Brad Whitford’s Aerosmith Gibson, Explorer "Guitar Hero Prop" Authenticated! (#174)

WOW! Here's a rare opportunity to own a truly unique 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.

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

Just when I think I've seen everything! This "prop" guitar is one of two prop guitars and one bass made for Aerosmith and used in the production of the Aerosmith Guitar Hero video games. One corner of the guitar body and the end of the headstock are cracked, as if they were smashed. I'll assume, that rather than destroy a perfectly good guitar, they opted to use fakes instead. If that's true, then maybe "The Bad Boys From Boston" aren't as bad as we actually thought, or at least they love their guitars too much to intentionally destroy them.

They are pretty convincing fakes. They have an actual neck with real tuning pegs. On the the body are three actual knobs and strap pegs. All the strings, hardware, pick ups and pick guard are photo replicas.

Acquired directly from Brad Whitford. It includes a Gibson hardshell case, one of Brad’s custom Aerosmith guitar pics and a certificate of authenticity signed by Brad Whitford.
