Brad Whitford’s Aerosmith 2011 Fender Custom Shop, Telecaster Rising Sun, Legendary Child, Authenticated! (#45) $17,004.00

WOW! Here's a rare opportunity to own a piece of history from the greatest American hard rock band ever.

After 50 years in Aerosmith, and a lifetime infatuation with guitars and amps, Brad Whitford accumulated so much gear that it’s overflowing his warehouse. He used this gear to create some of the most iconic rock and roll of our time. He selected over 170 of his precious guitars, amps and speakers and asked my help in finding them new homes with players and fans who will appreciate them as much as he does. There’s a ton of amazing gear here. Keep watching, we’re posting more of Brad’s collection every day.

See more from Brad about this amazing collection in the video above.

Serial #Cz519689

From the Brad Whitford Collection at Donn Bennett’s Drum Vault.

Here’s a sweet Custom Shop Telecaster acquired directly from Brad Whitford. Brad got this guitar in 2011 and it’s been one of his go-to Teles ever since. You can see this guitar extensively in Aerosmith live videos including their Rock For The Rising Sun DVD filmed in Japan to aid victims of the Fukushima disaster in 2011. It can also be seen in their official 2012 Legendary Child video. The guitar includes the original Fender inspection tag and an Aerosmith set list from St Barths found in the case.

This guitar can be seen in legendary rock photographer Ross Halfin's ListenTo Whitford coffee table book.

Brad’s guitar tech personally inspected the guitar. He adjusted the neck, polished the frets, oiled the fretboard, sprayed the pots and installed new strings. The guitar is in excellent working condition with no notable issues. The guitar is identified by an Aerosmith inventory tag on the headstock. It includes a hardshell case, one of Brad’s custom Aerosmith guitar pics and a certificate of authenticity signed by Brad Whitford.
