Brad Whitford’s Aerosmith Epiphone, Elitist Casino, Blonde  Authenticated! (BW2 #35) $11,984.00

Serial #T118367

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

This spectacular Epiphone Elitist started seeing some serious road action on Aerosmith's 2012 Global Warming tour. This was Brad's "go-to" guitar for Aerosmith's best selling, "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing". This guitar replicates the blonde Elitist that John Lennon referred to as "his favorite guitar". The guitar has been used extensively in the studio with Aerosmith as well as recordings with Joe Bonamassa.

The guitar is in excellent condition showing very minor evidence of years of touring the world with America's greatest rock and roll band. You can see and here Brad talk about this very guitar in the 2012 Premier Guitar Rig Rundown video below.

Acquired directly from Brad Whitford. 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.
