gibson has finally announced the release of the new ‘Gold Rush’ Model’. It sports a single 498T humbucker pickup, however, it includes a Wilkinson/Gotoh VS100N two-point tremolo system. Also unique is the two tone knobs, one which has a push/pull coil-split function and the second, a single volume control. Of course, there’s no switch as there’s only one pickup.
The body is finished in an Antique Gold, hand aged at the Gibson Custom Shop and the mahogany neck has ’59 profile.
Joe Perry’s Gold Rush Signature Les Paul will be available in limited numbers, 25 signed and 125 unsigned models worldwide. For more information head to Gibson’s website.
