Brad Whitford’s Aerosmith 1990s, Fender Telesonic, Tobacco, Autographed! Authenticated! (BW2 #30) $10,819.00

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.

Serial #9399521

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

Here's a guitar that goes way back with Brad and Aerosmith. The Telesonic is basically a hot-rodded Telecaster that features a chambered mahogany body, a 24.75" scale length, a Wilkinson stud tailpiece and a pair of DeArmond USA 2K single coil pickups.

You can see and hear Brad playing this guitar with Aerosmith in Japan, circa 2002. The guitar is in excellent condition but shows some obvious signs of use.

Photos of Brad playing this guitar can be seen in legendary rock photographer Ross Halfin's Listen To Whitford coffee table book.

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 soft-shell case, one of Brad’s custom Aerosmith guitar pics and a certificate of authenticity signed by Brad Whitford.
